Wo Rut Bhi Aai Ke Mai Phool Ki Sahaili Huii

Mehek Mai Champa Kali, Roop Mai Chambeli Huii

Wo Sard Raat Ki Barkha Se Kiyu Na Pyaar Karun

Yeh Rut To Hai Mere Bachpan Ki Saath Kheli Huii

Zameen Pe Paaon Nahi Par Rahe Takabbur Se

Nigar-E-Gham Koi Dulhan Nai Nawaili Huii

Wo Chaand Ban Ke Mere Saath Saath Chalta Raha

Mai Us Ke Hijr Ki Raaton Mai Kab Akaili Huii

Jo Harf-E-Saada Ki Surat Hamesha Likhi Gai

Wo Larki Tere Liye Kis Tarah Paheli Huii
