aisa dost chahiye jo hume apna mann sake,
humare har dukho ko jaan sake,
chal rahe ho hum tez barish mein,
phir bhi pani mein se aansuo ko pehchan sake...
jaam se kabhi itni nafrat naa karo
ki peena chaho toh kabhi pee na sako..
kisi ko bhi itna pyar na karo,
ki bichad kar jeena chaho toh jee na sako...
na kabhi muskurahat tere hoothon se dur ho,
teri har khwaish haqiqat ko manzur ho,
ho jo tu kabhi mujhse kafa,
khuda na kare mujhse kabhi aisa kasoor ho...
kabhi unki palko se izhar hoga,
dil ke kisi kone mein humare liye pyar hoga,
guzar jati hai rat unki yaad mein,
kabhi toh unko bhi humara intezar hoga..
mumkin nahi shayad kisi ko samaj pana,
samjhe bina kisi se kya dil lagana,
aasan hai kisi ko pyar karna,
bahut mushkil hai kisi ka pyar pana..
aag suraj mein hoti hai,
jalna zameen ko padta hai,
mohobat negahein karti hain,
tadapna dil ko padta hai..
bekhudi ki zindagi hum jiya nahi karte,
jam dusro se cchin kar hum piya nahi karte,
unko mohobat hai toh aakar izhar kare,
peecha hum bhi kisi ka kiya nahi karte
hum se duur jaoge kaise,
dil se hume bhulaoge kaise,
hum woh khusboo hai jo saanson mein baste hain
khud ki saanson ko ruk paoge kaise...
