Mareez-e-mohabbat unhee’n ka fasaana
sunaata raha dam nikalate-nikalate
magar ziqr-e-shaam-e-alam jab bhi aayaa
chiraag-e-sehar bujh gaya jalte-jalte
iraada tha tarq-e-mohabbat ka lekin
fareb-e-tabassum mein phir aa gaye hum
abhi khaake thokar sambhalne na paaye
ki phir khaaee thokar sambhalte-sambhalte
unhein khat mein likha tha dil muztarib hai
jawaab unn ka aayaa mohabbat na karte
tumhein dil lagaane ko kisne kaha tha
behal jaayega dil bahalte-bahalte
wo mehamaan rahe bhi to kab tak hamaare
huee shammaa gul aur doobe sitaare
“Qamar” iss qadar unn ko jaldi thi ghar ki
wo ghar chal diye chaandni dhalte-dhalte.
