yeh jo dard ka darakht hai, kabhi sukhata nahi hai.

yeh jo dard ka darakht hai,
kabhi sukhata nahi hai.

main har pal mein muskurata rehta hoon
fir bhi yeh udas chehare kamal ki tarah khilata nahi hai.

raat ki bheegi-bheegi chaton ki tarah
meri aankhon mein bhi yeh sawan rukta nahi hai.

aur

Romil, kuch dino ke baad tumko bhi poojenge log
har kisi ko ishq mein itna uccha auda milta nahi hai.

ab kya soche kya accha, kya bura hoga

ab kya soche kya accha, kya bura hoga
zindagi kam hai, khuda se ab samna hoga.

sar bahut jhuka chuka, ab haaton mein pathar hoga
zindagi kam hai, khuda se ab samna hoga.

parwah nahi, yeh dil kaun si saza ka haqdar hoga
zindagi kam hai, khuda se ab samna hoga.

aur

maut meri yeh baat shaabit kar degi
hasrha zindagi se haare hue insaan ka kya hoga
zindagi kam hai, khuda se ab samna hoga.

mujhe maloom hai woh kya soch raha hoga

mujhe maloom hai woh kya soch raha hoga
woh pita ke aashirwad bina kaise doli mein vida hoga

aur

itne saal beet gaye, woh milane tak na aa saki
kya kabhi usne mere khaton ko nahi pada hoga.

aur

kya karogi uski khabar rakhkar
kya karogi tum uski khabar rakhkar
tasveer to hai nahi, bas tere naam ke saath kisi andheri kothari mein pada hoga.

aur

sar se paav tak woh chand sa khila hoga
na jaane woh raat kaisi hogi jab woh mera hoga.

main is dunia ko samaj chuka hoon

main is dunia ko samaj chuka hoon
ishq jo kar chuka hoon

tum to yadoon ke bharose chhod kar chal diye
main tere laut aane ka aitbaar jo kar chuka hoon

aur main bolta raha aur woh sunta raha hai
na uske pass jawab hai aur na mere sawal kam honge, yeh samaj chuka hoon 

aur

is tarah uljha raha hoon nafraton mein
ki 16 june ko pita ne saath chhoda diya, yeh bhi mehsus nahi kar saka hoon

Ishq ka ab woh zamana nahi raha

Ishq ka ab woh zamana nahi raha 
Woh hai mera magar diwana nahi raha
*
Uske khokhalepan ko zaara gaur se dekho
Nazaron mein ab woh ishq-e-dariya nahi raha
*
Yeh kisne cheen li muskaan-e-baarish usse
Khushiyon mein bhi sukun-e-chain nahi raha
*
Romil, Meri zubaan pe shikwa-e-sanam-e-sitam tha, hai aur hamesha rahega
Nazdikiyan chahe jitni bhi badh jaye magar woh junoon-e-ishq nahi raha.

Purani hi sahi, magar tasveer sacchi hai

Purani hi sahi, magar tasveer sacchi hai
Shayad yeh bhai-bhehan ko fir bachpan ke dino ki yaad dilaye.

Maa ki shawl hai ise sambhal kar rakho
Shayad yeh thandak ke dino mein maa ki goad ka ehsaas dilaye.

aur

Mat fhado in khaton ko Romil
Shayad yeh ishq mein fir rulane ke kaam aaye.

aur

Is dupatte, Is salwar-suit, Is saree ko mat fhekana tum Romil
Shayad yeh aajkal ki haseenao ko bhartiyein tehzeeb, bhartiyein sanskar seekhaye.

Bas itni si dua karo...

Romil, bas itni si dua karo ki umeed na toote meri
hokar majboor dil se baahon mein aakar gire woh meri 
Keemat chahe fir jo ho...
