aa.e to yuuñ ki jaise hamesha the mehrbān


bhūle to yuuñ ki goyā kabhī āshnā na the

aur bhī dukh haiñ zamāne meñ mohabbat ke sivā


rāhateñ aur bhī haiñ vasl rāhat ke sivā

aur kyā dekhne ko baaqī hai


aap se dil lagā ke dekh liyā

dil nā-umiid to nahīñ nākām to hai


lambī hai ġham shaam magar shaam to hai

donoñ jahān terī mohabbat meñ haar ke


vo rahā hai koī shab-e-ġham guzār ke

duniyā ne terī yaad se begāna kar diyā


tujh se bhī dil-fareb haiñ ġham rozgār ke

guloñ meñ rañg bhare baad-e-nau-bahār chale


chale bhī aao ki gulshan kārobār chale

ham parvarish-e-lauh-o-qalam karte raheñge


jo dil pe guzartī hai raqam karte raheñge

ik fursat-e-gunāh milī vo bhī chaar din


dekhe haiñ ham ne hausle parvardigār ke

ik tarz-e-taġhāful hai so vo un ko mubārak


ik arz-e-tamannā hai so ham karte raheñge

kar rahā thā ġham-e-jahāñ hisāb


aaj tum yaad be-hisāb aa.e

maqām 'faiz' koī raah meñ jachā nahīñ


jo kū-e-yaar se nikle to sū-e-daar chale

na gul khile haiñ na un se mile na mai hai


ajiib rañg meñ ab ke bahār guzrī hai

na jaane kis liye ummīd-vaar baiThā huuñ


ik aisī raah pe jo terī rahguzar bhī nahīñ

nahīñ nigāh meñ manzil to justujū sahī


nahīñ visāl mayassar to aarzū sahī

tere qaul-o-qarār se pahle


apne kuchh aur bhī sahāre the

tumhārī yaad ke jab zaḳhm bharne lagte haiñ


kisī bahāne tumheñ yaad karne lagte haiñ

vo baat saare fasāne meñ jis zikr na thā


vo baat un ko bahut nā-gavār guzrī hai

ye aarzū bhī baḌī chiiz hai magar hamdam


visāl-e-yaar faqat aarzū baat nahīñ

zindagī kyā kisī muflis qabā hai jis meñ


har ghaḌī dard ke paivand lage jaate haiñ
