ham jisey sochtey rahe aur bas sochtey he rahe
firk-e-rasa hamari aur ham, us tak ja na sakey
wo kitna door hae ya gaya hae rasta bhool
ya rah main itni mushkileen ke manzil tak aa na sakey
kya hae itna pyar us se ke khud ko ham bhola bethey
hameen zindage tu mili, per zindage ko ham pa na sakey
zakhm judae ke itney miley, rooh tak ho gae zakhmi
khud he zakhmon ko seetey rahe,maseha ko bula na sakey
shama-e-zindage Rabi ke jal jal ke khtam honey ko hae
shama ke tarha jal kar bhe parwaney ko ham pa na sakey
