Raqeeb

Qismat Kai raqeeb
Sab bas gaye ik shehar mai
Jahan chandi mela hota tha
Aur andherei ka pehra hota tha
Par hawain khub chalti thien
Jaise paigham lati houn
Dusre paar se kisi thehrao ka
Dhalta Suraj bas dhalta rehta
Aur chand ko zang lag gaya tha
Par sitare khud roshan thai
Jaise shamyane khud roshan houn
Sham hoti ya raat hoti
Wo qismat Kai raqeeb
Mehfil se bach kar, konon Mai ja chupte thai
Hum jante thai sab raste
Sab deewaron se mulaqat thi
Sab andhero ka pata tha
Ik raqeeb tha uska, dusra mera chehra

Visaal

Har uruj mai ik zawal hai
Is mai tera mera visaal hai
Raat koo uth’ta ik vabaal hai
Subh saaya hai aur jaal hai
Tanhai k agai tamana bemisaal hai
Paton k agai zewar il malal hai
Sanate hain aur khamoshi hai
Tu ne pucha nahi sangdil
Ay najumi bata tera kia haal hai
