Ab ke rut badalii to Khushbuu kaa safar dekhegaa kaun


ab ke rut badalii to Khushbuu kaa safar dekhegaa kaun
zaKhm phuulo.n kii tarah mahake.nge par dekhegaa kaun

dekhanaa sab raqs-e-bismal me.n magan ho jaaye.nge
jis taraf se tiir aayegaa udhar dekhegaa kaun

vo havas ho yaa vafaa ho baat maharuumii kii hai
log to phal-phuul dekhe.nge shajar dekhegaa kaun

[maharuum=deprived; shajar=tree]

ham chiraaG-e-shab hii jab Thahare to phir kyaa sochanaa
raat thii kis kaa muqaddar aur sahar dekhegaa kaun

[chiraaG-e-shab=night lamp]

aa fasiil-e-shahar se dekhe.n Ganiim-e-shahar ko
shahar jalataa ho to tujh ko baam par dekhegaa kaun
