wo koi aur na tha chand Khushk patte the
shajar se tut k jo fasl-e-gul pe roye the

abhi abhi tumhain socha to kuch na yad aya
abhi abhi to ham ek-dusare se bichre the

tumhare bad chaman par jab ik nazar dali
kali kali main Khizan k chirag jalate the

Itna dushwar nahin maut ko taley rakhna
Sar jo kat jaye to dastar sambhaley rakhna

Chot khana, magar is tarah ke lodhey uthey
Zulmat gham isi tarey se ujahely rakhna

Apne ehbaab ko seeney se lagaye phira
Aik khanjar bhi jaib mein daley rakhna

Ik sehmi sehmi si aahat hai, ik mehka mehka saya hai
Ehsaas ki is tanhai mein yeh raat gaye kon aya hai

Aye shaam alam kuch tu hi bata, yeh dhang tujhe kyon bhaya hai
Woh meri khoj mein nikla tha aur tujh ko dhoond ke aya hai

Har musarat se sargarani hai
Kya yehi aalim jawani hai
Aa tujhe aik raaz batlaaon
Mein bhi fani hon, Tu bhi fani hai

Na shaaor mein jawani, na khayal mein rawani
Koi sun ke kya karega meri dukh bhari kahani

Na zawaal nagehani, Na arooj jaawdani
Meri zindagi ka unwan, Fakt aik lafz “Faani”

Mein tujhe ko bhool chuka, Lekin aik umar ke baad
Tera kheyal kya tha ke chott ubhar aayi…

Ye Kia Ke Ishq Karoon Paas-e-Aabroo Na Karoon
Mein Tujh Ko Kho Ke, Khuda Ki Bhi Justuju Na Karoon

Mein Intezaar-e-Tuluu-e-Seher Mein Jeeta Hun
Mein Apna Chaak-e-Girebaan Kubhi Raffu Na Karoon

Itna Dushwar Nahi Maut ko Taaley Rakhna
Sar Jo kat Jaaye To Dastaar Sambhale Rakhna,

Chot khana, Magar Is Tarah K Lodhey Uthey
Zulmat Gham Isi Tarey se Ujahely Rakhna

Apne Ahbaab ko Seeney Se Lagaye Phirna
Aik Khanjar Bhi Jaib Mein Daley Rakhna,

Dil mein hum aik hi jazbe ko samoyen kese,
Ab tujhe paa ke yeh uljhan hai ke khoye kese,

Zehen chhalni jo kiya hai, to yeh majboori hai,
Jitne kaante hain, woh talwon mein piroyen kese,

Waqt ik pal ko jo ruk jaye to ehsaan is ka,
Chand yaadain mere dil mein se guzarna chahain..
