Raat

saanson ki aahat se
iss thartharahat se
kab tak me darta firoon

aatish ki raunak se
sooraj ki lau se
kab tak me chipta firoon

wo mujhse roothi hai
kis dil se tooti hai
iss ko bayaan bhi kare

aankhein mila ke to
koshish bahut karli
wo mujhko samajh na sake

wo mera aaquib ho
wo mera manzar
haan wo hai mera aasmaan

mere zehan pe hai
yaad zubaani hai
haan wo jo meri dastaan

kitaabon pe likhi
hui iss kahaani se
kyun hoon na me roobaroo

matlab ke qalmo
ko padh kar bhi kyun na
main matlab inka samjhoon

wo hi ibaadat hai
jo meri taaqat
haan wo hai mera hi khuda

wo meri aadat hai
wo meri fursat
hai kyun fir wo mujhse juda

ye raat kyun mumkin nahin
