Hamary paao’n mein tum ne zanjeer-e-wafa daali,

Tumhary haath se kyun rishta-e-mehr-o-karam choota. . !
Hum cheen laingy tum se ye shaan-e-be-niazi,

Tum maangty phiro gay, apna ghuroor hum se. . !
Ho umr-e-khizar bhi to kahaingy ba-wakt-e-marg

Hum kia kar rahy yahan, abhi aaye abhi chalay. . !
Haan! nahi teri rafaqat ki zarurat mujh ko

Meri monas, meri humdum, meri tanhai hai. !
Hum ‘Sana’ manzilain paa hi laity agar

Humsafar raah-guzar se jo darta nahi. . !
Honay ko un se sainkarro’n batain hui’n magar

Jis baat ka gila tha, wohi baat rah gaee. !
Hum ne bana liya hai naya phir se aashiya’n

Jao ye baat phir kisi toofan se se kaho. . !
Hum na hoty to kisi aur k charchay hoty,

Khalqat-e-duniya tou kehny ko fasanay mangay. . !
Hum jis pe marr rahy hain, wo hai baat hi kuch aur

Aalam mein tujh se laakh sahi, tu magar kahan?
Hum ne ishq gunah se bartar jana tha.

Aur dil per ye pehla pathar afsos ka hai. !
Ham kaj-adaa charagh. . k jab bhi hawa chali

Taaqo’n ko chorr kar sar-e-deewar aa gaye. . !
Haaye! ab bhool gaya rang-e-hina bhi tera.

Khat bhi kabhi khoon se tehreer hua karty thy. . !
Hum hi mein na thi koi baat jo yaad na tum ko aa sakay

Tum ne humain bhula diya, hum na tumhain bhula sakay. . !
Har lafz tery jism ki khushbu mein dhula hai

Ye tarz, ye andaz-e-sukhan hum se chala hai. . !
Humain bhi yaad rakhna jab likho tareekh gulshan ki.

K hum ne bhi lutaya hai chaman mein aashiya’n apna. . !
Wabasta meri yaad se kuch talkhi’an bhi thee’n

Acha kiya jo mujh ko faramosh kar diya. . !
Hai inteha-e-yaas bhi ik ibtada-e-shauq.

Phir aa gaye wahin pe, chalay thy jahan se hum. . !
Har daaman-e-wafa se lipat’ta mein kis liye?

Aisa tou be-anaa mera dewana-pan na tha. . !
Hum tujhy bhool k khush baithay hain

Hum sa be-dard koi kia ho ga. . . ?
Hazaar khauf hon lekin zuban ho dil ki rafiq
Yehi raha hai azal se qalandaro’n ka tareeq. . !
