Ilzaam

 

Mere te mere dost,
Toun ilzaam lagaaiyo!
Tere shehar di ik titali -
Da maen rang churaaiyo!
Patt ke maen kise baag chon
Gulmohar da buuta,
Sunsaan beeaabaan -
Maen maddheya ‘ch lagaaiyo!
Hundi hai suaanjhanne di -
Jiven jadd ‘ch kudditan,
Ohna hi mere dil de jaddeen
Paap samaaiyo!

Badkaar haan badchalan haan
Puj ke haan kameena
Har gham da araz jaan ke
Maen tul banaaiyo!
Maen shikara haan mennu chiddiyaan di
Sohndi nahi yaari!
Khoute ne mere rang -
Maen jhoottha lalaari!
Shuhrat di siyaah sapp -
Mere gal ‘ch palamdae,
Ddass jaayega mere geetaan sanno,
Dil di pataari!
Meri peed ashavthaama de -
Vaakan hi amar hai!
Ddhe jaayegi par jisam di
Chheti hi attaari!
Geetaan di mehak badale -
Men kookhaan di vanaj kardaan,
Tu likhiya hai maen bahut hi
Alhadd haan vapaari!

Tu likhiyae, ki put kiran
Hunde ne sadaa saaye!
Saayaan da nahi faraz -
Ki ho jaan paraaye!
Saaye da faraz bannda hai
Chaanan di vafaadaari,
Chaanan ‘ch sada agge -
Te chaanan ‘ch hi mar jaaya!

Dukh hunde je pinjare da vi -
Udd jaaya pankheru
Par maen te naven roz ne
Ddakke te uddaaye!
Kaaran hai havas ikko
Mere dil di udaasi,
Jo geet vi maen gaaye ne
Maayuus ne gaaye!

Tuun hor vi likhiyae,
Kise titali de bare!
Jis titali ne mere baag ‘ch
Kuj din si guzaare!
Jis titali nu kuj chaandi de
Phullaan di ttharak si,
Jis titali nu chaahide si
Sone de sitaare!

Pyaara si ohda mukhadda
Jyun chaann chaddeya ujaaddeen’
Mere geet jihdi nazar nu -
San bahut pyaare!
Manda saen toun mennu put
Kise saraswati da,
Ajj raaye badal gayi teri
Mere hai baare!
Aakhir ‘ch toun likheyae,
Kuj sharam karaan maen!
Beemaar jahe jisam -
Te geetaan de sanae maen,
Ttur jaavaan tere desh di
Ajj jooh chon paraan maen!
Meri kaum nu mere thouthe jahe -
Gham naheen luddeende,
Mennu chaahidae mazdoor de -
Hakkaan layi laddaan maen!
Mehboob da rang vand diyaan
Kannakaan nu saara,
Kul duniya da gham
Geetaan di mundari ‘ch jaddaan maen!
