jawaab...

Baad muddat ke, uthra hai nasha mera

Tu yaar hai toh, fir mujhe sharaab na de

Ab jaa ke jaagi hai yeh ankhein meri

Fir inn ankhon ko nayaa khwab na de

 

Mohabbat ne kiya hai har shaks ko ruswaa

ae dil, tu apni sharm ko naqaab na de

 

Padha hai humne bhi ulfat ke qisse sabhi

Tu meri daanish ko, koii nayaa kitaab na de

 

Tabaah jo ho gaya hai bazm-e-barqat mein

Uss namuraad ko nehmaton ka hisaab na de

 

Meri tishnagi ne tark raah-e-talab kar di

Fir khushk umeedon ko tu aab na de

 

Tujhme josh-e-tamanna hai, mujhme gurur-e-tajurba

‘Sifar’ jab kehta hai kuchh, palat jawaab na de

 

- Sifar
