Yeh ajab qayamaten hain teri rahguzar main guzaari,
Na ho ke mar mittain hum, na ho ke jee uthain hum..

Kahan tak suney gi raat kahan tak sunayen ge hum,
Shikwey saarey sabb aaj tere rubaruu karain..

Mitt jaye gi makhlooq to insaaf karo ge,
Munsif ho agar to hashar uthaa kyon nahin dete..

Dono jahan teri mohabbat mein haar ke,
Woh jaa raha hai koi shab-e-gham guzaar ke..

Chaand nikle kisi jaanib teri zebaayi ka,
Rang badle kisi surat shab-e-tanhayi ka,

Daulat-e-lab se phir ayi khusrav-e-shirin-dahanan,
Aaj arzaan ho koi harf shanasaayi ka,

Garmi-e-rashk se har anjuman-e-gul-badanaan,
Tazkraa cherre teri pairahan-e-araayi ka,

Har haqeeqat majaaz ho jaye,
Kaafiron ki namaaz ho jaye,

Dil rahin-e-niyaz ho jaye,
Bekassi kaarsaaz ho jaye,

Minnat-e-charasaaz kaun kare,
Dard jan jaan-nawaz ho jaye,

Ishq dil main rahe to ruswa ho,
Lab pe aaye to raaz ho jaye,

Ab jo koi pooche bhi to us se kya sharaah-e-halaat kahen,
dil thehre to dard sunaayen dard thamme to baat karen,

shaam hui phir josh-e-qadah ne bazm-e-harifaan roshan ki,
ghar ko aag lagaayen ham bhi roshan apni raat kahen,

Dono jahaan teri mohabbat main haar ke,
Woh jaa raha hai koi shab-e-gham guzaar ke,

Veeran hai mai-kada khoom o saaghar udaas hain,
Tum kya gayee ke rooth gaye din bahaar ke,

Ik fursat-e-gunaah mili woh bhi chaar din,
Dekhe hain ham ne hausle parvardigaar ke,

Ab ke baras dastoor-e-sitam me kya kya baab izaad huye,
Jo qaatil the maqtool huye, jo said they ab sayyaad huye,

Pehle bhi khizaan me baagh ujrre pr yoon nahin jese ab ke baras,
Saare bootte pata pata ravish ravish barbaad huye,

Gham na kar,
Gham na kar,
