ādatan tum ne kar diye va.ade


ādatan ham ne e'tibār kiyā

aap ke ba.ad har ghaḌī ham ne


aap ke saath guzārī hai

apne maazī justujū meñ bahār


piile patte talāsh kartī hai

bhare haiñ raat ke reze kuchh aise āñkhoñ meñ


ujālā ho to ham āñkheñ jhapakte rahte haiñ

chand ummīdeñ nichoḌī thiiñ to aa.heñ Tapkīñ


dil ko pighlā.eñ to ho saktā hai sāñseñ nikleñ

der se gūñjte haiñ sannāTe


jaise ham ko pukārtā hai koī

din kuchh aise guzārtā hai koī


jaise ehsāñ utārtā hai koī

haath chhūTeñ bhī to rishte nahīñ chhoḌā karte


vaqt shāḳh se lamhe nahīñ toḌā karte

ham ne aksar tumhārī rāhoñ meñ


ruk kar apnā intizār kiyā

jab bhī ye dil udaas hotā hai


jaane kaun aas-paas hotā hai

jis āñkhoñ meñ kaTī thiiñ sadiyāñ


us ne sadiyoñ judā.ī hai

kabhī to chauñk ke dekhe koī hamārī taraf


kisī aañkh meñ ham ko bhī intizār dikhe

ḳhushbū jaise log mile afsāne meñ


ek purānā ḳhat kholā anjāne meñ

kitnī lambī ḳhāmoshī se guzrā huuñ


un se kitnā kuchh kahne koshish

ruke ruke se qadam ruk ke baar baar chale


qarār de ke tire dar se be-qarār chale

shaam se aañkh meñ namī hai


aaj phir aap kamī hai

tumhāre ḳhvāb se har shab lipaT ke sote haiñ


sazā.eñ bhej do ham ne ḳhatā.eñ bhejī haiñ

vaqt rahtā nahīñ kahīñ Tik kar


aadat is bhī aadmī hai

ye shukr hai ki mire paas terā ġham to rahā


vagarna zindagī bhar ko rulā diyā hotā

zindagī yuuñ huī basar tanhā


qāfila saath aur safar tanhā
