Most famous poem
Koi deewana kahta hai, koi pagal samajhta hai,
Magar dharti ki bechaini ko bas badal samajhta hai.
Mai tujhse dur kaisa hu, tu mujhse dur kaisi hai,
Ye tera dil samajhta hai ya mera dil samajta hai.
Mohhabat ek ehsaaso ki pawan si kahani hai,
Kabhi kabira deewana tha, kabhi meera diwani hai.
Yaha sab log kahte hai, meri ankhon me aasu hai,
Jo tu samjhe to moti hai, jo na samjhe to pani hai.
Samandar peer ke andar hai lekin ro nahi sakta,
Yah aasu pyar ka moti hai, isko kho nahi sakta.
Meri chahat ko dulhan tu bana lena magar sun le,
Jo mera ho nhi paya, wo tera ho nahi sakta.
