kitni pi kaise kaTi raat mujhe hosh nahi

kitni pi kaise kaTi raat mujhe hosh nahi
raat ke saath gai baat mujhe hosh nahi

mujh ko ye bhi nahin maaluum ki jaana hai kahaN
thaam le koi meraa haath mujhe hosh nahi

aaNsuon aur sharaabon men guzar hai ab to
main ne kab dekhi thi barasaat mujhe hosh nahi

jaane kyaa TuTaa hai paimaana ki dil hai meraa
bikhare bikhare hain Khayaalaat mujhe hosh nahi

donon jahan teri mohabbat men haar ke

donon jahan teri mohabbat men haar ke
wo ja raha hai koi shab-e-gham guzar ke

viran hai mai-kada KHum o saghar udas hain
tum kya gae ki ruTh gae din bahaar ke

ek fursat-e-gunah mili wo bhi chaar din
dekhe hain humne hausle parwardigar ke

duniya ne teri yaad se begana kar diya
tujhse bhi dil-fareb hain gham rozgar ke

bhule se muskura to diye the wo aaj faiz
mat puchh walwale dil-e-na-karda-kar ke

hath Khaali hain tere shahar se jate jate

hath Khaali hain tere shahar se jate jate
jaan hoti to meri jaan luTate jate

ab to har hath ka patthar hamen pahchanta hai
umr guzri hai tere shahr men aate jate

ab ke mayus hua yaron ko ruKHsat kar ke
ja rahe the to koi zaKHm lagate jate

rengne ki bhi ijazat nahin hum ko warna
hum jidhar jate nae phul khilate jate

main to jalte hue sahraon ka ek patthar tha
tum to dariya the meri pyas bujhate jate

mujhko rone ka saliqa bhi nahin hai shayad
log hanste hain mujhe dekh ke aate jate

humse pahle bhi musafir kai guzre honge
kam se kam rah ke patthar to haTate jate

dil-girafta hi sahi bazm saja li jae

dil-girafta hi sahi bazm saja li jae
yaad-e-jaanan se koi sham na Khaali jae

rafta rafta yahi zindan men badal jate hain
ab kisi shahr ki buniyaad na Dali jae

mushaf-e-ruKH hai kisi ka ki bayaz-e-hafiz
aise chehre se kabhi fal nikali jae

wo murawwat se mila hai to jhuka dun gardan
mere dushman ka koi war na Khaali jae

be-nawa shahr ka saya hai mere dil pe faraaz
kis tarah se meri aashufta-KHayali jae

der lagi aane men tumko shukr hai phir bhi aae to

der lagi aane men tumko shukr hai phir bhi aae to
aas ne dil ka sath na chhoDa waise hum ghabrae to

shafaq dhanak mahtab ghaTaen tare naghme bijli phool
is daman men kya kya kuchh hai daman hath men aae to

chahat ke badle men hum bech den apni marzi tak
koi mile to dil ka gahak koi hamen apnae to

suni-sunai baat nahin ye apne upar biti hai
phul nikalte hain sholon se chahat aag lagae to

jhuT hai sab tariKH hamesha apne ko dohraati hai
achchha mera KHwab-e-jawani thoDa sa dohrae to

nadani aur majburi men yaro kuchh to farq karo
ek bebas insan kare kya TuT ke dil aa jae to

baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi

baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi
jaisi ab hai teri mahfil kabhi aisi to na thi

le gaya chhin ke kaun aaj tera sabr o qarar
be-qarari tujhe ai dil kabhi aisi to na thi

uski aankhon ne KHuda jaane kiya kya jadu
ki tabiat meri mail kabhi aisi to na thi

aks-e-ruKHsar ne kis ke hai tujhe chamkaya
tab tujh men mah-e-kaamil kabhi aisi to na thi

ab ki jo rah-e-mohabbat men uThai taklif
saKHt hoti hamen manzil kabhi aisi to na thi

pa-e-kuban koi zindan men naya hai majnun
aati aawaz-e-salasil kabhi aisi to na thi

nigah-e-yar ko ab kyun hai taghaful ai dil
wo tere haal se ghafil kabhi aisi to na thi

chashm-e-qatil meri dushman thi hamesha lekin
jaisi ab ho gai qatil kabhi aisi to na thi

kya sabab tu jo bigaDta hai zafar se har bar
KHu teri hur-shamail kabhi aisi to na thi

ek pal men ek sadi ka maza humse puchhiye

ek pal men ek sadi ka maza humse puchhiye
do din ki zindagi ka maza humse puchhiye

bhule hain rafta rafta unhen muddaton men hum
qiston men KHud-kushi ka maza humse puchhiye

aaghaz-e-ashiqi ka maza aap jaaniye
anjam-e-ashiqi ka maza humse puchhiye

jalte diyon men jalte gharon jaisi zau kahan
sarkar raushni ka maza humse puchhiye

wo jaan hi gae ki hamen un se pyar hai
aankhon ki muKHbiri ka maza humse puchhiye

hansne ka shauq hum ko bhi tha aap ki tarah
hansiye magar hansi ka maza humse puchhiye

hum tauba kar ke mar gae be-maut ai KHumar
tauhin-e-mai-kashi ka maza humse puchhiye

ye samundar hai kinare hi kinare jao

ye samundar hai kinare hi kinare jao
ishq har shaKHs ke bas ka nahin pyare jao

yun to maqtal men tamashai bahut aate hain
aao us waqt ki jis waqt pukare jao

dil ki bazi lage phir jaan ki bazi lag jae
ishq men haar ke baiTho nahin haare jao

kaam ban jae agar zulf-e-junun ban jae
is liye usko sanwaro ki sanware jao

koi rasta koi manzil ise dushwar nahin
jis jagah chaho mohabbat ke sahaare jao

hum to miTTi se ugaenge mohabbat ke gulab
tum agar toDne jate ho sitare jao

Dubna hoga agar Dubna taqdir men hai
chahe kashti pe raho chahe kinare jao

tum hi socho bhala ye shauq koi shauq hua
aaj unchai pe baiTho kal utare jao

maut se khel ke karte ho mohabbat aajiz
mujhko Dar hai kahin be-maut na mare jao
