mein ne samjhaa tha ke tu hai to darakhshan hai hayat
tera gham hai to gham-e-deher ka jhagra kyaa hai?
teri surat se hai aalam mein baharon ko sabaat
teri aankhon ke sivaa duniya mein rakha kyaa hai?
tu jo mil jaaye to taqdeer nigoon ho jaaye
yun na tha – mein ne faqat chaha tha yun ho jaye
aur bhi dukh hain zamanay mein muhabbat ke siva
rahatein aur bhi hain visl ki rahat ke sivaa

Mujh se pehli si muhabbat meray mehboob na maang.

    i think the poem ure talking about is “hum ke thehray ajnabi itnee mulaqaaton ke baad”. the Tina Sani rendition of that is awesome.
