    samundar ne ye ḳhālī sīpiyāñ

    kaise ugal diiñ

    aa ke sāhil par

    maiñ pahle bhī kahā kartā thā

    tujh ko yaad ho shāyad

    ki terī ruuh ke gahre samundar meñ

    merā dil ek siipī hai

    magar maiñ ne kabhī terī mohabbat ko numā.ish meñ nahīñ rakkhā

    maiñ un logoñ se chiḌtā thā

    jo afsāne kahā karte haiñ yāroñ se mohabbat ke

    magar vaise bhī duniyā meñ kisī kaun suntā hai

    sunātā hai koī jab apnī bāteñ

    sunñe vaalī apnī bāteñ yaad karte haiñ

    magar ye kaisī rāteñ haiñ

    ki aksar sote sote chauñk uThtā huuñ

    mujhe to niiñd bhī ik qarz chashm-e-ambar hai

    maiñ sotā jāgtā rahtā huuñ

    ik aise musāfir tarah

    jis ko kisī chhoTe se station pe

    gaaḌī se utartā ho

    tere hilte hue hāthoñ se

    ye kaisī havā aa.ī

    mirī jaañ tujh se ruḳhsat ho ke

    maiñ kitnā akelā thā

    aur duniyā so rahī thī

    us dil tarah

    jis ne abhī ronā na sīkhā ho

    koī koñpal

    kabhī zor-e-numū meñ

    sañg-basta ḳhaak se laḌtī huī

    bāhar nikaltī hai

    ki jaise shoḳh bachche

    haath aur dāman chhuḌā kar

    ghar se bāhar bhaag jaa.eñ

    aur guzargāhoñ pe so jaa.eñ

    guzar-gāhoñ se bachchoñ ko uThā kar laao

    aur gahvāra-e-jāñ meñ sulā do

    vo jāgeñge to un ke ḳhvāb puure ho chuke hoñge

    so āḳhir yuuñ huā

    ummīd shāḳhoñ pe aise barg-o-bār aa.e

    mirī jaañ

    terā milnā tishnagī ke dasht meñ

    vo āb-e-tāza thā

    jo shabnam bhī hai dariyā bhī hai

    aur ruuh meñ ġham ho to aañsū bhī

    mujhe aañsū nahīñ milte nahīñ milte nahīñ milte

    vo shab bhī kaisī shab thī

    jis naqd-e-sub.h ab tak qarz hai

    jo mujh se pūchhtā hai

    ab mehnat ko kahāñ le jāoge

    kis dil meñ rakhoge

    maiñ chup thā

    bhī chup thī

    aur ḳhāmoshī ke lamhoñ ke

    guzarte qāfile

    sāñsoñ āvāz-e-jaras rahe the

    ek manzil taraf

    jo nisf jannat nisf dozaḳh thī

    maiñ kitnā sañg-dil huuñ

    jo terī jannat pe ḳhush hotā nahīñ

    dozaḳh pe hañstā huuñ

    samundar ne ye KHali sipiyan

    kaise ugal din

    aa ke sahil par

    main pahle bhi kaha karta tha

    tujh ko yaad ho shayad

    ki teri ruh ke gahre samundar mein

    mera dil ek sipi hai

    magar main ne kabhi teri mohabbat ko numaish mein nahin rakkha

    main un logon se chiDta tha

    jo afsane kaha karte hain yaron se mohabbat ke

    magar waise bhi duniya mein kisi ki kaun sunta hai

    sunata hai koi jab apni baaten

    sunne wali apni baaten yaad karte hain

    magar ye kaisi raaten hain

    ki aksar sote sote chaunk uThta hun

    mujhe to nind bhi ek qarz chashm-e-ambar hai

    main sota jagta rahta hun

    ek aise musafir ki tarah

    jis ko kisi chhoTe se station pe

    gaDi se utarta ho

    tere hilte hue hathon se

    ye kaisi hawa aai

    meri jaan tujh se ruKHsat ho ke

    main kitna akela tha

    aur duniya so rahi thi

    us dil ki tarah

    jis ne abhi rona na sikha ho

    koi konpal

    kabhi zor-e-numu mein

    sang-basta KHak se laDti hui

    bahar nikalti hai

    ki jaise shoKH bachche

    hath aur daman chhuDa kar

    ghar se bahar bhag jaen

    aur guzargahon pe so jaen

    guzar-gahon se bachchon ko uTha kar lao

    aur gahwara-e-jaan mein sula do

    wo jagenge to un ke KHwab pure ho chuke honge

    so aaKHir yun hua

    ummid ki shaKHon pe aise barg-o-bar aae

    meri jaan

    tera milna tishnagi ke dasht mein

    wo aab-e-taza tha

    jo shabnam bhi hai dariya bhi hai

    aur ruh mein gham ho to aansu bhi

    mujhe aansu nahin milte nahin milte nahin milte

    wo shab bhi kaisi shab thi

    jis ka naqd-e-subh ab tak qarz hai

    jo mujh se puchhta hai

    ab mehnat ko kahan le jaoge

    kis dil mein rakhoge

    main chup tha

    tu bhi chup thi

    aur KHamoshi ke lamhon ke

    guzarte qafile

    sanson ki aawaz-e-jaras ja rahe the

    ek manzil ki taraf

    jo nisf jannat nisf dozaKH thi

    main kitna sang-dil hun

    jo teri jannat pe KHush hota nahin

    dozaKH pe hansta hun
