ek adhuri mulakaat

Muqaddar, yeh kiss mod pe le aayii hume

Ke rooh ko rahat aaj gawaaraa na hua

Zindagi mere paas mehak rahii thi aaj

Aarzoo ko hosh ka magar sahara na hua

 

Labon se alfaaz udhthe rahe titliyon ki tarah

Wo kar rahii thi bepaanah baatein apni

Reh reh kar, jehan me ik khayal aane laga

Pahele kabhi kyun, haasil yeh nazara na hua

 

Wo meri har baat par beriyaa khilkilati rahii

Main uski hayaa dekh kar pigalta rahaa

Waqt ke fisalte reth ko rokkna bhi tha

Jhijhakte dil se magar koi ishaara na hua

 

Uske chehre par bhikre woh zulfon ki sivatein

Meri umr-e-tamam ki uljhan suljha rahii thii

Laakh uksaaya dil ne, ki rokk lu isse

Hausle se, yeh jurrat magar dobara na hua

 

Mauj ki tarah, wo guzar gayii saamne se mere

Main dooba rahaa uski khayaalon me der tak

Muflisii ke bhanwar me yun phansta gayaa

Umeed ke tinke ko bhi kinaara na hua
