Lahu Ko Surkh Gulabon Mein Band Rahne Do

lahu ko surḳh gulabon men band rahne do

shikasta ḳhvab ke shishon pe us ka aks pade

siyah mitti ke niche safed baal jale

kisi ke daant miri ungliyan chaba jaaen

ḳhala ke ziine se parchhaiyan utarne lagen

har ek lamhe ke chehre pe dhuup marne lage

udaas vaqt ke kandhe pe haath rakh ke chalun

buzurg baap ke chehre ki jhurriyan chumun

ḳhamosh hain dar-o-divar khidkiyan chup hain

gali ke mod pe ruk jaae raat ka saaya

mujhe na roko mujhe meri maan se milne do

ye mere bhaai ye bahnen ye hamila biivi

lahu ko surḳh gulabon men band rahne do
