yun hi rakkhoge imtihan mein kya

yun hi rakkhoge imtihan mein kya
nahin aaegi jaan jaan mein kya

kyun sada ka nahin jawab aata
koi rahta nahin makan mein kya

ek zamana hai ru-ba-ru mere
tum na aaoge darmiyan mein kya

wo jo qisse dilon ke andar hain
wo bhi laoge darmiyan mein kya

kis qadar talkhiyan hain lahje mein
zahr bote ho tum zaban mein kya

dil ko shikwa nahin koi tum se
hum ne rahna nahin jahan mein kya

wo jo ek lafz e'tibar ka tha
ab nahin hai wo darmiyan mein kya

mere khwabon ke jo parinde the
hain abhi tak teri aman mein kya

ab to ye bhi nahin khayal aata
chhod aae the is jahan mein kya

ye bakheda jo zindagi ka hai
chhod dun us ko darmiyan mein kya

chand wade the chand dawe the
aur rakha tha dastan mein kya

jaane wo dil tha ya diya koi
raat jalta tha shama-dan mein kya
