khamosh,
bezubaan raat.

sooni,
anjaani raahein,
tarashti, jhoojhti,
kaali raat.

khilaadi the hum kabhi,
iss jhilmilaati raat ke.
kaidi hain abb,
iss raat ke andhere mein.

na kucch aata nazar,
na kucch aata samajh.
raston ko begaana banaati hui,
sehme zehen to dastak deti hui,
ye raat.

kabhi ye andhera tha thikaana.
gum hue, khelte the iski parchai mein.

kabhi kiya karte the intezaar iske hone ka,
abb karte hain dua ke guzar jaaye ye,
raat.
