Yaad aane lage Chachaa Ghalib
Yaa Ilaahi ye Maazra kya hain.
Taadtaa hoon her ek Haseena ko
Verna aankhon ka Faayda kya huaa.

***

Kapron ki aabotaab dikhaane mein rahgaye
Kuch khoobsurti ko lubhaane main rahgaye
Murge ki taang sab khaagaye shaadi mein
Ham doston se haath milaane mein rahgaye.

Mehboob vaada kerke bhi na aaya doston
Kya kya na kiya hamne uske pyaar mein doston
Murge Churaa ke laaye the chaar ' Jafer doston
Do aarzoo mein katgaye do intezaar mein.
