Muskan banaye rakho to sab saath hai Ghalib,

Warna aasuon ko to aankhon me bhi panah nahi milti..

Chod do ab usse wafa ki umeed Ghalib,

Jo rula skta hai wo bhula bhi skta hai..

Meherbaan ho ke bula lo mujhe chaho jis waqt..

Main gaya waqt nahi hoon ki phir aa bhi na sakoon..

Hum to fanna ho gaye unki aakhain dekh kar, Ghalib..

Naa jane wo aaina kaise dekhte hoge..!!
