Geet - Maaye Ni Maaye

 

Maaye ni maaye
Mere geetaan de naina vich
Birhon di raddak pave!
Adhi adhi raateen -
Utth roun moye mitraan nu
Maaye sahnu neend na pave!

Bhain bhain sugandhiyaan ‘ch -
Banna phehe chaanani de
Taanvi saahddi peed na save.
Kouse kouse saahaan di -
Maen karaan je takor maaye
Sagoun sahnu khaan nu pave.

Aape ni maen baaladdi,
Maen hale aap mataan jogi
Mat kehdda ais nu dave?
Aakh su ni maaye ehnu
Rouve bul chitth ke ni,
Jag kitey sunn na lave!

Aakh su ni kha laye tukk
Hijaraan da pakkeya,
Lekhaan de ni putthadde tave!
Chat laye tarael looni -
Ghamaan de gulaab toun ni,
Kaalaje nu hausala rave!

Kehddiyaan saperiyaan toun -
Mangaan kunj mel di men,
Mel di koi kunj dave,
Kehdda ehna damma diyaan -
Lobhiyaan de daraan ute,
Vaang khadda jogiyaan rave!

Peedde ni peedde -
Ik piyaar aisi titali hai,
Jehddi sada sool te bave!
Piyaar aisa bhaunr hai ni -
Jide koulon vaasna vi,
Lakhaan kohaan duur hi rave!

Piyaar oh mahal hai ni,
Jide ‘ch pakheruaan de,
Baajh kuj hor na rave,
Piyaar aisa aangana hai
Jide ‘ch ni vasalaan da
Ratadda na palang ddave!

Aakh maaye adhi adhi raateen
Moye mitraan de
Uchi uchi naa na lave!
Mate sahdde moyaan pichon,
Jag eh shareekadda ni,
Geetaan nu vi chandara kave.

Maaye ni maaye
Mere geetaan de naina vich
Birhon di raddak pave!
Adhi adhi raateen -
Utth roun moye mitraan nu
Maaye sahnu neend na pave!
