aaghosh-e-tasawwur mein jab maine use maska
aan rakhta hai ajab yar ka lad kar chalna
aaya nahin jo kar kar iqrar hanste hanste
ada-o-naz mein kuchh kuchh jo hosh usne sambhaala hai
ai dil apni tu chah par mat phul
ai meri jaan hamesha ho teri jaan ki khair
andaz kuchh aur naz-o-ada aur hi kuchh hai
awwalan us be-nishan aur ba-nishan ko ishq hai
bagule uth chale the aur na thi kuchh der aandhi mein
baithe hain ab to hum bhi bologe tum na jab tak
bazm-e-tarab waqt-e-aish saqi o naql o sharab
bhare hain us pari mein ab to yaro sar-ba-sar moti
chah mein uski dil ne hamare nam ko chhoda nam kiya
chahat ke ab ifsha-kun-e-asrar to hum hain
chitwan durust sean baja baaten thik-thik
chitwan ki kahun ki ishaaraat ki garmi
chitwan mein shararat hai aur sin bhi chanchal hai
dekh kar kurte gale mein sabz dhani aap ki
dekh kar kurti gale mein sabz dhani aap ki
dil ko le kar humse ab jaan bhi talab karte hain aap
dil yar ki gali mein kar aaram rah gaya
dur se aae the saqi sun ke mai-khane ko hum
gar humne dil sanam ko diya phir kisi ko kya
gulzar hai daghon se yahan tan badan apna
hai ab to wo hamein us sarw-e-sim-bar ki talab
ho kis tarah na hum ko har dam hawa-e-matlab
ho kyun na tere kaam mein hairan tamasha
hua khurshid ke dekhe se duna iztirab apna
hum ashk-e-gham hain agar tham rahe rahe na rahe
hum mein bhi aur unhon mein pahle jo yariyan thin
inkar humse ghair se iqrar bas ji bas
isa ki qum se hukm nahin kam faqir ka
ishq ka mara na sahra hi mein kuchh chaupat pada
ishq phir rang wo laya hai ki ji jaane hai
jab uske hi milne se nakaam aaya
jhamak dikhate hi us dil-ruba ne lut liya
jo dil ko dije to dil mein khush ho kare hai kis kis tarah se halchal
jo kuchh hai husn mein har mah-laqa ko aish-o-tarab
jo tumne puchha to harf-e-ulfat bar aaya sahib hamare lab se
kaha ye aaj hamein fahm ne suno sahib
kal mere qatl ko is dhab se wo banka nikla
kal nazar aaya chaman mein ek ajab rashk-e-chaman
kaun yan sath liye taj-o-sarir aaya hai
khayal-e-yar sada chashm-e-nam ke sath raha
ki talab ek shah ne kuchh pand az-hakim-e-nukta-dan
kis ke liye kijiye jama-e-diba-talab
kuchh aur to nahin hamein is ka ojab hai ab
kya ada kiya naz hai kya aan hai
lawe khatir mein hamare dil ko wo maghrur kya
lipat lipat ke main us gul ke sath sota tha
mani ne jo dekha teri taswir ka naqsha
mera khat hai jahan yaro wo rashk-e-hur le jaana
miyan dil tujhe le chale husn wale
muntazir uske dila ta-ba-kuja baithna
na main dil ko ab har makan bechta hun
na surkhi ghuncha-e-gul mein tere dahan ki si
nahin hawa mein ye bu na farokhtan ki si
nazar pada ek but-e-pari-wash nirali saj-dhaj nai ada ka
nikle ho kis bahaar se tum zard-posh ho
qasr-e-rangin se guzar bagh-o-gulistan se nikal
qatl par bandh chuka wo but-e-gumrah miyan
rakhta hai go qadim se buniyaad aagara
rakhta hai sada hont ko jun gul ki kali chup
rukh pari chashm pari zulf pari aan pari
sab thath ye ek bund se qudrat ki bana hai
sahar humne chaman-andar ajab dekha kal ek dilbar
saqi sharab hai to ghanimat hai ab ki ab
sehn-e-gulshan mein chali phir ke hawa bismillah
shab-e-mah mein dekh us ka wo jhamak jhamak ke chalna
tumhaare hath se kal hum bhi ro liye sahib
usi ka dekhna hai thanta dil
uske sharar-e-husn ne shola jo ek dikha diya
wo chandni mein jo tuk sair ko nikalte hain
wo sanam jo mehr-ezar hai use humse milne mein aar hai
yak-ba-yak hogi siyahi is qadar jati rahi
yan to kuchh apni khushi se nahin hum aae hue
yar ne hum ko agar ruswa kaha achchha kaha
ye chhapke ka jo baala kan mein ab tumne dala hai
ye gila dil se to hargiz nahin jaana sahib
ye hasb-e-aql to koi nahin saman milne ka
ye husn hai aah ya qayamat ki ek bhabhuka bhabhak raha hai
