kabhi kabhi meray dil mein khiyal ataa hay

keh zindagi teri zulfon ki narm chaaon mein
guzarnay paati to shaadaab ho bhi sakti thi
yeh teeragi jo meri zeest ka muqaddar hai
teri nazar ki shuaon mein kho bhi sakti the

ajab na tha keh main begaana-e-alam ho kar
tieri jamaal ki raanaaiyon mein kho rahta
tera gudaaz badan teri neembaaz aankhein
inhe haseen fasaanon mein mehav ho rahta

pukaarti mujhe jab talkhiyan zamaney ki
tieray labon se halaavat ke ghoont pee letaa
hayaat cheekhti phirti barhana sar or main
ghaneri zulfon ke saaye mein chup ke jee letaa

magar ye ho na sakaa aur ab ye aalam hai
key tu nahin tera Gham , teri justajoo bhi nahi
guzar rahi hai kuch is tarah zindagi jaisey
isey kisi ke saharay ki aarzoo bhi nahin

zamaaney bhar ke dukhoon ko lagaa chukaa hoon galey
guzar raha houn kuch anjaani rah-guzaaron sey
muheeb saaye meri simt barhtey aate hain
hayaat-o-maut ke purhaul kharzaaron sey

na koi jaadaa, na manzil, na roshni ka suraagh
bhatak rahi hai Khalaaon mein zindagii meri
inhi khilaaon mein rah jaaoungaa kabhi kho kar
main janta houn meri hum nafas magar yunhi

kabhi kabhi mere dil meiN Khayaal aataa hai

aj tere liye ek mazhar-e-ulfat hi sahi
tujhko is vaadi-e-rangeen se aqeedat hi sahi

meri mehboob kahin aur mila kar mujhse

bazm-e-shahi me gareebon ka guzar, kya maani?
sabt jis raah pe ho satavat-e-shaahi ke nishan
us pe ulfat bhari rooho ka safar kya maani?

meri mehboob pas-e-parda-e-tash heer-e-wafa
toone satavat ke nishano ko to dekha hota
murda shahon ke maqabir se behalne waali
apne taarek makanon ko to dekha hota

anginat logon ne duniya me mohabbat ki hai
kaun kehta hai ke sadiq na the jazbe unke
lekin unke liye tash heer ka samaan nahin
kyonki woh log bhi apni hi tarah muflis the

yeh imarat-o-maqabir, yeh faseele, yeh hisar
mutal-kul-hukm shehenshahon ki azmat ke sutoon
daaman-e-dehar pe us rang ki gulkari hai
jisme shaamil hai tere aur mere ajdad ka khoon

meri mehboob! unhe bhi to mohabbat hogi
jinki sannai ne baqshi hai isse shakl-e-jameel
unke pyarron ke maqabir rahe be-naam-o-namood
aaj tak un pe jalai na kisi ne kindeel

yeh chamanzaar, yeh jamna ka kinara, yeh mahal
yeh munakkash dar-o-deewar, yeh mehraab, yeh taaq
ek shehenshah ne daulat ka sahara lekar
hum gareebon ke mohabbat ka udaya hai mazak

meri mehboob kahin aur mila kar mujh se
