रोव वतन मॆ दिलुक करार 

रोव रिशतन हुंद अतह पतह 

लॉनिस खतह या ज़ॉलिमस 

गरॖ गछ़नुक छुम तमह

पॅंज़िनि डूर्यन पोश फ्वलहन 

तॆमि बहारुक छुम तमह 

क्याज़ि थोवनस दूर एमिनिश 

क्यह मॆ क्वरमुत ओस खतह

आसि ख्वशबय सॉरिसॖय 

दिल फ्वलह्येम अख दमह 

म्यॉन्य अरमान रॅव्य करहॅन 

तॆमि वखतुक छुम तमह

च़ॅनदरॖ गाशस रॊफ तॖ वनवुन 

सॊनद्रि नच़हॅन चावॖ सान 

नगमॖ तम्बलन लोलॖ बॉतव 

तॆमि शामुक छुम तमह 

पोशॖ ॲतरा तति आसिहे 

सोंतॖ वावुक छुम मॆ शोख 

पनपोंपर गथ करन तति 

कुकिलि बोज़ुन छुम तमह

शीन गलिथिय ज्वयॖ वसॖहॉन 

र्वनि वज़हॅन पां क्वलन 

यॆलि यॅमबॖरज़ल तति फॊलिहे 

छुम गोलाबन हुंद तमह 

यार ऑसिथ पछ़ फुटरॖन 

छुर्य लॉयनम दिल फ्वटुम 

ऎतॖबारस ज़खम दितिनम 

क्येंह ति वननस गोम मनह

दिलॖ जिगरस खून कॊरनम 

छ़्यतॖ कॅर्यनम तॆम्य शमह 

तापॖ तच़रन तन मॆ ज़ॉजनम 

क्याज़ि द्युतनम युथ सज़ह

कुन छु सॉहिब ब्यॊन वतॖ छस 

ज़िनदॖगी हुंद तस यखतियार 

पेयि पायस कर यि ज़ॉलिम 

वेद रोज़िहे तथ गवह

Title: My yearnings

Lost my moorings and peace of mind

Lost my connect with my loved ones .

Was it my destiny or a marauder to blame

I yearn to be back to my home again.

Visualize pansies blooming in flower beds

Yearn for the spring scenic sights

Why was I deprived of this beauty around

Had I done any misdeed or any wrong.

I am longing for the floral fragrance there .

Would feel ecstatic with joy

and mirth

May my wishes to dance in abandon

waiting I am , for the tryst with the reality.

In the bright moonlit nights wish to hear wedding songs

When lasses would dance in ecstasy

Where love songs be lured by melodies

I yearn to be there in those charming nights.

I wish for the flower scented proximities

I yearn for the soothing Spring Breeze

When colourfull butterflies are fluttering around

I yearn for the songs of the Cuckoo around.

When Snow melts and rivulets flow down

When gurgling streams sound like anklets

When daffodils would be like flying fairies

Would like to be in the midst of Roses around.

A deceptive friend shattered my trust

Stabbed me in the back and broke my heart

He Injured my feelings of affection for him

Out of dejection I could not reveal it to anyone.

He maligned me and killed my feelings

Blowed off all the candles to creat darkness

The heat of the sun burned my skin and mind

Why did he punish me like the way he did.

God is there the only one , approach to him is manifold

He is the only life giver , and create life in various forms

When will the barbarian realize this truth

Ved would like to be witness for his change of heart.
