Da Sta pa Stargo ke by Khatir Afridi
Da sta pa stargo ke ba sa pate shi
Raqeeba yaar ka me pa khula pate shi
Yaw zale negh pade lar tersha ashna
Che de kaga waga kaata pate shi
Parde mazdoor sahr wakhti paseegi
Da shugeero main auda pate shi
Afsoos che sta pa khyal ba sa khakarama
Dagha armaan ba me pa zara pate shi
Wastaya tal da yaar tarkha "Khatira"
Che pa kitaab ke de khwaga pate shi
