Ghazal 37

Sher 38

kis tarah jamā kījiye ab apne aap ko

kāġhaz bikhar rahe haiñ purānī kitāb ke

kis tarah jama kijiye ab apne aap ko

kaghaz bikhar rahe hain purani kitab ke

kyuuñ chalte chalte ruk ga.e vīrān rāsto

tanhā huuñ aaj maiñ zarā ghar tak to saath do

kyun chalte chalte ruk gae viran rasto

tanha hun aaj main zara ghar tak to sath do

mere TuuTe hausle ke par nikalte dekh kar

us ne dīvāroñ ko apnī aur ūñchā kar diyā

mere TuTe hausle ke par nikalte dekh kar

us ne diwaron ko apni aur uncha kar diya

chup-chāp baiThe rahte haiñ kuchh bolte nahīñ

bachche bigaḌ ga.e haiñ bahut dekh-bhāl se

chup-chap baiThe rahte hain kuchh bolte nahin

bachche bigaD gae hain bahut dekh-bhaal se

koī ḳhud-kushī taraf chal diyā

udāsī mehnat Thikāne lagī

koi KHud-kushi ki taraf chal diya

udasi ki mehnat Thikane lagi

Audios 27

aashiq the shahr me.n jo puraane sharaab ke

ab TuuTne hii vaalaa hai tanhaa.ii kaa hisaar

badan par na.ii fasl aane lagii
