REKHTI
aaj di talim gat gat ki mujhe talon ke bich
ab meri do-gana ko mera dhyan hai kya khak
bahaar-e-jaan-faza hai yar ka khat
baithna tha ki hawa ho gaya tausan un ka
banno shirin ki hai kahani talkh
begama main jo badi hun to bhala tujhko kya
changez-khan se kam nahin khun-khwar ka mizaj
choti pe teri sanp ki hai lahar do-gana
dar-ba-dar bhik hi mangega mua mere baad
dekhte hi dekhte kya ho gaya
dikhao tan tan ghadi na mohan ghadi mein kuchh hai ghadi mein kuchh hai
gai thi dekhne baji main suraj-kund ka mela
husn us ka jaan-sahab ruh ko marghub hai
kah di mahtab ne mehran se mulaqat ki baat
karun main kahan tak mudaraat roz
kashti mein kuppi tel ki anna undel dal
khilaf kahti hain huren ki hai qamar ka sa
khilwa na thokaren mue dil dar-ba-dar mujhe
khuda ne di hai bi nam-e-khuda kis shan ki surat
kis pe jhapta mua shikari aaj
kis se garmi ka rakha jae ye bhaari roza
koi mar jae ya ho jaan-ba-lab
kore bachoge tum mujhe kar ke miyan kharab
lahar mein choti ke tere dar ke mare kanp kanp
lahore ki hawas hai na multan ki hawas
main tere sadqe gai ai meri pyari mat chikh
main to kuchh kahti nahin shauq se sau-bai chikh
mere ghar mein zanakhi aai kab
meri taraf se kuchh to tere dil mein chor hai
munh pe kya puchhna yusuf se bua mere baad
namaz padh padh ke tu gunahon se apne tauba bua kiya kar
nind aati nahin kam-bakht diwani aa ja
paisa tha pas rahte the har-an aashna
phir baji-jaan bhadwe ne jhagda kiya shurua
phir gaya tabla bajaane aaj gauhar-jaan ka
rishta-e-ulfat ko todun kis tarah
saqi chaman mein aa ki teri yaad hai bahut
seron mere badan se lahu han nikal gaya
tha kuchh to chor dil mein jo sau bar ki talash
tham tham apne ko rakhti hun bahut sa lekin
tis pedu mein uthi uhi meri jaan gai
tisre chauthe bhi aate nahin ghar aap se aap
tumne kya kya nahin bua dekha
ye dil masos ke chup bhi nahin raha jata
ye mere yar ne kya mujhse bewafai ki
yun hai is dil ko do-gana ki nishani ki hawas
