merii jo maaniye to muhabbat nah keejiye
apne sukoon-e-dil se adaavat nah keejiye

main jaantaa hun baaz na aayegaa ishq se
is naa muraad dil ko naseehat na keejiye

rusvaa kahiin na kar de zamaanaa ye aapko
is darja mujh ghariib se ulfat nah keejiye

dil men tha aapke jo aakhon nah kah diyaa
"izhaare iltifaat kee zehmat nah keejiye"

maasoomon, bebason va ghariibon ki laashon par
taameer apne ghar ki imaarat na keejiye


 


ban jaate hain kabhii kabhii mahlon men makbare
daulat hii sirf dekh ke nisbat nah keejiye

dukh jaaye dil kisii kaa hasiin aapkiii bane
aise kabhii kisii se zaraafat na keejiye

jo ho gayaa khataa to mire dil ki kyaa khataa
phir teer chhoriye ke shikaayat nah keejiye

mar jaaye nah khushii se voh qadmon par aapke
'ulfat' par aaj itni i'naayat nah keejiye
