aag the ibtidā-e-ishq meñ ham


ab jo haiñ ḳhaak intihā hai ye

ishq hai ishq ye mazāq nahīñ


chand lamhoñ meñ faisla na karo

ishq ik 'mīr' bhārī patthar hai


kab ye tujh nā-tavāñ se uThtā hai

ishq jab tak na kar chuke rusvā


aadmī kaam nahīñ hotā

ishq meñ bhī koī anjām huā kartā hai


ishq meñ yaad hai āġhāz āġhāz mujhe

ishq nāzuk-mizāj hai behad


aql bojh uThā nahīñ saktā

ishq ne 'ġhālib' nikammā kar diyā


varna ham bhī aadmī the kaam ke

ishq par zor nahīñ hai ye vo ātish 'ġhālib'


ki lagā.e na lage aur bujhā.e na bane

jazba-e-ishq salāmat hai to inshā-allāh


kachche dhāge se chale ā.eñge sarkār bañdhe

jise ishq tiir kaarī lage


use zindagī kyuuñ na bhārī lage

koī samjhe to ek baat kahūñ


ishq taufīq hai gunāh nahīñ

kuchh khel nahīñ hai ishq karnā


ye zindagī bhar rat-jagā hai

kūcha-e-ishq meñ nikal aayā


jis ko ḳhāna-ḳharāb honā thā

maktab-e-ishq dastūr nirālā dekhā


us ko chhuTTī na milī jis ko sabaq yaad huā

raah-e-duur-e-ishq meñ rotā hai kyā


aage aage dekhiye hotā hai kyā

saḳht kāfir thā jin ne pahle 'mīr'


maz.hab-e-ishq iḳhtiyār kiyā
