dil mein unki yaadon ke jab diye jalate hain

dil mein un ki yaadon ke jab diye jalate hain
daman-e-takhayyul par phul muskuraate hain
tum shikast-e-dil par kyon is qadar pareshan ho
aainon ka kya wo to yun hi tut jate hain
aap se to qurbat mein fasle rahe qaem
log to qarib aa kar rah bhul jate hain
raat yun guzarti hai kashmakash ke maron ki
ek diya jalate hain ek diya bujhate hain
jab nigah padti hai zindagi ke chehre par
aankhen dabdabaati hain hont thartharaate hain
yaad se muzayyan hai aaj bhi dil-e-'sumbul'
log bite lamhon ko kis tarah bhulate hain
