ek pal meN ek sadii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye
do din kii zindagii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye


 


bhuule haiN raftaa raftaa unheN mudattoN meN ham
qistoN meN Khud-kushii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye

aaGhaaz-e-aashiqii kaa mazaa aap jaaniye
anjaam-e-aashiqii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye

jalte diyoN meN jalte gharoN jaise zau kahaaN
sarkaar raushnii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye

vo jaan hii gaye ke hameN un se pyaar hai
aaNkhoN kii muKhbarii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye

haNsne kaa shauq ham ko bhii thaa aap kii tarah
haNsiye magar haNsii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye

ham taubaa kar ke mar gaye qabl-e-azal “Khumar”
tauhiin-e-maikashii kaa mazaa ham se puuchhiye
