Wo aaj bhi sotay mein dassney aaye ga. .
Wo janta hai k khilta hai mujh pe zeher ka rung. . !
Wahan rahy tou kisi ne bhi hans k baat na ki. .

Chalay watan se tou sab yaar hath milanay lagy. .
Waa-e-nakami, mata-e-karwaa’n jata raha. .

Karwaa’n k dil se ehsas-e-ziya’n jata raha. . !
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. . !
Chalo Acha Hua Eid Ab ke Bhi tanha Guzri,

Galay Mil ke Bohat Rote Jo Tum aa Jaate…
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. . !
Honay lagy hain ghar mein bhi sauday khuloos k.

Jo cheiz karobaar hai bazaar tak rahy. . !
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. . !
Hum ehl-e-qafas tanha bhi nahi, har roz naseem-e-subha-e-watan

Yaado’n se mo’atar aati hai, ashko’n se munawwar jaati hai. . !
Hum sehel-talab kon se farhaad they lekin.

Ab sheher mein tere, koi hum sa kahan?
Hum ne khud se bhi chupaya aur saray sheher ko.

Teray janay ki khabar deewar-o-dar karty rahy. . !
Hum tou samjhy thy k ik zakhm hai bhar jaye ga

Kia khabar thi k rag-e-jaa’n mein uter jaye ga. . !
Hum se pehly bhi ye martaba-e-daar na tha

Ishq ruswa tha magr yun sar-e-bazaar na tha!
