Aawaaz aati hai kisi chor se

Ek shahad si awaaz aati hai kisi chor se,
Jane kaise chu jati hai is beja se man ko har oor se,

Jaise kashti me aati ho awaaz pani ke shor se,
Jaise koi shivale me ghnati baji ho kahin door se,

Jaise bhatakti azaan ki awaaz pakiza kar gayi ho har oor se,

Jaise subah chidiyoon ki chahat kuch keh gayi ho bade zor se,

Jaise tanhaiyaan me sargoshi kehti ho barish ke zor se,
Jaise khoyi koi roshni mil gayi ho nazroon ke pour se,

Ek shahad si awaaaz aati hai kisi chor se,
Jane kaise chu jaati hai is beja se man ko har oor se
