Wakt wo mujh per kathan guzry hain sari umer mein

Ik teray aaney se pehlay, ik teray janay k baad. . !
Wo baat saray fasaanay mein jiska zikr na tha,

Wo baat un ko boht nagawaar guzri hai. . !
Wo dil nawaz hai lekin nazar shanaas nahi’n

Mera ilaaj mery charagar kay paas nahi’n. . !
Wo khaar khaar hai shaakh-e-gulaab ki manid

Mein zakhm zakhm hoon phir bhi galay lagaun usey..!
Wohi kaarwa’n, wohi rastay, wohi zindagi, wohi marhalay

Magar apny apny maqaam per kabhi tum nahi, kabhi hum nahi. . !
Wo kon hain jinhai’n tauba ki mil gai fursat

Humain gunah bhi karny ko zindagi kam hai. . !
Weeran hai mae-kada, kham-o-saghir udaas hain

Tum kia gaye kay rooth gaye din bahaar kay. . !
Wohi kahi’n bhi gaya, lota tou mery paas aya. .

Bus yehi baat hai achi mery harjaai ki. . !
Wo eyadat k liye aaye hain, lo aur sahi. .

Aaj hi khoobi-e-taqdeer se haal acha hai. . !
Wahan rahy tou kisi ne bhi hans k baat na ki. .

Chalay watan se tou sab yaar hath milanay lagy. . !
Wahdan bhi aaye, saleb-gar bhi, saleb per hoon

Ye sheher ik roz phir se youm-e-hisaab mangay. !
Wa’iz se ‘Faraz’ apni bani hai na banay gi. .

Hum aur tarha kay hain, jabnab aur tarha kay. . !
Waa-e-nadani k wakt-e-marg ye saabit hua. .

Khuwab tha jo kuch dekha, jo suna afsana tha. . !
Ab k de wo dard k mein ro’un tamaam umer. .

Ab k laga wo zakhm k jeena mahaal ho. . !
Hamari taraf ab wo kam dekhtay hain. .

Wo nazrain nahi, jinko hum dekhtay hain. . !
Tumhain bhi dekh k hum zindagi k sehra mein. .

Khilay huay hain kisi zakhm-e-aarzu ki tarha. . !
Hum rooh-e-safar hain, humain naamo’n se na pehchaan

Kal aur kisi naam se aa jaingy hum log. . !
Hai dil k liye mout, masheeno’n ki hakumat!

Ehsaas-e-murawwat ko kuchal daity hain aalaat!
Zeenay pe rakh gaya koi tehni gulaab ki. .

Aisay diya kisi ne sandesa bahaar ka. . !
Saray parind so gaye, khuwab nagar mein kho gaye, ,

Ows mein bheegta raha, raat ko baagh mein koi. . !
