koi aisa samma'a ho jaaye ki zindagi nayi kitaab ho jaaye
harek harf meri wafaa ka ba-zamaana sareaa'am ho jaaye

kisse meri ulfat ke likhe jaaye fir ek baar kuchh is taraha
ki dahliz-e-yaar bhi ho naa ho ruswaa aur mera kaam ho jaaye

harek pal jo bitaaye mene ghame-e-shab me jis taraha
tamanna hai ki is kitaab me woh roz-e-masarrat ho jaaye

chalo yuhin sahi aakhir tum mere ban hi to jaaoge kabhi
tum kabhi mauzu-e-ishq raho kabhi khullus-e-jaan ho jaaye

roshan raha har pal yeh diil tumhaare waham-e-ishq se
soch raha hoon kuchh aaram-e-qalb ho jaaye, yuhin zindagi tamam ho jaaye
