Ab kis se kahen or kon sune jo haal tumhare baad huwa

Is dil ki jheel si aankhon mein ik khuwab bohot barbad huwa

Ye hijar hawa bhi dushman hay us naam ke saare rangon ki

Wo naam jo mere honton per khushbu ki tarah aabad huwa

Us sheher ke kitne chehre thay kuch yaad nahi sab bhool gaye

Ik shakhs kitabon jesa tha wo shakhs zabani yaad huwa

Wo sab jhoote qasmein wadey thay dil jin mein khush ho jata tha

Ab is se farq nahi parta na-shaad huwa ya shaad huwa

Be-naam staish rehti thi in gehri sanwli aankhon mein

Aisa to kabhi socha bhi na tha dil ab jitna be-daad huwa…
