khoobsurat jiske taur-taarike,
laal se range nakoon jiske,
teer jaisi tez nazre jiske,
reshmi kadmon ki aahat, sunke bhi rahe ansune jiske,
paon se sar tak, aan-baan jiski shaukeen chalke,
pukaar sunke jiske, dheela pad jaaye, bahadur bhi aur murdha bhi,
jab kabhi, yun hi milna ho, akele mein inse,
andheri galiyon mein, ya khule khwabon mein,
dil-chubhata yaad banke reh jaaye, anokha afsana yeh,
saalon aur milon dhoor, goonj sunayee dhe jiske,

voh chale aaye baahon mein aise,
gehri koyee neendh bulaye jaise,
daro nahin janaab,
masoom billi ki jo hum, karen taareef-daaree aise
