इस मंज़िल पर बैठे देर हुई
फ़िर राह बना एक और नयी
माना है सब कुछ पास यहाँ
पर ख़ोज नयी मंज़िल का निशां
एक ख़्वाब नया फ़िर और सजा
एक ख़्वाब नया फ़िर और सजा

Below lines are from his ready to be printed book - आ जी लें जरा
दिन कम हैं जब इस ज़िन्दगी में
क्यूँ ना झूमें हर पल खुशी में
पंख ख़्वाबों को अपने लगा
चल ग़म को भी दे दें मज़ा
आ जी लें जरा, आ जी लें जरा

जब कभी झूठ की बस्ती में, सच को तड़पते देखा है
तब मैंने अपने भीतर किसी,बच्चे को सिसकते देखा है
अपने घर की चारदिवारी में, अब लिहाफ में भी सिहरन होती है
जिस दिन से किसी को ग़ुर्बत में, सड़कों पर ठिठुरते देखा है
