MORE BY Irfan Siddiqi

    shahāb-chehra koī gum-shuda sitāra koī

    huā tulūa ufuq par mire dobāra koī

    umīd-vāroñ pe khultā nahīñ vo bāb-e-visāl

    aur us ke shahr se kartā nahīñ kināra koī

    magar giraft meñ aatā nahīñ badan us

    ḳhayāl DhūñDhtā rahtā hai isti.āra koī

    kahāñ se aate haiñ ye ghar ujālte hue lafz

    chhupā hai kyā mirī miTTī meñ māh-pāra koī

    bas apne dil sadā par nikal chaleñ is baar

    ki sab ko ġhaib se miltā nahīñ ishāra koī

    gumāñ na kar ki huā ḳhatm kār-e-dil-zadagāñ

    ajab nahīñ ki ho is raakh meñ sharāra koī

    agar nasīb na ho us qamar ham-safrī

    to kyuuñ na ḳhāk-e-guzar par kare guzāra koī

    shahab-chehra koi gum-shuda sitara koi

    hua tulua ufuq par mere dobara koi

    umid-waron pe khulta nahin wo bab-e-visal

    aur us ke shahr se karta nahin kinara koi

    magar giraft mein aata nahin badan us ka

    KHayal DhunDhta rahta hai istiara koi

    kahan se aate hain ye ghar ujalte hue lafz

    chhupa hai kya meri miTTi mein mah-para koi

    bas apne dil ki sada par nikal chalen is bar

    ki sab ko ghaib se milta nahin ishaara koi

    guman na kar ki hua KHatm kar-e-dil-zadagan

    ajab nahin ki ho is rakh mein sharara koi

    agar nasib na ho us qamar ki ham-safri

    to kyun na KHak-e-guzar par kare guzara koi
