Ye jo zindagi ki kitaab hai
Ye kitaab bhi kya kitaab hai

Kahin ik hasseen sa khwab hai
Kahin jaan leva azaab hai

Kahin aansu'on ki hai daastan
Kahin muskurahaton ka byaan hai

Kai chehrey iss mein chupey hue
Ik ajeeb sa ye naqaab hai

Kahin kho diya kahin paa liya
Kahin ro liya kahin ga liya

Kahin cheen leti hai her khushi
Kahin meherban behesaab hai

kahin chaa'on kahin dhoop hai
Kahin or hi iska koi roop hai

Kahin barkaton ki hein baarishein
Kahin tishnagi behesaab hai.
