Aawargi mei “mohsin” is ko b hunar jana,
Iqrar-e-wafa kerna, phir us se mukar jana

Jab khwab nahi koi, kya zindagi ka karna
Har subh ko jee uthna har raat ko mar jana

Shab bhar k thikane ko ik chatt k siwa kya hy,
Kya waqt pe ghar jana, kya dair se ghar jana,

Aisa na ho darya mei tum baar-e-garaa’n thehro,
Jab log ziada hon kashti se utar jana,

Suqraat k peene se kya mujh pe ayaa’n hota,
Khud zehr piya mei ne tab us ka asar jana,

Jab bhi nazar aao gy hum tum ko pukare’n ge,
Chaho to thehar jana chaho to guzar jana…
