Ghazal 26

Sher 23

jo sunñā chāho to bol uTTheñge añdhere bhī

na sunñā chāho to dil sadā sunā.ī na de

jo sunna chaho to bol uTThenge andhere bhi

na sunna chaho to dil ki sada sunai na de

hazāroñ saal safar kar ke phir vahīñ pahuñche

bahut zamāna huā thā hameñ zamīñ se chale

hazaron sal safar kar ke phir wahin pahunche

bahut zamana hua tha hamein zamin se chale

māñgne vāloñ ko kyā izzat o rusvā.ī se

dene vāloñ amīrī bharam khultā hai

mangne walon ko kya izzat o ruswai se

dene walon ki amiri ka bharam khulta hai

niind ban kar mirī āñkhoñ se mire ḳhuuñ meñ utar

rat-jagā ḳhatm ho aur raat mukammal ho jaa.e

nind ban kar meri aankhon se mere KHun mein utar

rat-jaga KHatm ho aur raat mukammal ho jae

be-barse guzar jaate haiñ umDe hue bādal

jaise unheñ merā patā yaad nahīñ hai

be-barse guzar jate hain umDe hue baadal

jaise unhen mera hi pata yaad nahin hai
