aankhen mujhe talwon se wo malne nahin dete3
bahut raha hai kabhi lutf-e-yar hum par bhi2
charkh se kuchh umid thi hi nahin3
dasht-e-ghurbat hai alalat bhi hai tanhai bhi0
dil mera jis se bahalta koi aisa na mila3
dil-e-mayus men wo shorishen barpa nahin hotin0
duniya men hun duniya ka talabgar nahin hun3
ghamza nahin hota ki ishaara nahin hota3
hangama hai kyun barpa thodi si jo pi li hai3
har qadam kahta hai tu aaya hai jaane ke liye0
hawa-e-shab bhi hai ambar-afshan uruj bhi hai mah-e-mubin ka2
hun main parwana magar shama to ho raat to ho0
jahan men haal mera is qadar zabun hua1
jalwa ayan hai qudrat-e-parwardigar ka0
jo tumhaare lab-e-jaan-bakhsh ka shaida hoga0
kahan wo ab lutf-e-bahami hai mohabbaton men bahut kami hai2
khatm kiya saba ne raqs gul pe nisar ho chuki2
khushi hai sab ko ki operation men khub nishtar ye chal raha hai0
khushi kya ho jo meri baat wo but man jata hai0
kya jaaniye sayyad the haq aagah kahan tak0
mani ko bhula deti hai surat hai to ye hai0
na bahte ashk to tasir men siwa hote2
na ruh-e-mazhab na qalb-e-arif na shairana zaban baqi2
nai tahzib se saqi ne aisi garm-joshi ki0
phir gai aap ki do din men tabiat kaisi2
sadiyon philosophy ki chunan aur chunin rahi0
sans lete hue bhi darta hun2
shekh ne naqus ke sur men jo khud hi tan li2
wo hawa na rahi wo chaman na raha wo gali na rahi wo hasin na rahe2
ye maujuda tariqe rahi-e-mulk-e-adam honge0
ye sust hai to phir kya wo tez hai to phir kya0
