Raat Aadhee Kheench Kar Meree Hathelee
raat aadhee kheench kar meree hathelee
ek ungalee se likhaa thaa pyaar tumane.

faasalaa thaa kuchh hamaare bistaron men
aur chaaron or duniyaa so rahee thee.
taarikaaain hee gagan kee jaanatee hain
jo dashaa dil kee tumhaare ho rahee thee.
main tumhaare paas hokar door tumase
adhajagaa saa aur adhasoyaa huaa saa.
raat aadhee kheench kar meree hathelee
ek ungalee se likhaa thaa pyaar tumane.

ek bijalee chhoo gaee sahasaa jagaa main
kRShNapakShee chaa(n)d nikalaa thaa gagan men.
is tarah karavaT paḌee thee tum ki aa(n)soo
bah rahe the is nayan se us nayan men.
main lagaa doo(n) aag is sansaar men
hai pyaar jisamen is tarah asamarth kaatar.
jaanatee ho us samay kyaa kar guzarane
ke lie thaa kar diyaa taiyaar tumane!
raat aadhee kheench kar meree hathelee
ek ungalee se likhaa thaa pyaar tumane.

praat hee kee or ko hai raat chalatee
au ujaale men andheraa Doob jaataa.
manch hee pooraa badalataa kaun aisee
khoobiyon ke saath parade ko uThaataa.
ek cheharaa saa lagaa tumane liyaa thaa
aur mainne thaa utaaraa ek cheharaa.
vo nishaa kaa svapn meraa thaa ki apane
par gḥazab kaa thaa kiyaa adhikaar tumane.
raat aadhee kheench kar meree hathelee
ek ungalee se likhaa thaa pyaar tumane.

aur utane faasale par aaj tak
sau yatn karake bhee n aaye phir kabhee ham.
phir n aayaa vakt vaisaa
phir n maukaa us tarah kaa
phir n lauTaa chaa(n)d nirmam.
aur apanee vedanaa main kyaa bataaoo(n).
kyaa naheen ye panktiyaa(n) khud bolatee hain?
bujh naheen paayaa abhee tak us samay jo
rakh diyaa thaa haath par angaar tumane.
raat aadhee kheench kar meree hathelee
