  • Pyaar Ka Pehla Khat Likhne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai,<br/>
Naye Parindon Ko Udne Mein Waqt To Lagta Hai;<br/>
Jism Ki Baat Nahi Thi Un Ki, Dil Tak Jana Tha,<br/>
Lambi Doori Tai Karne Mein, Waqt To Lagta Hai!

  • Sari Basti Me Ye Jadoo:

    Sari Basti Mein Ye Jadoo Nazar Aaye Mujhko,
    Jo Daricha Bhi Khule Tu Nazar Aaye Mujhko;

    Sadiyon Ka Rat Jaga Meri Raaton Mein Aa Geya,
    Mein Ek Haseen Shakhs Ki Baaton Mein Aa Geya;

    Jab Tassavur Mera Chupke Se Tujhe Chu Aaye,
    Der Tak Apne Badan Se Teri Khushboo Aaye;

    Gustaakh Hawaaon Ki Shikaayat Na Kiya Kar,
    Udd Jaaye Dupatta Toh Khanak Odh Liya Kar;

    Tum Pucho Aur Main Na Bataun Aise Toh Halaat Nahi,
    Ek Zara Sa Dil Toota Hai Aur Toh Koi Baat Nahi;

    Raat Ke Sannate Mein Humne Kya-Kya Dhokhe Khaaye Hain,
    Apna Hi Dil Jab Dhadka Toh Hum Samjhe Wo Aaye Hain!
    ~ Qateel Shifai

    Dekh Mujhe To Tarq-e-Talluq Ke Baawzood;
    Woh Muskura Diya Ye Hunar Bhi Usi Ka Tha!
