aah jo dil se nikali jaegi0
aaj aaraish-e-gesu-e-dota hoti hai0
aankhen mujhe talwon se wo malne nahin dete3
apne pahlu se wo ghairon ko utha hi na sake0
bahut raha hai kabhi lutf-e-yar hum par bhi2
be-takalluf bosa-e-zulf-e-chalipa lijiye0
charkh se kuchh umid thi hi nahin3
dard to maujud hai dil mein dawa ho ya na ho0
dasht-e-ghurbat hai alalat bhi hai tanhai bhi0
dil mera jis se bahalta koi aisa na mila3
dil-e-mayus mein wo shorishen barpa nahin hotin0
duniya mein hun duniya ka talabgar nahin hun3
ek bosa dijiye mera iman lijiye0
falsafi ko bahs ke andar khuda milta nahin0
ghamza nahin hota ki ishaara nahin hota3
hangama hai kyun barpa thodi si jo pi li hai3
har ek ye kahta hai ab kar-e-din to kuchh bhi nahin0
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
ishq-e-but mein kufr ka mujhko adab karna pada0
jab yas hui to aahon ne sine se nikalna chhod diya0
jahan mein 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 mein bahut kami hai2
khatm kiya saba ne raqs gul pe nisar ho chuki2
khuda ali-gadh ki madrase ko tamam amraaz se shifa de0
khushi hai sab ko ki operation mein 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
meri taqdir muafiq na thi tadbir ke sath0
mil gaya shara se sharab ka rang0
na bahte ashk to tasir mein 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 mein tabiat kaisi2
sadiyon philosophy ki chunan aur chunin rahi0
sans lete hue bhi darta hun2
shekh ne naqus ke sur mein jo khud hi tan li2
tariq-e-ishq mein mujhko koi kaamil nahin milta0
teri zulfon mein dil uljha hua hai0
ummid tuti hui hai meri jo dil mera tha wo mar chuka hai0
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
yun meri taba se hote hain maani paida0
zid hai unhen pura mera arman na karenge0
