Haqeqat khol gai hasrat tere tark e muhabbat ki,

Tujhe to abb wo pehle se bhi barh kar yaad ate hain.
Chandani phol hawa jaam sitare khoshbo,

Zeher k naam hain sub jiss shab nahin hota koi.
Chopke chopke raat din ansu bahana yaad hai,

Hum ko abb tak ashiqi ka wo zamana yaad hai.
Ye teri yaad hai ya meri aziyat-koshi?

Ek nashtar sa rag-e-jaa’n k qareeb aaj bhi hai. !
Charagh e bazam abi jaan e anjaman na bhoja,

Ke ye bhoja to tere khado khal se bhi gae.
Chand obhare ga yakbar teri yaad k sath,

Zindagi monas o gham khawar nazar ane lagi.
Chandani raton me malom nahin muj ko adam,

Bhole bisare hoe gham kis lie yaad ate hain.
Chamak othe dar o diwar us ki amad se,

Wo admi tha magar mahtab aisa tha.
Chop k ata hai koi khowab chorane mere,

Phol har raat mehkate hain sarhane mere.
Chand jab door ofaq par doba,

Tere lehje ki thakan yaad ai.
Jane kia soch k har rah me ruk jata hon,

Uss se milne ka kisi moor pe imkan bhi nahin.
Jaise guzra hawa bhi to mere darwaze se,

Ab hawa bhi teri pael ki khanak lagti hai.
Jane wale dil ko pathar kar gae,

Phr kisi ko daikh kar dharka nahin.
Jab tak hum masroof rahe ye dunia thi sunsan,

Din dhalte hi dehan me ae kaise kaise log.
Joor ke to koe e garan the hum jo chale to jaan se guzar gae,

Raah e yaar hum ne qadam qadam tuje yaad gaar bana dia.
Sabat hoen azab wo rangeen hathelian,

Bete dinon me rang e hina le gea muje.
Rafaqato’n ki talab barh gai zamanay mein

Ab wafa se ziyada zarurat’ain aziz hain. . !
Thehre hoa kion hai mere jivan k safar main,

To aik hi pall hai to basar kion nai hota.
Ye jaisay log hain waisy nazar nahi’n aatay

Rafaqato’n mein chupi hain adawat’ain kia kia. . .
Tum bhi ho beete waqt ki manand hoo baho,

Tum ne bhi yad ana hai ana to hai nahin.
