Ghazal 24

Sher 12

laa.ī hai kahāñ mujh ko tabī.at do-rañgī

duniyā talabgār bhī duniyā se ḳhafā bhī

lai hai kahan mujh ko tabiat ki do-rangi

duniya ka talabgar bhi duniya se KHafa bhi

jaane vaale mujhe kuchh apnī nishānī de

ruuh pyāsī na rahe aañkh meñ paanī de

jaane wale mujhe kuchh apni nishani de ja

ruh pyasi na rahe aankh mein pani de ja

tum mil ga.e to koī gila ab nahīñ rahā

maiñ apnī zindagī se ḳhafā ab nahīñ rahā

tum mil gae to koi gila ab nahin raha

main apni zindagi se KHafa ab nahin raha

āñkheñ haiñ magar ḳhvāb se mahrūm haiñ 'mid.hat'

tasvīr rishta nahīñ rañgoñ se zarā bhī

aankhen hain magar KHwab se mahrum hain 'midhat'

taswir ka rishta nahin rangon se zara bhi

ḳhvāboñ tijārat meñ yahī ek kamī hai

chaltī hai dukāñ ḳhuub kamā.ī nahīñ detī

KHwabon ki tijarat mein yahi ek kami hai

chalti hai dukan KHub kamai nahin deti
