Dare kyooN mera qaatil kya rahega uskee gardan par
Wo KHooN, jo chashm-e-tar se 'umr bhar yooN dam_ba_dam nikle

Nikalna KHuld se aadam ka sunte aayaiN haiN lekin
Bohot be_aabru hokar tere kooche se ham nikle

Bharam khul jaaye zaalim tere qaamat ki daraazee ka
Agar is turra-e-pur_pech-o-KHam ka pech-o-KHam nikle

Magar likhwaaye koee usko KHat, to hamse likhawaaye
Huee subah aur ghar se kaan par rakhkar qalam nikle

Usne sukoot-e-shab mein bhi apna payaam rakh diya
Hijr ki raat baam per maah-e-tamaam rakh diya

Aamad-e-dost ki naveed koo-e-wafa mein garm thi
Meine bhi ik charagh sa dil sar-e-shaam rakh diya

Shiddat-e-tishnagi mein bhi ghairat-e-maikashi rahi
Usne jo phair li nazar meine bhi jaam rakh di

Usne nazar nazar mein he aisay bhalay sukhan kahey
Meine to uske paaon mein saara kalaam rakh diya

Dekho woh merey khwaab thay dekho yeh mere zakhm hain
Meine to sab hisaab-e-jaan barsar-e-aam rakh diya

Ab ke ham bichhDe to shaayad kabhi Khaabon men milen

ab ke ham bichhDe to shaayad kabhi Khaabon men milen
jis tarah suukhe hue phuul kitaabon men milen

DhuuNDh ujaDe hue logon men vafaa ke motii
ye Khazaane tujhe mumkin hai Kharaabon men milen

tuu Khudaa hai na meraa ishq farishton jaisaa
donon insaaN hain to kyon itane hijaabon men milen

Gam-e-duniyaa bhii Gam-e-yaar men shaamil kar lo
nashaa baDataa hai sharaben jo sharaabon men milen

aaj ham daar pe khenche gaye jin baaton par
kyaa ajab kal vo zamaane ko nisaabon men milen

Umr jalwo main basar ho ye zaroori to nahi

umr jalwo main basar ho ye zaroori to nahi
har shab-e-Gam ki sahar ho ye zaroori to nahi

chashm-e-saaqi se pio ya lab-e-saghar se pio
beKhudi aatho peher ho ye zaroori to nahi

neend to dard k bister pay bhi aasakti hai
unki aaghosh main sar ho ye zaroori to nahi

shaikh karta to hai Masjid main Kkhuda ko Sajdah
uskay Sajdoo main asar ho ye zaroori to nahi

sab ki nazroo main ho saaqi ye zaroori hai magar
sab pay saqi ki nazar ho ye zaroori to nahi
