aag hai phaili hui kali ghataon ki jagah0
ab teri zarurat bhi bahut kam hai meri jaan0
apnon ne wo ranj diye hain begane yaad aate hain0
aur sab bhul gae harf sadaqat likhna0
aur sab bhul gae harf-e-sadaqat likhna0
baaten to kuchh aisi hain ki khud se bhi na ki jaen0
bade bane the jalib sahab pite sadak ke bich0
bahut raushan hai sham-e-gham hamari0
bhula bhi de use jo baat ho gai pyare0
chur tha zakhmon se dil zakhmi jigar bhi ho gaya0
darakht sukh gae ruk gae nadi nale0
dayar-e-dagh-o-bekhud shahr-e-dehli chhod kar tujhko0
dil ki baat labon par la kar ab tak hum dukh sahte hain0
dil par jo zakhm hain wo dikhaen kisi ko kya0
dil walo kyun dil si daulat yun be-kar lutate ho0
dil-e-pur-shauq ko pahlu mein dabae rakkha0
dushmanon ne jo dushmani ki hai0
ek shakhs ba-zamir mera yar mushafi0
faiz aur faiz ka gham bhulne wala hai kahin0
ghaalib-o-yagana se log bhi the jab tanha0
ghar ke zindan se use fursat mile to aae bhi0
ghazlen to kahi hain kuchh humne un se na kaha ahwal to kya0
ghazlen to kahi hain kuchh humne un se na kaha ahwal to kya0
gulshan ki faza dhuan dhuan hai0
har-gam par the shams-o-qamar us dayar mein0
hujum dekh ke rasta nahin badalte hum0
hum aawara ganw ganw basti basti phirne wale0
humne dil se tujhe sada mana0
humne suna tha sahn-e-chaman mein kaif ke baadal chhae hain0
is shahr-e-kharabi mein gham-e-ishq ke mare0
is shahr-e-kharabi mein gham-e-ishq ke mare0
jab koi kali sehn-e-gulistan mein khili hai0
jagne walo ta-ba-sahar khamosh raho0
jhuti khabren ghadne wale jhute sher sunane wale0
jiwan mujhse main jiwan se sharmata hun0
kabhi to mehrban ho kar bula len0
kahin aah ban ke lab par tera nam aa na jae0
kaise kahen ki yaad-e-yar raat ja chuki bahut0
kam purana bahut naya tha firaq0
karahte hue insan ki sada hum hain0
kaun batae kaun sujhae kaun se des sidhaar gae0
kitna sukut hai rasan-o-dar ki taraf0
kuchh log khayalon se chale jaen to soen0
kya kya log guzar jate hain rang-birangi caron mein0
log giton ka nagar yaad aaya0
mahtab-sifat log yahan khak-basar hain0
mawara-e-jahan se aae hain0
mir-o-ghaalib bane yagana bane0
na dagmagae kabhi hum wafa ke raste mein0
nazar nazar mein liye tera pyar phirte hain0
phir dil se aa rahi hai sada us gali mein chal0
phir kabhi laut kar na aaenge0
shahr viran udas hain galiyan0
sher hota hai ab mahinon mein0
sher se shairi se darte hain0
tere mathe pe jab tak bal raha hai0
teri aankhon ka ajab turfa saman dekha hai0
tu rang hai ghubar hain teri gali ke log0
tum se pahle wo jo ek shakhs yahan takht-nashin tha0
us gali ke logon ko munh laga ke pachhtae0
us raunat se wo jite hain ki marna hi nahin0
usne jab hans ke namaskar kiya0
wahi haalat hain faqiron ke0
wo dekhne mujhe aana to chahta hoga0
ye aur baat teri gali mein na aaen hum0
ye soch kar na mail-e-fariyaad hum hue0
ye ujde bagh virane purane0
yun wo zulmat se raha dast-o-gareban yaro0
zarre hi sahi koh se takra to gae hum0
