Ghazal

andaz hu-ba-hu teri aawaz-e-pa ka tha

jab tiraa hukm milaa tark mohabbat kar dii

ab to shahro.n se KHabar aatii hai diivaano.n kii

andaaz huu-ba-huu tirii aavaaz-e-paa kaa thaa

apne maahaul se the qais ke rishte kyaa kyaa

daavaa to kiyaa husn-e-jahaa.n-soz kaa sab ne

ejaaz hai ye terii pareshaa.n-nazarii kaa

faasle ke ma.anii kaa kyuu.n fareb khaate ho

go mire dil ke zaKHm zaatii hai.n

ham din ke payaamii hai.n magar kushta-e-shab hai.n

har lamha agar gurez-paa hai

hotaa nahii.n zauq-e-zindagii kam

jaane kahaa.n the aur chale the kahaa.n se ham

jab tiraa hukm milaa tark mohabbat kar dii

jii chaahtaa hai falak pe jaa.uu.n

kha.Daa thaa kab se zamii.n piiTh par uThaa.e hu.e

lab-e-KHaamosh se ifshaa hogaa

mudaavaa habs kaa hone lagaa aahista aahista

phir bhayaanak tiirgii me.n aa ga.e

qalam dil me.n Duboyaa jaa rahaa hai

shaam ko sub.h-e-chaman yaad aa.ii

suuraj ko nikalnaa hai so niklegaa dobaaraa

terii mahfil bhii mudaavaa nahii.n tanhaa.ii kaa

tuu jo badlaa to zamaana bhii badal jaa.egaa

andaaz huu-ba-huu tirii aavaaz-e-paa kaa thaa
