Sohni Mahiwal, the two divine lovers who although could not spend a lifetime together but are still named together even today, when centuries have passed since this eternal story existed.

Main aaunga

Main Aaunga

Waqt ka kya aitbaar
Aaj is ore kal us paar
Milne tujhse kisi mod par
Main aaunga fir ek baar

Aahatein

Aahatein

Ye kaisi hain aahatein jo dhadkan sun leti hain
Ye kaise hain khwaab jo aankhein bun leti hain
Jo mud ke main peeche dekhun kabhi 
To waise hi dikhta hai sabhi
Par jo dil ki sunun, to aahatein teri milti hain
Jinme sochein meri kayi dhalti hain

Izteraab

Izteraab (Restlessness)

Aaj fir tere taghaful (neglect) ne diya sochon ka ek sailab (flood)
Jo tu bekhabar hai wahan, to kaisa hai ye izteraab
Jisne khade kar diye kuch sawalia nishan (question marks)
Jisne tod diye naa jaane kitne hi gumaan (notions)

Mere Raahgeer

Mere Raahgeer!

Aye raahgeer! Ye kaisa hai rishta humara
Saath hain ki nahi, jaise kisi nadi ka kinara

Main muntazir rehta hu,
tere har roz guzarne ka
Main musalsal raasta dekhta hu,
roz tere aane ka

Mann ki Khalaa

Mann ki Khalaa

Zehen me uth rahe jo kayi sawaal
Bawandar se uth rahe jo kayi khayal
Dhoondne chala jo main unke jawaab
Mila to sirf mujhe mustaquil izteraab 

Fir yoon hi ek din main chala
Bharne mann ki khalaa

Khwaab, dreams

Khwaab (Dreams)

Kaanch ke haseen khwaab jo,
gustaakh aankhein dekh baithi thi
Achaanak se subah hui jo,
palkein unhi se rooth baithi thi

Wo khwaab the
ya galatfahmiyan thi
Wo sawaab the
ya mehez khushfahmiyan thi

Baatein

Baatein

Ek dua jo aasmano se ata hui mujhe
Wo ankahi dua hai tu
Jisne fir se jeena sikhaya mujhe
Wo sukoon ka sabab hai tu

Aahat tere aa jaane ki
Bolti hain ab khamoshiyan bhi mujhse
Baatein jo zubaan ne naa ki
Kehti wo teri aankhein hai mujhse

Unsaid Words

Unkahi (Unsaid)

Kayi khat jo dil ne likhe
Unhe zubaan naa keh saki
Kayi harf jo aankhon ne padhe
Wo baatein jo bayaan naa hui

Shikayatein

Shikaayatein jo hain wo bol dein ki nahi
Shikaayatein jo reh gayin unsuni unkahi

Faasle jo failein hain darmayaan humare
Unko bharein hum, ya chhodein unke sahaare

Bol doon ki nahi (To say or not)

Is kadar sochte sochte aankhon me hi raat kat gayi
Kya kahun kya sunun ye hisaab lagate hi subah ho gayi

Ki bol doon ya chup rahoon, ya bas sirf ek ishara kar doon
Ki bhool jaun ya yaad rakhun, ya bas mehez chhod doon

The Infinite Ocean of My Heart

Sometimes when I see so many people around yet feel lonely, I think about you. Your voice, your words, I can still hear them clearly, the song you used to sing, the melody in your trembling voice is still as fresh as if you are here with me right now. The other moment I realize […]
