Dua to jane kaun si thi,
Zehen mein nahin,
Bas itna yaad hai,
Ke do hatheliyan mili huyi thi,
Jin mein ek meri thi,
Aur ik tumhari..

Andheri raaton ke tanhaa musafiron ke liye,
Diyaa jalata hua koi saaz o rakht na tha.

Mere liye to wo khan’jar bhi phool ban ke uthaa,
Zabaan sakht thi, lehjaa magar karakht na tha.

Nam Hain Palkain Teri Ay Mouj-e-Hawa, Raat Ke Saath
Kia Tujhe Bhee Koi Yaad Aata Hai Barsaat Ke Saath ?

Roothnay Aur Manaanay Ki Hadain Milnay Lagee.n
Chasham Poshi Ke Saleeqay Thay, Shikayaat Ke Saath

Ghar Ke Mitnay Ka Gham Tou Hota Hai
Apne Malbay Pe Kon Sota Hai ????????

Khushbuein Gair Tan Se Aati Hai
Baazuoun Mein Mujhe Samota Hai

Mere Dil ! Aansuoun Se Haath Utha
Kaisi Baarish Se Zakham Dhota Hai

Shajar Ke Haath Mein Ek Zard Phool Baaqi Hai
Abhi Libaas-e-Musaafir Pe Dhool Baaqi Hai

Mere Qabeelay Mein Niklay Subhi Farokhtni
Na Koi Waada Na Koi Usool Baaqi Hai

Duroon-e-Sheher Gulaabon Ki Baa’r Khatam Howi
Kinaaray Sheher Puraani Babool Baaqi Hai

Wo Rut Bhi Aai Ke Mai Phool Ki Sahaili Huii
Mehek Mai Champa Kali, Roop Mai Chambeli Huii

Wo Sard Raat Ki Barkha Se Kiyu Na Pyaar Karun ?
Yeh Rut To Hai Mere Bachpan Ke Saath Kheli Huii

Agarche Tujh Se Bohat Ikhtilaaf Bhee Na Howa
Magar Ye Dil Teri Jaanib Se Saaf Bhee Na Howa

Taaluqaat Ke Barzakh Mein Hee Rakha Mujhko
Wo Mere Haq Mein Na Tha Aur Khilaaf Bhee Na Howa

Rung, Khushbuu Mein Agar Hal Ho Jaye
Vasl Ka Khwaab Mukammal Ho Jaye

Chaand Ka Chooma Howa Surkh Gulaab
Teetri Dekhay Tou Paagal Ho Jaye

Mein Andheron Ko Ujaalon Aisay
Teergi Aankh Ka Kaajal Ho Jaye

Najana kon sa aasaib dil mein basta hai,
Ke jo bhi thehra woh aakhir makaan chor gaya…
