Mom ki tarh jalte rahe ham shahedoN ke

Rat bhar jhilmilati rahi shamm e subh
e watan

Rat bhar jagmagata raha chand taroN ka

Tishnagi thi magar

Tishnagi me bhi sar shaar the

Pyasi aankhoN ke khali katore liye

Mutazir mard o zan

mastiyaN khatm mad-hoshiyaN khatm
theeN khatm tha bankpan

raat ke jagmagaate dahektay badan

subh dam aik deewaar e gam ban gaye

khazr e alam ban gaye

raat ki shah ragoN ka uchalta lahoo

joo e khooN ban gaye

kuch imaamaan e sad makr o fan

un ki saansoN main uufee ki phankar

unke sine me nafrat ka kala dhuwaN

ik kame  gah se

phenk kar apni nok e ubaN

khoan e noor e sahar pi gaye

rat ki tachhateN haiN andhera bhi he

subah ka kuch ujala ujala bhi hai


Hat me hat do

Soo e manzil chalo

Manzilain piyar ki

Manzilain dar ki

Koo e dildar ki manzilai

Dosh par apni apni saleebeN uthaye
