Chaand tanha hai asmaan tanha

Dil mila hai kahan kahan tanha

Bujh gayi aas , chup gaya tara

Thartharata raha dhuan tanha

Zindagi kya isi ko kehte hain

Jism tanha hai aur jaan tanha

Humsafar koi gar mile bhi kahin

Dono chalte rahe.. tanha tanha

Jalti bujhti si roshani ke pare

Simta simta sa ek makaan tanha

Raah dekha karega sadiyon tak

Chhod jayenge ye jahan tanha

Ye raat ye tanhai

Ye dil ke dhadakne ki awaaz

Ye sannaata

 

Ye doobte taaron ki

Khaamosh gazalkhwani

Ye waqt ki palkon par

Soti huyi wiraani

Jazbat-e-muhabbat ki

Ye akhri angdai

Bajti hui har jaanib

Ye maut ki shehnaai

Sab tum ko bulaate hain

Pal bhar ko tum aa jao

Band hoti meri ankhon mein

Muhabbat ka

Ek Khwab saja jao

Aagaz to hota hai anjaam nahi hota

Jab meri kahaani mein wo naam nahi hota

Jab zulf ki kaalikh mein ghul jaaye koi rahi

Badnam sahi lekin gumnaam nahi hota

Has has ke jawan dil ke hum kyun na chunein tukde

Har shakhs ki qismat mein inaam nahi hota

Puchhte ho to suno kaise basar hoti hai

Raat khairat ke sadqe ki sahar hoti hai

Saans bharne ko to jeena nahi kehte ya rab

Dil hi dukhta hai na ab asteen tar hoti hai

 

Jaise jagi huyi ankhon mein chubhein kaanch ke khwab

Raat is tarah diwanon ki basar hoti hai

Mere mehboob

Jab dopahar ko

Samundar ki lehrein

Mere dil ki dhadkano se humaahang hokar uthti hain to

Aafatab ki hayaat aafri shuruaaton se mujhe

Teri judai ko bardasht karne ki kuwwat milti hai
