Tera qurb hai na baada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Tera qurb hai na baada hai, kya kiya jaaye,
Phir aaj dukh bhi zeyadaa hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Kuch apne dost bhi turkish-badosh phirte hain,
Kuch apna dil bhi kushaada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Na un se tark-e-taluq ki baat kar paayen,
Na humdumi ka iraada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Woh meherbaan hai, magar dil ki hirss* bhi kam to ho,
Talab karam se zeyada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Humain bhi arz-e-tamanna ka dhangg nahin aata,
Mizaaj-e-yaar bhi saada hai, kya kiya jaaye,

Salook-e-yaar se dil doobne laga hai Faraz,
Magar yeh mehfil-e-aaada hai, kya kiya jaaye..

(baada:libaas, clothes)(hirss:lalach, greed)
