Laila kita sawal mian majnun nu, teri laila te rang di kali aye

Laila kita sawal mian majnun nu, teri laila te rang di kali aye

Roman Style Urdu version of above Kafi of Baba Bulleh Shah

Laila kita sawal mian majnun nu
Teri laila te rang di kali aye
Dita jawab mian majnu ne
Teri akh na wekhan wali aye
Quran pak de warq chitay
Utay likhi sayahi kali aye
Chad we Bulhya dil de chadya
Te ki kali ki gori aye

Other Poems by Baba Bulleh Shah

Os Nal Yari Kadi na Layen
Mere Ishq de wich mashooq na ho
Heeray Sastay mul de wekhay
Wich Darhi Islam na koi
Jhalya Ishq Kamana Okha
Ik Nuktay wich gal mukdi aye
Nai langda waqt wichore da
Kar ghor hath dian unglian te
Charde suraj dhalde wekhay
