Iqbal Kaifi

Ghazal 10

Sher 11

amn 'kaifī' ho nahīñ saktā kabhī

jab talak zulm-o-sitam maujūd hai

amn 'kaifi' ho nahin sakta kabhi

jab talak zulm-o-sitam maujud hai

guhar samjhā thā lekin sañg niklā

kisī zarf kitnā tañg niklā

guhar samjha tha lekin sang nikla

kisi ka zarf kitna tang nikla

dekhā hai mohabbat ko ibādat nazar se

nafrat ke avāmil hameñ ma.ayūb rahe haiñ

dekha hai mohabbat ko ibaadat ki nazar se

nafrat ke awamil hamein mayub rahe hain

ḳhizāñ daur bhī aatā hai ek din 'kaifī'

sadā-bahār kahāñ tak daraḳht rahte haiñ

KHizan ka daur bhi aata hai ek din 'kaifi'

sada-bahaar kahan tak daraKHt rahte hain

yahī nahīñ ki nigāhoñ ko ashk-bār kiyā

tire firāq meñ dāman bhī taar taar kiyā

yahi nahin ki nigahon ko ashk-bar kiya

tere firaq mein daman bhi tar tar kiya
