mataa-e-Gair

na mu.nh chhupaa ke jiye ham na sar jhukaa ke jiye

jahaa.n jahaa.n tirii nazro.n kii os Tapkii hai

miltii hai zindagii me.n mohabbat kabhii kabhii

ye mahlo.n ye taKHto.n ye taajo.n kii duniyaa

lahu nazr de rahii hai hayaat

ye mahlo.n ye taKHto.n ye taajo.n kii duniyaa

hazaar barq gire laakh aa.ndhiyaa.n uTThe.n

dil ke mu.aamale me.n natiije kii fikr kyaa

vo afsaana jise anjaam tak laanaa na ho mumkin

tumhaaraa naam kisii ajnabii ke lab par thaa

hazaar barq gire laakh aa.ndhiyaa.n uTThe.n

kaun kahtaa hai mohabbat kii zabaa.n hotii hai
