Hastii apanii hubaab kii sii hai ye

Hastii Apanii Hubaab Kii Sii Hai
Ye Numaaish Saraab Kii Sii Hai
[Hubaab=bubble; Saraab=illusion, Mirage]
Naazukii Us Ke Lab Kii Kyaa Kahiye
Pankhadii Ik Gulaab Kii Sii Hai
Baar Baar Us Ke Dar Pe Jaataa Huun
Haalaat Ab Iztiraab Kii Sii Hai
[Iztiraab=anxiety]
Main Jo Bolaa Kahaa Ke Ye Aawaaz
Usii Khaaana-Kharaab Kii Sii Hai
‘Meer’ Un Niim-Baaz Aankhon Men
Saarii Mastii Sharaab Kii Sii Hai
[Niim-Baaz=half Open]
