Bandeya!

This is one of my efforts to write a Punjabi piece of poetry. I got the inspiration from my recent visit to Multan, Bahwalpur and Dera Ghazi Khan. I am certainly going to write about distinctive experiences in my upcoming blog posts but this is the first that all of you should read. Also I apologize for making errors as I am not a native speaker of Punajbi but I really love that language. :)

BANDEYA

Sanjha mera pyar aye bandeya, Sanjha mera dil wee aye.
Sanjhi sab de naal mainu fiker wee teri raindi aye.

Teray sohnay hanjwan nu mai keray paase rakh dewaan,
Tere saare dukhaan nu main matti mai hurn dhans dewaan.

Teri pyari niyyat tay mai karyan tenu maala maal,
Teray pyare kamaan nu main changa karyan tera haal.

Teri ik muskaan waaste, baadal saare wasday nay,
Teri saari khushyan de wich phool wee saare hasde nay

Tu jo mainu kabhi pukaare, saare kamaan aik taraf.
Tu jo kar ke dua bulawe, Uchaa karan mai tera zaraf.

Phir bhi tu ik khabti aye, tenu mai kadee kaindaa nayee.
Mai tay tera rab hun hamesha, tu hee mera bandeya nayee.
