khayal -o-khuab howi hain muhoobateen kaysee,
lahoo main nach rahi hain pay wahas kaysee,

na shab ko chand hi acha na din ko mayra acha,
ya hum pay bahot rahi hain kayamat kaysee,

hawa kay dosah per rakhay howay charag hain hum,
jo bujh gaya to hawa say shikayt kaysee,

jo baykhaber koi guzra to ya sada di hay,
main sung raha hoon mujh per enayteen kaysee,

nahi kah husan hi tayrenngooyoon main taq nahi,
jiwan bhi khal raha hay siyasateen kaysee,

na sahayban-e-jiwan hain na ahal kashaf-o-kamal,
humary aahad main ayeen kitafishayeen kaysee,

ya dur-e-bay hazaan hay bacha rakhoo khud ko,
yahan sadakateen kaysee kamatyeen kaysee,
