• Phool Sa Kuch

    Phool Sa Kuch Qalaam Or Sahi;
    Ik Ghazal Us Kay Naam Or Sahi;

    Us Ki Zulfein Bahut Ghaneri Hain;
    Ek Shab Ka Qayam Or Sahi;

    Zindagi Kay Udaas Qissey Hain;
    Ek Ladki Ka Naam Or Sahi;

    Kursiyon Ko Sunaiye Ghazlein;
    Qatal Ki Ek Sham Or Sahi;

    Kapkapati Hai Raat Seeney Mein;
    Zehar Ka Ek Jaam Or Sahi!

  • Koi Naa Jaan Saka

    Koi Naa Jaan Saka Woh Kahan Se Aaya Tha;
    Aur Us Ne Dhoop Se Baadal Ko Kyon Milaya Tha;

    Yeh Baat Shayad Logon Ko Pasand Aayi Nahin;
    Makaa'n Chota Tha Lekin Bohat Sajaya Tha;

    Woh Ab Wahan Hai Jahan Raste Nahin Jate;
    Main Jis Ke Sath Yahan Pichle Saal Aya Tha;

    Suna Hai Us Pe Chehekne Lage Hain Parindey Bhi;
    Woh Aik Pau'daa Jo Hum Ne Kabhi Lagaya Tha;

    Chiragh Doob Gaye Kapkapaye Honton Par;
    Kisi Ka Hath Hamare Labo'n Tak Aya Tha;

    Badan Ko Chorr Ke Jana Hai Aasman Ki Taraf;
    Samundro'n Ne Humein Yeh Sabaq Parhaya Tha;

    Tamam Umar Mera Dam Isi Dhuyein Mein Ghutta;
    Woh Ik Chiragh Thaa Maine Usey Bhujaya Tha!

  • In Aankhon Se Din

    In Aankhon Se Din Raat Barsaat Hogii;
    Agar Zindagii Sarf-E-Jazbaat Hogii;

    Musaafir Ho Tum Bhii, Musaafar Hain Ham Bhii;
    Kisii Mod Par Phir Mulaaqaat Hogii;

    Sadaaon Ko Alfaaz Milne Na Paayen;
    Na Baadal Ghirenge Na Barsaat Hogii;

    Chiraagon Ko Aankhon Men Mahfuuz Rakhnaa;
    Badii Duur Tak Raat Hii Raat Hogii;

    Azal Taa Abd Tak Safar Hii Safar Hai;
    Kahiin Subah Hogii Kahiin Raat Hogii!

  • Voh Duroondon Ke

    Voh Duroondon Ke, Salaamon Ke Nagar Yaad Aaye;
    Na'atein Parhte Hue, Qasbaat Ke Ghar Yaad Aaye;

    Shaam Ke Baad Kachehri Ka Thakaa Sanaataa;
    Begunaahii Ko Adaalat Ke Hunar Yaad Aaye;

    Ghar Ki Masjid Mein Woh Nuuraani Se Chehre;
    Khaanqaahon Mein Duaaon Ke Shajar Yaad Aaye;

    Mere Seene Mein Koi Saans Chubhaa Karti Hai;
    Jaise Mazduuron Ko Pardes Mein Ghar Yaad Aaye;

    Kitne Khat Aaye Gaye, Shaakh Mein Phoolon Kii Tarah;
    Aaj Daryaa Mein Chiraagon Ke Safar Yaad Aaye!

  • Mil Bhi Jate Hain To

    Mil Bhi Jate Hain To Katara Ke Nikal Jate Hain;
    Haye Mausam Ke Tarah Dost Badal Jate Hain;

    Hum Abhi Tak Hain Giraftar-e-Muhabbat Yaroo;
    Thokaren Kha Ke Suna Tha Ki Sambhal Jate Hain;

    Ye Kabhi Apni Jafa Par Na Hua Sharminda;
    Hum Samajhate Rahe Pathar Bhi Pighal Jate Hain;

    Umr Bhar Jin Ke Vafaon Pe Bharosa Kije;
    Waqt Padane Pe Wohi Log Badal Jate Hain!
