ab to jaate haiñ but-kade se 'mīr'


phir mileñge agar ḳhudā laayā

ab to utnī bhī mayassar nahīñ mai-ḳhāne meñ


jitnī ham chhoḌ diyā karte the paimāne meñ

aur bhī dukh haiñ zamāne meñ mohabbat ke sivā


rāhateñ aur bhī haiñ vasl rāhat ke sivā

dil nā-umiid to nahīñ nākām to hai


lambī hai ġham shaam magar shaam to hai

dushmanī jam kar karo lekin ye gunjā.ish rahe


jab kabhī ham dost ho jaa.eñ to sharminda na hoñ

ham aah bhī karte haiñ to ho jaate haiñ badnām


vo qatl bhī karte haiñ to charchā nahīñ hotā

ham ko ma.alūm hai jannat haqīqat lekin


dil ke ḳhush rakhne ko 'ġhālib' ye ḳhayāl achchhā hai

ham ko miTā sake ye zamāne meñ dam nahīñ


ham se zamāna ḳhud hai zamāne se ham nahīñ

hazāroñ ḳhvāhisheñ aisī ki har ḳhvāhish pe dam nikle


bahut nikle mire armān lekin phir bhī kam nikle

ishq ne 'ġhālib' nikammā kar diyā


varna ham bhī aadmī the kaam ke

kabhī kisī ko mukammal jahāñ nahīñ miltā


kahīñ zamīn kahīñ āsmāñ nahīñ miltā

ḳhudī ko kar buland itnā ki har taqdīr se pahle


ḳhudā bande se ḳhud pūchhe batā terī razā kyā hai

maiñ akelā chalā thā jānib-e-manzil magar


log saath aate ga.e aur kārvāñ bantā gayā

qais jañgal meñ akelā hai mujhe jaane do


ḳhuub guzregī jo mil baiTheñge dīvāne do

ragoñ meñ dauḌte phirne ke ham nahīñ qaa.il


jab aañkh se na Tapkā to phir lahū kyā hai

sarfaroshī tamannā ab hamāre dil meñ hai


dekhnā hai zor kitnā baazu-e-qātil meñ hai

shah-zor apne zor meñ girtā hai misl-e-barq


vo tifl kyā giregā jo ghuTnoñ ke bal chale

sitāroñ se aage jahāñ aur bhī haiñ


abhī ishq ke imtihāñ aur bhī haiñ

un ke dekhe se jo aa jaatī hai muñh par raunaq


vo samajhte haiñ ki bīmār haal achchhā hai

vo aa.e ghar meñ hamāre ḳhudā qudrat hai


kabhī ham un ko kabhī apne ghar ko dekhte haiñ

ye ishq nahīñ āsāñ itnā samajh liije


ik aag dariyā hai aur Duub ke jaanā hai

ye jabr bhī dekhā hai tārīḳh nazroñ ne


lamhoñ ne ḳhatā thī sadiyoñ ne sazā paa.ī

zāhid sharāb piine de masjid meñ baiTh kar


vo jagah batā de jahāñ par ḳhudā na ho

zindagī zinda-dilī hai naam


murda-dil ḳhaak jiyā karte haiñ
