Suraj, sitaare, chaand mere saath me rahe, Jab tak tumhare haath mere haath me rahe,
Shaakhon se toot jaaye wo patte nahi hain hum, Aandhi se koi kah de ki aukaat me rahe..

Teri har baat mohabbat mai gawara karke, Dil ke bazaar mai baithe hai khasaara karke,
Muntazir hoon ke sitaaro ki zara aankh lage, Chaand ko chat pe bula lunga ishara karke..

Zubaan to khol, nazar to mila, jawaab to de, Mai kitni baar luta hoon mujhe hisaab to de,
Tere badan ki likhawat mai hai utaar chadaav, Mai tujhe kaise padhunga mujhe kitaab to de..

Ek ek harf ka andaaz badal rakha hai, Aaj se humne tera naam ghazal rakha hai,
Maine shaho ki mohabbat ka bharam tod dia, Mere kamre mai bhi ek tajmahal rakha hai..

Nayi hawaaon ki sohbat bigaad deti hai, Kabtooro ko khuli chat bigaad deti hai,
Aur jo jurm karte hain itne bure nahi hote, Saza na deke adaalat bigaad deti hai..

Ban ke ik hadasa bazaar me aa jayega, Jo nahi hoga wo akhbaar me aa jayega,
Chor uchkkon ki karo kadr, ki maloom nahi,

Kaun, kab, kon si sarkaar me aa jayega

Hum ab makaan mai tala lagaane wale hain,
Pata chala hai ki mehmaan aane wale hain

Jawaniyo mai jawani ko dhool karte hain, Jo log bhool nahi karte bhool karte hain,

Agar anarkali hai sabab bagawat ka, Saleem hum teri shaertein kubool karte hain..

Afwaah thi meri tabiyaat kharab hai, logo ne pooch pooch ke bimaar kar dia
Do ghaz sahi magar ye meri milkiyat to hai, Ae Maut! tune mujhe zamidaar kar dia..

Chalte firte tume mehtaab dikhayenge tume,

Humse milna kabhi punjaab dikhayenge tume,
Chaand har chaat pe hai, suraj hai har ek aangan mai
Neend se jaago to kuch khwaab dikhayenge tume.

Log har mod pe ruk ruk ke sambhalte kyu hain,
Itna darte hain to fir ghar se nikalte kyu hain.

Na humsafar na kisi hamsheen se niklega, Hamare paav ka kaata ham hi se niklega..
Aur isi gali mai woh bhooka fakeer rehta tha, Talaash kijiyae khazana yehin se niklega

Yahin imaan likhte hai, yahin imaan padhte hain,
Hume kuch aur mat padhwao, hum Quran padhte hain,

Yahi ke saare manzar hai, yahi ke saare mausam hain,
wo andhe hai, jo in aankho me Pakisthan padhte hain..
