raat ka nam sawera hi sahi


raat kā naam saverā hī sahī
aap kahte haiñ to aisā hī sahī

kyā burā.ī hai agar dekh leñ ham
zindagī ek tamāshā hī sahī

kuchh to kāñdhoñ pe liye haiñ ham log
apne armānoñ kā lāsha hī sahī

pīchhe haTnā hameñ manzūr nahīñ
sāmne aag kā dariyā hī sahī

kyā zarūrī hai ki maiñ naam bhī luuñ
merā dushman koī apnā hī sahī

aa.ina dekh ke Dar jaatā huuñ
aa.ina merā shanāsā hī sahī

merā qad aap se ūñchā hai bahut
maiñ 'hafīz' aap kā saayā hī sahī

raat ka nam sawera hi sahi
aap kahte hain to aisa hi sahi

kya burai hai agar dekh len hum
zindagi ek tamasha hi sahi

kuchh to kandhon pe liye hain hum log
apne armanon ka lasha hi sahi

pichhe haTna hamein manzur nahin
samne aag ka dariya hi sahi

kya zaruri hai ki main nam bhi lun
mera dushman koi apna hi sahi

aaina dekh ke Dar jata hun
aaina mera shanasa hi sahi

mera qad aap se uncha hai bahut
main 'hafiz' aap ka saya hi sahi
