“Bismil e ghazal”::Kal shaam naagahaan sar e raah mil gaii mujhe
Fitane qadam qadam pe jagaatii huii ghazal
Poochhaa ki aaj paae safar kaa hai rukh kidhar
Bolii nazar jhukaa ke, lajjaatii huii ghazal:
Kahatii hoon dil kii baat jo phaelii hai shahar mein
Pardah hi uth gayaa hai to tujh se chhupaaoon kyaa
Mahboobaa jis kii hoon, miraa mahboob hai vahii
Soda hai kis dayaar kaa sar mein, bataaoon kyaa
Garamii hai bazm e sh’er mein jis kii nawaaon se
Mere khadang e naaz kaa bismil vahii to hai
Sargardaan koo ba koo hoon main jis kii talaash mein
Dilbar miraa vahii, miri manzil vahii to hai
