aankh us pur-jafa se ladti hai0
aankhen meri talwon se wo mal jae to achchha0
aate hi tu ne ghar ke phir jaane ki sunai1
ab to ghabra ke ye kahte hain ki mar jaenge0
ai zauq waqt nale ke rakh le jigar pe hath0
azizo isko na ghadiyal ki sada samjho0
bagh-e-alam mein jahan nakhl-e-hina lagta hai0
balaen aankhon se unki mudam lete hain1
barq mera aashiyan kab ka jala kar le gai0
bazm mein zikr mera lab pe wo lae to sahi1
chashm-e-qatil hamein kyunkar na bhala yaad rahe0
chupke chupke gham ka khana koi humse sikh jae0
dariya-e-ashk chashm se jis aan bah gaya0
dikhla na khaal-e-naf tu ai gul-badan mujhe0
dil bache kyunkar buton ki chashm-e-shokh-o-shang se0
dud-e-dil se hai ye tariki mere gham-khane mein1
ek sadma dard-e-dil se meri jaan par to hai0
gain yaron se wo agli mulaqaton ki sab rasmein0
guhar ko jauhari sarraf zar ko dekhte hain0
hain dahan ghunchon ke wa kya jaane kya kahne ko hain0
hangama garm hasti-e-na-paedar ka0
hath sine pe mere rakh ke kidhar dekhte ho0
hue kyun us pe aashiq hum abhi se0
hum hain aur shughl-e-ishq-bazi hai0
jab chala wo mujhko bismil khun mein ghaltan chhod kar1
jo kuchh ki hai duniya mein wo insan ke liye hai0
juda hon yar se hum aur na ho raqib juda0
kab haq-parast zahid-e-jannat-parast hai0
kahan talak kahun saqi ki la sharab to de0
kal gae the tum jise bimar-e-hijran chhod kar0
kaun waqt ai wae guzra ji ko ghabraate hue0
kisi bekas ko ai bedad gar mara to kya mara1
koi in tang-dahanon se mohabbat na kare0
koi kamar ko teri kuchh jo ho kamar to kahe0
kya aae tum jo aae ghadi do ghadi ke baad0
kya gharaz lakh khudai mein hon daulat wale0
lai hayat aae qaza le chali chale3
lete hi dil jo aashiq-e-dil-soz ka chale0
mahfil mein shor-e-qulqul-e-mina-e-mul hua0
mar kar tir jo wo dilbar-e-jaani mange0
maraz-e-ishq jise ho use kya yaad rahe0
maza tha hum ko jo laila se du-ba-du karte0
mere sine se tera tir jab ai jang-ju nikla0
na karta zabt main nala to phir aisa dhuan hota0
na khincho aashiq-tishna-jigar ke tir pahlu se0
nahin sabaat bulandi-e-izz-o-shan ke liye0
nala is shor se kyun mera duhai deta0
nigah ka war tha dil par phadakne jaan lagi0
nimcha yar ne jis waqt baghal mein mara0
qasd jab teri ziyarat ka kabhu karte hain0
qufl-e-sad-khana-e-dil aaya jo tu tut gae0
rind-e-kharab-haal ko zahid na chhed tu0
sab ko duniya ki hawas khwar liye phirti hai1
tere aafat-zada jin dashton mein ad jate hain0
us sang-e-astan pe jabin-e-niyaz hai0
waqt-e-piri shabab ki baaten0
wo kaun hai jo mujh pe tassuf nahin karta0
ye iqamat hamein paigham-e-safar deti hai0
zakhmi hun tere nawak-e-duz-dida-nazar se0
