aai hai kuchh na puchh qayamat kahan kahan1
aaj bhi qafila-e-ishq rawan hai ki jo tha2
aankhon mein jo baat ho gai hai0
ab aksar chup chup se rahen hain yunhi kabhu lab kholen hain0
ab daur-e-asman hai na daur-e-hayat hai2
apne gham ka mujhe kahan gham hai0
bahsen chhidi hui hain hayat-o-mamat ki0
bahut pahle se un qadmon ki aahat jaan lete hain0
bastiyan dhundh rahi hain unhen viranon mein0
daur-e-aghaz-e-jafa dil ka sahaara nikla0
didar mein ik-tarfa didar nazar aaya3
ek roz hue the kuchh ishaaraat khafi se0
firaq ek nai surat nikal to sakti hai3
gham tera jalwa-gah-e-kaun-o-makan hai ki jo tha2
har nala tere dard se ab aur hi kuchh hai0
hath aae to wahi daman-e-jaanan ho jae1
hijr-o-visal-e-yar ka parda utha diya1
ho ke sar-ta-ba-qadam aalam-e-asrar chala0
ishq ki mayusiyon mein soz-e-pinhan kuchh nahin0
jaur-o-be-mehri-e-ighmaz pe kya rota hai0
jise log kahte hain tirgi wahi shab hijab-e-sahar bhi hai0
junun-e-kargar hai aur main hun0
kami na ki tere wahshi ne khak udane mein3
kisi ka yun to hua kaun umr bhar phir bhi3
koi paigham-e-mohabbat lab-e-ejaz to de1
kuchh ishaare the jinhen duniya samajh baithe the hum3
kuchh na kuchh ishq ki tasir ka iqrar to hai2
lutf-saman itab-e-yar bhi hai0
mai-kade mein aaj ek duniya ko izn-e-am tha0
mujhko mara hai har ek dard o dawa se pahle0
narm faza ki karwaten dil ko dukha ke rah gain3
nigah-e-naz ne parde uthae hain kya kya2
raat bhi nind bhi kahani bhi1
rasm-o-rah-e-dahr kya josh-e-mohabbat bhi to ho0
samajhta hun ki tu mujhse juda hai1
sar mein sauda bhi nahin dil mein tamanna bhi nahin3
sham-e-gham kuchh us nigah-e-naz ki baaten karo2
sitaron se ulajhta ja raha hun3
suna to hai ki kabhi be-niyaz-e-gham thi hayat0
tez ehsas-e-khudi darkar hai1
tumhein kyunkar bataen zindagi ko kya samajhte hain1
tur tha kaba tha dil tha jalwa-zar-e-yar tha2
waqt-e-ghurub aaj karamat ho gai2
wo chup-chap aansu bahane ki raaten0
ye maut-o-adam kaun-o-makan aur hi kuchh hai0
ye narm narm hawa jhilmila rahe hain charagh0
zer-o-bam se saz-e-khilqat ke jahan banta gaya0
zindagi dard ki kahani hai1
