1. Ishq ne Ghalib nikamma kar diya, Warna ham bhi aadmi thay kaam ke
2. Hazaron khwahishen aisi ki har khwahish pe dam nikle, Bahut nikle mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle.
3. Ishq par zor nahin, hai ye vo atish Ghalib, Ki lagae na lage, aur bujhaye na bane
4. Na tha kuch to khuda tha, kuch na hota to khuda hota, Duboya mujh ko hone ne, na hota main to kya hota.
5. Hum ko unse wafah ki hai umeed, Jo nahin jante vafa kya hai
6. Aah ko chahiye ik umr asar hone tak, Kaun jeeta hai teru zulf ke sar hone tak
7. Dil hi toh hai na sang-o-khisht dard se bhar na aaye kyun, Royenge hum hazar baar, koi hamen satae kyun.
8. Ishq se tabiyat ne ziist ka mazaa paaya, Dard ki dawa paayi, dard-e-be-dava paaya
9. Hum ne maana ki taghaful na karoge lekin, Khaak ho jayenge hum tum ko khabar hote tak
10. Meri qismat men gham gar itna tha, Dil bhi ya rab, kayi diye hote.
