awwal to main rukta nahin aur jis se rukun main

awwal to main rukta nahin aur jis se rukun main
ta-hashr ye mumkin nahin phir us se milun mein

ye aur sunai ki meri baat to sun le
jo teri kahe aan ke us ki na sunun main

ye khub kahi dekhenge kab tak na milega
is baat pe gar chaho to ab sharm karun main

aapas mein agar charkh-o-zamin dinon ye mil jaen
to bhi na kabhi tujh se mila hun na milun main

tab nam hai 'maruf' dhara rah to sahi jab
chhati pe teri aath-pahr mung dalun main
