kuchh log jo ḳhāmosh haiñ ye soch rahe haiñ

sach boleñge jab sach ke zarā daam baḌheñge

kuchh log jo KHamosh hain ye soch rahe hain

sach bolenge jab sach ke zara dam baDhenge

ek dil hai ki ujaḌ jaa.e to bastā nahīñ

ek but-ḳhāna hai ujḌe to haram hotā hai

ek dil hai ki ujaD jae to basta hi nahin

ek but-KHana hai ujDe to haram hota hai

zindagī naam isī mauj-e-mai-e-nāb hai

mai-kade se jo uThe dār-o-rasan tak pahuñche

zindagi nam isi mauj-e-mai-e-nab ka hai

mai-kade se jo uThe dar-o-rasan tak pahunche

us to ek lafz bhī ham ko nahīñ hai yaad

kal raat ek sher kahā thā jo ḳhvāb meñ

us ka to ek lafz bhi hum ko nahin hai yaad

kal raat ek sher kaha tha jo KHwab mein

pursish-e-hāl bhī itnī ki maiñ kuchh kah na sakūñ

is takalluf se karam ho to sitam hotā hai

pursish-e-haal bhi itni ki main kuchh kah na sakun

is takalluf se karam ho to sitam hota hai

mirā ḳhayāl nahīñ hai to aur kyā hogā

guzar gayā tire māthe se jo shikan tarah

mera KHayal nahin hai to aur kya hoga

guzar gaya tere mathe se jo shikan ki tarah
