Aao mil jaao muskura ke gale

Ishq ko be-naqaaab hona tha,
Aap apna jawaab hona tha,

Masst-e-jaaam-e-sharaaab hona tha,
Be-khudd-e-izztiraab hona tha,

Teri ankhon ka kuch qasoor nahin,
Haan mujhi ko kharaab hona tha,

Aao mil jaao muskura ke gale,
Ho chuka jo itaab hona tha,

Kuchaaa-e-ishq main nikal aaya,
Ji ka khaana-kharab hona tha,

Hum ne nakaamiyon ko dhoond liya,
Aaakhrish kaamyaab hona tha,

Haaye woh lamhaaa-e-sukooon ke jisse,
Mehshhar-e-iztiraab hona tha,

Nigaaah-e-yaaar khud tarrap uthi,
Shartt-e-awwall kharaab hona tha,

Kyun na hota sitam bhi be-payan,
Karamm-e-behisaab hona tha,

Kyun nazar hairaton main doob gayi,
Maujj-e-sadd-iztiraab honaa tha,

Ho chukaa rozz-e- avvaleen hi 'jigar',
Jis ka jitna kharaab hona tha..
