chaa.Ndanii chhat pe chal rahii hogii
ab akelii Tahal rahii hogii

phir meraa zikr aa gayaa hogaa
vo barf-sii pighal rahii hogii

kal kaa sapanaa bahut suhaanaa thaa
ye udaasii na kal rahii hogii

sochataa huu.N ki band kamare me.n
ek shama-sii jal rahii hogii

tere gahano.n sii khan_khanaatii thii
baajare kii fasal rahii hogii

jin havaao.n ne tujh ko dularaayaa
un me.n merii Gazal rahii hogii

  ho gayi hai peer parwat si
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
ho gayi hai peer parwat si, pighalni chahiye
is himalay se koi, ganga nikalni chahiye

aaj yah deewar, pardo ki tarah, hilne lagi
shart lekin, thhi ki ye, buniyad hilni chahiye

sirf hangama, khada karna, mera maksad nahi
saari koshish, hai ki ye, soorat badalni chahiye

mere seene mein nahi, to tere seene mein sahi
ho kahi bhi aag lekin, aag jalni chahiye
		 
 
  mat kaho akaash mein kuhara ghana hai
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
mat kaho akaash mein kuhara ghana hai
yah kisi ki wyaktigat alochna hai

surya hamne bhi nahi dekha subah se
kya karoge surya ko kya dekhna hai

rakt varsho.n se naso.n mein khaulta hai
aap kahte hain kchhanik uttejna hai
		 
 
  aaj sadko per likhe hain
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
aaj sadko per likhe hain, saikdo naare na dekh
per andhera dekh tu, akaash ke taare na dekh

ek dariya hai yaha per, door tak faila hua
aaj aapne bajuo.n ko, dekh patwaare na dekh

ye dhundhalka hai nazar ka, mahaj tu maayus hai
rozno ko dekh, dewaron mein, dewaarein na dekh

		 
 
  jaa tere swapn bade hoN (kawita)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
jaa tere swapn bade hoN.
bhaawna ke god se utarkar 
jald prithwi per chalna seekhein.
chaaNd taaro.n si aprapya uNchaiyo.n ke liye
roothna machalna seekhein.
hasein
muskarayein
gayein.
her diye ki roshni dekhkar lalchayein.
haath jalayein.
apne pairon per khade hoN.
jaa tere swapn bade hoN.
