rafta rafta woh meri

One of the most popular ghazal of Mehdi Hasan. Its written by Tasleem Fazli.

rafta rafta woh meri hasti ka samaan ho gaye
pehle jaan phir jaan-e-jaan fer jaan-e-jaana ho gaye

din-ba-din badti gai us husan ki raanaiyan
pehle gul fir gul-badan fir gul-badaama ho gaye
rafta rafta woh meri hasti ka samaan ho gaye
(raanai=beauty)

aap to nazdik se nazdik-tar aate gaye
pehle dil fir dil-ruba fir dil ke mehmaan ho gaye
rafta rafta woh meri hasti ka samaan ho gaye
