Dil ko gham-e-hayaat gavaara hai in dinon,
Pehle jo dard tha wohi chaara hai in dinon,

Har sail-e-ashk saahil-e-taskeen hai aaj kal,
Daryaa ki mauj mauj kinaara hai in dinon,

Ussay kaho milne ki ab dua na kare,
Guzar gaye hain jo lamhe unhe haraa na kare,

Mujhe bhi khawb ke sehraa main ab nahin rehna,
Ussay kaho ke khawbon se ab wafaa na kare,

Agar mile to khuloos-o-wafa sath ho uss ke,
Woh darmiyaan main koi maslaa anaa na kare,

Tumhari anjuman se uth kar deewane kahan jate,
Jo wabasta huye tum se woh afsaane kahan jate,

Nikal kar dair o kaaba se agar milta na maikhana,
To thukraye huye insaan khuda jane kahan jate,

Yeh mojza bhi mohabbat kabhi dikhaye mujhe,
Ke sang tujh pe giray aur zakham aye mujhe,

Woh mera dost hai saray jahan ko hai maloom,
Daghaa kare woh kisi se to sharam aaye mujhe,

Mujh pe tawajjoh hai sari aafaat ki,
Koi to kashish hai meri zaat main..

naye kapre badal kar jaun kahan aur bal banaun kis k liye
wo shakhs to shahar hi chor gaya ab khak uraun kis k liye

jis dhup ki dil ko thandak thi wo dhup usi k sath gai
in jalti bujhti galiyon main ab khak uraun kis k liye

Apni dhun mein rehta hoon
Mein bhi tere jesa hoon

Oo pichli rut ke sathi
Mein bhi tere jesa hoon

Teri gali mein sara din
Dukh ke kankar chunta hoon

Mera diya jalaye kon
Mein tera khali kamra hoon

Teri nigaah ke jadu bikharte jate hain
Jo zakhm dil ko miley woh bharte jate hain

Tere bagher woh din bhi guzar gaye akhir
Tere bagher yeh din bhi guzarte jate hain

Liye chalo mujhe darya-e-shauk ki maujo
Ke hamsafar tou mere paar utarte jate hain

Kya lage raat ke phir dil mein samaya koi
Raat bhar phirta hai is sheher mein saya koi

Fikr yeh thi ke shab e hijar kattey gi kyun kar
Lutff yeh hai ke humain yaad na aaya koi

Dard kam hone laga aao ke kuch raat kate
Gham ki miaad badha jaao ke kuch raat kate

Hijr mein aah-o-baka sa kuhan hai lekin
Aaj yeh rasm hi dohrao ke kuch raat kate

Yun to tum roshni qalb-o-nazar ho lekin
Aaj who mojezah dikhlao ke kuch raat kate
