Beetey lamhe kyon har pal yaad aate hai
yaad aa aa kar phir humein kyon is tarah sataate hai
kyon ek insaan ek aisi chaap chod jaata hai
jo chah kar bhi yeh dil mita nahi paata hai
kyon yeh aansu thamne ka naam nahi lete
us ajnabi ki raah ko takte hai rehte
kyon yeh dil bas ek zid kare baitha hai
us sangdil ke pyar ki aas lagaye baitha hai
kyon yeh mausam itna haseen ho chala hai
pal pal saath bitaye lamho ka saaz ched chala hai
kyon is dard se har pal meri jaan chali jaati hai
har dhadkan ek hi fariyaad kare jaati hai
kyon pyar mein dard ka saath zaroor milta hai
ankhein band to jannat, khulne par khaakh hi milta hai
kyon zameer kisi ka awaaz nahi deta
kisi ke matam pe khushiya hai saja deta
kyon tanhaiyan is mod pe raas nahi aati
ujaale ke lauv se andheron mein hai le aati
kyon is dil ke tootne par koi awaaz nahi hai
ya zamana shayad aaj behra ho chala hai
kyon is dil ki dastak aaj ansuni ho gayi
woh chalta chala gaya, aur main yahi reh gayi
