bhali se aik shakl thi

bhalay dinoo ki bat hai

bhali se aik shakl thi 

na ye k husn tam ho

na dekhne main aam se

na yeh ke woh chale to kehkushan se rah guzar lage

magar wo saath ho to phir bhala bhala safar lagay

koi bhi rut ho us ki chub

safa ka rungorupe thi

wo garmeoo ki chaoon the

wo sardeoo ki dhoop the

na esi khushlibasian ke sadgee gila kare

na itni betakalufi k aina haya kare

na ikhtalat main wo rum k badmaza hoon khwahisheen

na is kadar supardagi ke zach karein nawazishein

so aik roz kya hoa wafa pe bahas chir gaye

mein ishq ko amar kahon woh meri zid se chir gaye

mein ishq ka aseir tha woh ishq ko qafas kahe

ke umar bhar ke sath ko badtar-az-hawas kahe

shajar-e-hijar nahein ke hum hamesh pa-bae-gill rahein

na dhor hein ke rassian gale me mustaqil rahein

me koi painting nahein ke aik hi frame mein rahon

wohi jo man ka meet ho usi ke prem mein rahon

tumhari soach jo bhi ho mein is soach ki nahein

mujhe wafa se bair hae yeh bat aaj ki nahein

na us ko mujh pe man tha na mujh ko us pe zom tha

jo ehad hi koi na ho to kya gham-e-shikastagi

so apna apna rasta hansi khushi badal diya

woh apni rah chal pari mein apni rah chal para

bhale si aik shakal thi

bhale si us ki dosti

ab us ki yad rat din

nahein magar kabhi kabhi
