Mujhe teri mohabbat ne ajab ik roshni baskhshi,
Mein is dunya ko ab pehle se behter dekh sakti hoon.

Abr-e-bahaar ne
phool ka chehra
Apne banafshi hath mein le ker
Aese chooma
Phool ke sarey dukh
Khushbu ban kar beh nikle

Gaye baras ki eid ka din kya acha tha,
chaand ko dekh ke uskaa chehra dekha tha

Fazaa mein cactus ke lehjey ki nermahat thi
mausam apne rang mein faiz ka missraah tha

Dua ke be-awaz, ulohi lamhon mein
woh lamhaa bhi kitna dilkashh lamha tha

Nanhi larki,
Sahil ke itne nazdeek,
Rait se apna ghar na bana,
Koi sarkash mauj idhar ayi, to
Tere ghar ki bunyadein tak beh jayen gi,
Aur phir un ki yaad mein tu,
Saari umar udaas rahe gi..

Aaney wali ruton ke anchal mein
Koi saa’at saeed kya ho gi

Raat ke wakt rang kya pehnoon
Roshni ki kuleed kya hogi

Jabke baadal ki aut laazim ho
Janti hoon, ke deed kya hogi

Zard mausam ki khushk tehni se
Konplon ki umeed kya hogi

Woh to khushboo hai, hawaon main bikhar jaae ga
Maslaa to phool ka hai phool kidar jaae ga

Hum tou samjhe the ke ik zakhm hai bhar jaae ga
Kya khabar the keh rag e jaan main utar jaae ga

Ajnabi logon mein ho tum aur itni door ho,
Aik uljhan si raha karti hai rozaana humain..

Kya kya na khawb hijar ke mausam mein kho gaye,
Hum jagte rahe they magar bakht so gaye,

Us ne peyaam bheje to raste mein reh gaye,
Hum ne jo khat likhe woh hawaa burd ho gaye,

Agar ban mein rehna mukadar hai,
Aur yeh aik teh-shuda amar bhi hai,
Ke har ban mein bas bherriye muntazir hain mere,
Tou yeh sochti hoon,
Ke is soorat-e-haal mein,
Kyon na phir,
Apni marzi ke jungle mein ja basoon…

Waqt ke sath anaasar bhi rahe sazish mein,
Jal gaye pairr kabhi dhoop kabhi barish mein,

Woh tou ik saada-o-kam shauq ka talib nikla,
Hum ne naahiq hi ganwaya usey aarayesh mein,
