1.Bahut dino mein mohabbat ko yeh hua maloom, ki tere hizr (Separation) mein jo guzri, vo raat raat hui.

2. Ek muddat se teri yaad bhi na aaye hamen, aur hum bhool gaye hon tujhe, aisa bhi nahi.

3. Garaz (In Short) ke kaat diye zindagi ke din ae dost, vo teri yaad mein ho ya tujhe bhulaane mein.

4. Faza tabassum-e-subhe bahar thi lekin, pahunch ke manzil-e-jaana pe aankh bhar aaye.

5. Hamse kya ho saka mohabbat mein, khair tumne to bewafaayi ki.

6. Hazaar baar zamaana idhar se guzra hai, nayee nayee si hai ter rahguzar phir bhi.

7. Maut ka bhi koi ilaaj ho shaayad, zindagi ka koi ilaaj nahi.

8. Koi aaya na aayega lekin, kya karen gar  na intezar  karen

9. Na koi vaada, na koi yakeen, na koi ummeed, magar hamein to tera intezaar karna tha.

10. Tabiyat jab apni ghabrati hai sumsaan raaton mein
Hum aise mein teri yaadon ki chaadar taan lete hain.

11. Tum mukhatib hi ho, kareeb hi ho, tum ko dekhen ki tumse baat karen.

12. Thi yun to shaame hizr, magar pichli raat ko woh dard utha Firaaq, ke main muskura diya.

13. Meherbaani (condescending attitude, out of pity) ko mohobbat nahi kehte hain ae dost, aah mujhse woh teri ranjish-e-beja (Bina kaaran chidhna, bekaar ka zhagada) bhi nahi.
