tum jo pal ko Thahar jaao to ye lamhe.n bhii
aanevaale lamho.n kii amaanat ban jaaye.N
tum jo Thahar jaao to ye raat, mahataab
ye sabzaa, ye gulaab aur ham dono.n ke Khvaab
sab ke sab aise mubaham ho.n ki haqiiqat ho jaaye.N
tum Thahar jaao ki unavaan kii tafasiir ho tum
tum se talKhii-e-auqaat kaa mausam badale
raat to kyaa badalegii, haaalat to kyaa badale.nge
tum jo Thahar jaao to merii zaat kaa mausam badale
mahaarbaa.N ho ke na Thaharo to phir yuu.N Thaharo
jaise pal bhar ko ko_ii Khvaab-e-tamannaa Thahare
jaise daravesh-e-madaa-nosh ke pyaale me.n kabhii
ek do pal ke liye talKhii-e-duniyaa Thahare
Thahar jaao ke madaarat maikhaane se
chalate chalate ko_ii ek-aadh subuu ho jaaye
is se pahale ke ko_ii lamhaa aa_indaa ka tiir
is tarah aaye ke pevast-e-guluu ho jaaye
