” Falak par nigah rakhne walon ke, kadam aksar ladkhada jate hain,

   manzil chhu lene wale bhi akhir, keemat kuch to ada kar jate hain.

   Sau baar laga le daav koi, har taraf laga le pehre bhi,

   jab chale waqt ki aandhi nayi, tinka bhi nahi bach pata hai.

   Zamane ka dastoor hi hai is kadar, koi reh jata hai khali hath,

   aur sab kuch paa kar bhi tanha, kuch log yahan reh jate hain!

          Yun to na thi kabhi dil me, khwahishein hazaaron beparwaah,

          kuch khwab kabhi bas palkon pe ik dastaq si de jate hain.

          Phir chain nahi rehta mann me, sailaab sa maano uthta hai,

          sudh kho baithe is dil ko phir, bandhan ye jag dikhlata hai.

          Bas aas liye un sapno ki, aur dua liye kuch apno ki,

          dil chal padta un rahon par, jinse baki jag darrta hai!

Yun to tanha in raaton me, in bhooli-bisri raahon me,

khud sang hi chalna seekh liya, haan tanha jeena seekh liya.

Yun to khwaabon sang yari hai, mujhe aj bhi duniya pyari hai,

hass ke rona, ro ke hassna, bhi is dil ko hai sikha diya.

Ik dard sa hai par seene me, kuch kami ho maano jeene me,

shaayad kuch apna khaas yun hi, kismat ko maine gawaa diya!

          Haan hai falak par nigah meri, kuch kar jane ki chah meri,

          ladkhadate kadmon se bhi magar, kuch jan parbat chadh jate hain.

          Haan sukh pe dukh bhari hai, kaaton sang hai nayi yaari meri,

          seene me darr lekar hi sahi, kuch jan moti chun laate hain.

          Maana darr hai, maana hu tanha, maana bikhri hai shaan meri,

          koshish karne wale hi magar, mumkin na-mumkin ko banate hain!
