Sab kuchh hai magar dene ko paas

Sab Kuchh Hai Magar Dene Ko Kuchh Paas Nahin Hai,
Yuun Khud Ko Piya Hai Ki Hamein Pyaas Nahin Hai,
Hum Doob Gaye Jaagti Raaton Ke Bhanvar Mein,
Aur Tum Ho Ki Is Baat Ka Ehsaas Nahin Hai,

Kuch Kagazi Phoolon Se Sajaye Hain Jo Kamre,
Aangan Mein Mere Khilta ‘Amaltaas’ Nahin Hai,
Aasan Nahin Pyaar Ki Baaton Ko Bhulana,
Yeh Meri Vyatha Hai, Yeh Upanyas Nahin Hai.
