na puchh dekh ke kitna malal hota hai

na puchh dekh ke kitna malal hota hai

jo ḳhvab dekhne valon ka haal hota hai

labon pe mohr-e-ḳhamoshi lagai jaati hai

aur is ke baad hamin se saval hota hai

jab aai sham-s-masafat to phir ye raaz khula

zara si der uruuj o zaval hota hai

har ek shaḳhs ki apni hi ek duniya hai

kahan kisi ko kisi ka ḳhayal hota hai

har ek auj-e-mohabbat pe aa nahin sakta

kisi kisi men hi aisa kamal hota hai

ruki hui huun ik aaise saval par ‘shabnam’

javab jis ka hamesha muhal hota hai
