shama ki tarah shab-e-gham mein pighalte rahiye

shama ki tarah shab-e-gham mein pighalte rahiye
subh ho jaegi julte hain to jalte rahiye
waqt chalta hai udata hua lamhat ki gard
pairahan fikr ka har rose badalte rahiye
aaina samne aaega to sach bolega
aap chehre jo badalte hain badalte rahiye
aai manzil to qadam aap hi ruk jaenge
zist ko rah-e-safar jaan ke chalte rahiye
subh ho jaegi hath aa na sakega mahtab
aap agar khwab mein chalte hain to chalte rahiye
ahd-e-imroz ho ya wada-e-farda 'manzur'
tutne wale khilaune hain bahalte rahiye
