chand sitaron se kya puchhun kab din mere phirte hain

chand sitaron se kya puchhun kab din mere phirte hain
wo to bichaare khud hain bhikari dere dere phirte hain

jin galiyon mein hum ne sukh ki sej pe raaten kati thin
un galiyon mein byakul ho kar sanjh sawere phirte hain

rup-sarup ki jot jagana us nagri mein jokham hai
chaaron khunt bagule ban kar ghor andhere phirte hain

jin ke shyam-baran sae mein mera man sustaya tha
ab tak aankhon ke aage wo baal ghanere phirte hain

koi hamein bhi ye samjha do un par dil kyun rijh gaya
dekhi chitwan banki chhab wale bahtere phirte hain

ek din us ne nain mila ke sharma ke mukh moda tha
tab se sundar sundar sapne man ko ghere phirte hain

us nagri ke bagh aur man ki yaro laila nyari hai
panchhi apne sar pe utha kar apne basere phirte hain

log to daman si lete hain jaise ho ji lete hain
'abid' hum diwane hain jo baal bikhere phirte hain
