miltī hai ḳhū-e-yār se naar iltihāb meñ


kāfir huuñ gar na miltī ho rāhat azaab meñ

kab se huuñ kyā batā.ūñ jahān-e-ḳharāb meñ


shab-hā-e-hijr ko bhī rakhūñ gar hisāb meñ

phir na intizār meñ niiñd aa.e umr bhar


aane ahd kar ga.e aa.e jo ḳhvāb meñ

qāsid ke aate aate ḳhat ik aur likh rakhūñ


maiñ jāntā huuñ jo vo likheñge javāb meñ

mujh tak kab un bazm meñ aatā thā daur-e-jām


saaqī ne kuchh milā na diyā ho sharāb meñ

jo munkir-e-vafā ho fareb us pe kyā chale


kyuuñ bad-gumāñ huuñ dost se dushman ke baab meñ

maiñ muztarib huuñ vasl meñ ḳhauf-e-raqīb se


Daalā hai tum ko vahm ne kis pech-o-tāb meñ

maiñ aur hazz-e-vasl ḳhudā-sāz baat hai


jaañ nazr denī bhuul gayā iztirāb meñ

hai tevrī chaḌhī huī andar naqāb ke


hai ik shikan paḌī huī tarf-e-naqāb meñ

lākhoñ lagāo ek churānā nigāh


lākhoñ banāo ek bigaḌnā itaab meñ

vo naala dil meñ ḳhas ke barābar jagah na paa.e


jis naala se shigāf paḌe āftāb meñ

vo sehr mudd.ā-talabī meñ na kaam aa.e


jis sehr se safīna ravāñ ho sarāb meñ

'ġhālib' chhuTī sharāb par ab bhī kabhī kabhī


piitā huuñ roz-e-abr o shab-e-māhtāb meñ

milti hai KHu-e-yar se nar iltihab mein


kafir hun gar na milti ho rahat azab mein

kab se hun kya bataun jahan-e-KHarab mein


shab-ha-e-hijr ko bhi rakhun gar hisab mein

ta phir na intizar mein nind aae umr bhar


aane ka ahd kar gae aae jo KHwab mein

qasid ke aate aate KHat ek aur likh rakhun


main jaanta hun jo wo likhenge jawab mein

mujh tak kab un ki bazm mein aata tha daur-e-jam


saqi ne kuchh mila na diya ho sharab mein

jo munkir-e-wafa ho fareb us pe kya chale


kyun bad-guman hun dost se dushman ke bab mein

main muztarib hun wasl mein KHauf-e-raqib se


Dala hai tum ko wahm ne kis pech-o-tab mein

main aur hazz-e-wasl KHuda-saz baat hai


jaan nazr deni bhul gaya iztirab mein

hai tewri chaDhi hui andar naqab ke


hai ek shikan paDi hui tarf-e-naqab mein

lakhon lagao ek churana nigah ka


lakhon banao ek bigaDna itab mein

wo nala dil mein KHas ke barabar jagah na pae


jis nala se shigaf paDe aaftab mein

wo sehr mudda-talabi mein na kaam aae


jis sehr se safina rawan ho sarab mein

'ghaalib' chhuTi sharab par ab bhi kabhi kabhi


pita hun roz-e-abr o shab-e-mahtab mein
