===================
Kabhi to khul ke baras
"Abre-e-meharban" ki tarah
Meraa Wazuud hai
Jalte hue makaan ki tarah......
Kabhii to soch
Ke Woh shaks,
kis kadar tha buland
Jo Bichh gaya tere kadmo mey
Aasmaa ki tarah........
Main ik  Khwaab sahi
Aap ki amanat hu
Mujhe Sambhal ke rakhiyega
Jism-o-jaan ki tarah........
Bulaa rahaa hai mujhe
Phir kisi badan ka basant
Guzar na jaaye ye rut bhi
kahin Khizaa ki tarah.....
