Ghazal 27

Sher 19

ye bhī ejaaz mujhe ishq ne baḳhshā thā kabhī

us āvāz se maiñ diip jalā saktā thā

ye bhi ejaz mujhe ishq ne baKHsha tha kabhi

us ki aawaz se main dip jala sakta tha

mahakte phuul sitāre damaktā chāñd dhanak

tire jamāl se kitnoñ ne istifāda kyā

mahakte phul sitare damakta chand dhanak

tere jamal se kitnon ne istifada kya

ye bhī tirī shikast nahīñ hai to aur kyā

jaisā chāhtā thā maiñ vaisā nahīñ banā

ye bhi teri shikast nahin hai to aur kya

jaisa tu chahta tha main waisa nahin bana

koī hairat hai na is baat ronā hai hameñ

ḳhaak se uTThe haiñ so ḳhaak honā hai hameñ

koi hairat hai na is baat ka rona hai hamein

KHak se uTThe hain so KHak hi hona hai hamein

ain mumkin hai ki bīnā.ī mujhe dhoka de

ye jo shabnam hai sharāra bhī to ho saktā hai

ain mumkin hai ki binai mujhe dhoka de

ye jo shabnam hai sharara bhi to ho sakta hai
