hazaaron khuwahishain eisee ke har khuwahish pe dam nikle
bohot nikle mere armaan lekin phir bhee kam nikle

nikalna khuld se aadam ka sunte aye hain lekin
bohot be_aabru hokar tere kooche se ham nikle

mohabbat mein naheen hai farq jeene aur marne kaa
usee ko dekh kar jeete hain jis kaafir pe dam nikle

Khuda ke waastey parda na kaabey se uthaa zaalim
kaheen eisa na ho yahan bhee wohe kafir sanam nikle

kahaan maikhaney ka darwaza ‘Ghalib’ aur kahan waaiz
par itana jaante hain kal wo jchahta tha ke hum nikle
