Ghazal 15

Sher 11

maiñ to is vāste chup huuñ ki tamāshā na bane

samajhtā hai mujhe tujh se gilā kuchh bhī nahīñ

main to is waste chup hun ki tamasha na bane

tu samajhta hai mujhe tujh se gila kuchh bhi nahin

abhī safar meñ koī moḌ nahīñ aayā

nikal gayā hai ye chup-chāp dāstān se kaun

abhi safar mein koi moD hi nahin aaya

nikal gaya hai ye chup-chap dastan se kaun

vo muskurā ke koī baat kar rahā thā 'shumār'

aur us ke lafz bhī the chāñdnī meñ bikhre hue

wo muskura ke koi baat kar raha tha 'shumar'

aur us ke lafz bhi the chandni mein bikhre hue

muddatoñ meñ aaj dil ne faisla āḳhir diyā

ḳhūb-sūrat sahī lekin ye duniyā jhuuT hai

muddaton mein aaj dil ne faisla aaKHir diya

KHub-surat hi sahi lekin ye duniya jhuT hai

ab to hāthoñ se lakīreñ bhī miTī jaatī haiñ

us ko kho kar to mire paas rahā kuchh bhī nahīñ

ab to hathon se lakiren bhi miTi jati hain

us ko kho kar to mere pas raha kuchh bhi nahin
