aañkh se duur na ho dil se utar jā.egā


vaqt kyā hai guzartā hai guzar jā.egā

ab aur kyā kisī se marāsim baḌhā.eñ ham


ye bhī bahut hai tujh ko agar bhuul jaa.eñ ham

ab dil tamannā hai to ai kaash yahī ho


aañsū jagah aañkh se hasrat nikal aa.e

ab ke ham bichhḌe to shāyad kabhī ḳhvāboñ meñ mileñ


jis tarah sūkhe hue phuul kitāboñ meñ mileñ

agar tumhārī anā hai savāl to phir


chalo maiñ haath baḌhātā huuñ dostī ke liye

aur 'farāz' chāhiyeñ kitnī mohabbateñ tujhe


maaoñ ne tere naam par bachchoñ naam rakh diyā

bandagī ham ne chhoḌ hai 'farāz'


kyā kareñ log jab ḳhudā ho jaa.eñ

dil bhī pāgal hai ki us shaḳhs se vābasta hai


jo kisī aur hone de na apnā rakkhe

dil ko tirī chāhat pe bharosa bhī bahut hai


aur tujh se bichhaḌ jaane Dar bhī nahīñ jaatā

ġham-e-duniyā bhī ġham-e-yaar meñ shāmil kar lo


nashsha baḌhtā hai sharābeñ jo sharāboñ meñ mileñ

ham ko achchhā nahīñ lagtā koī hamnām tirā


koī tujh ho to phir naam bhī tujh rakkhe

huā hai tujh se bichhaḌne ke ba.ad ye ma.alūm


ki nahīñ thā tire saath ek duniyā thī

is qadar musalsal thiiñ shiddateñ judā.ī


aaj pahlī baar us se maiñ ne bevafā.ī

is se pahle ki be-vafā ho jaa.eñ


kyuuñ na ai dost ham judā ho jaa.eñ

kis kis ko batā.eñge judā.ī sabab ham


mujh se ḳhafā hai to zamāne ke liye aa

maiñ kyā karūñ mire qātil na chāhne par bhī


tire liye mire dil se duā nikaltī hai

ranjish sahī dil dukhāne ke liye aa


aa phir se mujhe chhoḌ ke jaane ke liye aa

tum takalluf ko bhī iḳhlās samajhte ho 'farāz'


dost hotā nahīñ har haath milāne vaalā

umr bhar kaun nibhātā hai ta.alluq itnā


ai mirī jaan ke dushman tujhe allāh rakkhe

zindagī se yahī gila hai mujhe


bahut der se milā hai mujhe
