*Alwida Kehte Hue Jab Maine Us Shakhs Se Pucha Ke Koi Nishani To Do,
Wo Muskurate Hue Bole Judaai Hi Kafi He Agar Yaad Kar Sako To.

*Maine tere liye hi saat rang ke sapne chune, sapne sureele sapne,
kuch hasi ke, kuch gham ke, tere sapno ke saye churaye raseele yaado ne. (Anand, 1971)

*Woh yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah, jiski zubaan urdu ki tarah,Meri shaam raat,
meri kaayanat woh yaar mera saiyan saiyyan. (Dil se, 1998)

*Hamne dekhi hai in ankho ki mehekti khushboo,
haath se choo ke inhe rishte ka ilzaam na do. (Khamoshi, 1969)

*Lakeerein hain to rehne do, Kisi ne rooth kar gusse mein shayad kheech di thi.
Unhi ko ab banao paala aur aao kabaddi khelte hain.

*Bahut khoobsurat hai har baat lekin, Agar dil bhi hota to kya baat hoti,
Likhi jaati koi dastan-e-mohabat, Ik afsane jaisi mulaqat hoti
(Masoom,1981)

*Tumhe yeh zidd thi ki hum pukare,Hume yeh umeed ki woh pukare,
Hai naam honton pe ab bhi lekin, Awaaz mei pad gayi darare.

*Ik baar to yun hoga, thoda sa sukoon hoga,
Na dil me kasak hogi, na sar me junoon hoga.

*In umr se lambi sadako ko Manzil tak pahunchte dekha nahin,
Bas daudte phirte rehete hain Humne to theherte dekha nahin.

*Mere Nazdeek Aake Dekh Mere Ehsaas Ki Shiddat deewani,
Mera Ye Dil Kitna Dhadakta Hai Tera Naam Aane Par.

*Waqt rehta nahi kahin tik kar,aadat iski bhi aadmi si hai.
