Itne Bhi Tou Wo Khafaa Nahi Thay

Itne Bhi Tou Wo Khafaa Nahi Thay
Jaisay Kubhi Aashna Nahi Thay

Maana Ke Behem Kahan Thay Aisay
Per Yun Bhi Judaa Judaa Nahi Thay

Thi Jitni Bisaat, Ki Parastish
Tum Bhi Tou Koi Khudaa Nahi Thay

Had Hoti Hai Tanz Ki Bhi Aakhir
Ham Tere Nahi Thay, Jaa Nahi Thay

Kis Kis Se Nibhaatay Rafaaqat
Hum Loog Ke Bewafa Nahi Thay

Rukhsat Howa Wo Tou Mein Ne Dekha
Phool Itnay Bhi Khushnuma Nahi Thay

Thay Yun Tou Hum Oski Anjuman Mein
Koi Hamain Dekhta, Nahi Thay

Ye Jo Sargashta Se Phirtay Hain Kitaabon Waalay

Ye Jo Sargashta Se Phirtay Hain Kitaabon Waalay
In Se Mat Mil Ke Inhain Rog Hain Khwaabon Waalay

Ab Meh-o-Saal Ki Mohlat Nahi Milnay Wali
Aa Chukay Ab Tou Shab-o-Roz Azaabon Waalay

Ab Tou Sab Dashna-o-Khanjar Ki Zabaan Boltay Hain
Ab Kahaan Loog Mohabbat Ke Nisaabon Waalay

Jo Dilon Per Hee Kabhi Naqab Zani Kartay Thay
Ab Gharon Tak Chalay Aaye Wo Naqaabon Waalay

Zindah Rehnay Ki Tamanna Ho Tou Ho Jaatay Hain
Faakhtaaon Ke Bhi Kirdaar Aqaabon Waalay

Payaam Aaye Hain Os Yaar-e-Bewafa Ke Mujhe

Payaam Aaye Hain Os Yaar-e-Bewafa Ke Mujhe
Jisay Qaraar Na Aaya Kaheen Bhula Ke Mujhe

Judaayiaan Hon Tou Aisi Ke Umer Bhar Na Milain
Faraib Do Tou Zara Silsilay Barha Ke Mujhe

Nashay Se Kam Tou Nahi Yaad-e-Yaar Ka Aalam
Ke Le Urra Hai Koi Dosh Per Hawa Ke Mujhe

Mein Khud Ko Bhool Chuka Tha Magar Jahan Waalay
Udaas Chorh Gaye Aaina Dikha Ke Mujhe

Tumhaaray Baam Se Ab Kam Nahi Rifat-e-Daar
Jo Dekhna Ho Tou Dekho Nazar Utha Ke Mujhe

Khinchi Howi Hai Mere Aansooun Mein Ek Tasveer
“Faraz” Dekh Raha Hai Wo Muskura Ke Mujhe

Woh dushman-e-jaan, jaan se pyara bhi kabhi tha,

Woh dushman-e-jaan, jaan se pyara bhi kabhi tha,
Ab kiss se kahen koi hamara bhi kabhi tha,

Utra hai rag-o-pey main to dil katt sa geya hai,
Yeh zeher-e-judaayi ke gawaara bhi kabhi tha,

Har dost jahan abar-e-gurezaan ki tarah hai,
Yeh sheher kabhi sheher hamara bhi kabhi tha,

Titlii ke taaqub mein koi phool sa bacha,
Aesa hi koi khawb hamara bhi kabhi tha,

Ab agley zamaney ke milain log to poochain,
Jo haal hamara hai, tumhara bhi kabhi tha,
