GHAZAL
aab o hawa hai barsar-e-paikar kaun hai
abhi hairat ziyaada aur ujala kam rahega
abhi jo gardish-e-ayyam se mila hun main
ai shab-e-hijr ab mujhe subh-e-visal chahiye
ajnabi hairan mat hona ki dar khulta nahin
badal gaya hai sabhi kuchh us ek saat mein
bas ek rasta hai ek aawaz aur ek saya hai
charagh-e-yaad ki lau ham-safar kahan tak hai
chashm be-khwab hui shahr ki virani se
dast-e-dua ko kasa-e-sail samajhte ho
dil-e-simab-sifat phir tujhe zahmat dunga
dubne wale bhi tanha the tanha dekhne wale the
ek ghadi wasl ki be-wasl hui hai mujh mein
ghubar hoti sadi ke sahraon se ubharte hue zamane
is aalam-e-hairat-o-ibrat mein kuchh bhi to sarab nahin hota
junun tabdili-e-mausam ka taqriron ki had tak hai
kabhi mausam sath nahin dete kabhi bel munder nahin chadhti
kabhi sitare kabhi kahkashan bulata hai
kahani likhte hue dastan sunate hue
kahin tum apni qismat ka likha tabdil kar lete
kaise hangama-e-fursat mein mile hain tujhse
kis ki tahwil mein the kis ke hawale hue log
koi sachche khwab dikhata hai par jaane kaun dikhata hai
koi yaad hi rakht-e-safar thahre koi rahguzar anjaani ho
kuchh bhi tha sach ke taraf-dar hua karte the
kya bataen fasl-e-be-khwabi yahan bota hai kaun
lai mohabbat ki hai aahang sukhan-saz ka hai
lau ko chhune ki hawas mein ek chehra jal gaya
main khayal hun kisi aur ka mujhe sochta koi aur hai
main use tujhse mila deta magar dil mere
milna na milna ek bahana hai aur bas
mohlat na mili khwab ki tabir uthate
mulaqaton ka aisa silsila rakkha hai tumne
na is tarah koi aaya hai aur na aata hai
na koi nam o nasab hai na goshwara mera
phir ji uthe hain jis se wo imkan tum nahin
qurbaten hote hue bhi faslon mein qaid hain
safar ki ibtida hui ki tera dhyan aa gaya
sarasar nafa tha lekin khasara ja raha hai
tare jo kabhi ashk-fishani se nikalte
tilism-khana-e-asbab mere samne tha
tu suraj hai teri taraf dekha nahin ja sakta
tujhse badh kar koi pyara bhi nahin ho sakta
tumne sach bolne ki jurat ki
wahan mahfil na sajai jahan khalwat nahin ki
wo aankhen jin se mulaqat ek bahana hua
wo jin ke naqsh-e-qadam dekhne mein aate hain
wo jo aae the bahut mansab o jagir ke sath
wo jo ham-rahi ka ghurur tha wo sawad-e-rah mein jal-bujha
wusat hai wahi tangi-e-aflak wahi hai
yaad kahan rakhni hai tera khwab kahan rakhna hai
ye log jis se ab inkar karna chahte hain
