Sundar komal sapnon ki barat guzar gai janan
dhup ankhon tak a pahunchi hai rat guzar gai janan

bhor samay tak jis ne hamain baham uljhaye rakha
wo albeli resham jaisi bat guzar gai janan

sada ki dekhi rat hamain is bar mili to chup k se
khali hath pe rakh k kya saugat guzar gai janan

kis konpal ki as main ab tak waise hi sar-sabz ho tum
ab to dhup ka mausam hai barsat guzar gai janan
log na jane kin raton ki muraden manga karte hain
apni rat to wo jo tere sath guzar gai janan
