ā.īna ā.īna tairtā koī aks


aur har ḳhvāb meñ dūsrā ḳhvāb hai

ā.īna dekh apnā muñh le ke rah ga.e


sāhab ko dil na dene pe kitnā ġhurūr thā

ā.īna kabhī qābil-e-dīdār na hove


gar ḳhaak ke saath us ko sarokār na hove

ā.īna kyuuñ na duuñ ki tamāshā kaheñ jise


aisā kahāñ se lā.ūñ ki tujh kaheñ jise

ā.īnoñ ko zañg lagā


ab maiñ kaisā lagtā huuñ

aa.ina dekh kar tasallī huī


ham ko is ghar meñ jāntā hai koī

aa.ina dekh kar vo ye samjhe


mil gayā husn-e-be-misāl hameñ

aa.ina dekh ke farmāte haiñ


kis ġhazab hai javānī merī

aa.ina dekh ke kahte haiñ sañvarne vaale


aaj be-maut mareñge mire marne vaale

aa.ina ye to batātā hai ki maiñ kyā huuñ magar


aa.ina is pe hai ḳhāmosh ki kyā hai mujh meñ

aa.ine se nazar churāte haiñ


jab se apnā javāb dekhā hai

aap lillāh na dekhā kareñ ā.īna kabhī


dil aa jaanā baḌī baat nahīñ hotī hai

bhūle-bisre hue ġham phir ubhar aate haiñ ka.ī


ā.īna dekheñ to chehre nazar aate haiñ ka.ī

chāhe sone ke frame meñ jaḌ do


aa.ina jhuuT boltā nahīñ

dekh ā.īna jo kahtā hai ki allāh-re maiñ


us maiñ dekhne vaalā huuñ 'baqā' vaah-re maiñ

dekhiyegā sambhal kar ā.īna


sāmnā aaj hai muqābil

dekhnā achchhā nahīñ zaanū pe rakh kar aa.ina


donoñ nāzuk haiñ na rakhiyo aa.ine par aa.ina

dil par choT paḌī hai tab to aah laboñ tak aa.ī hai


yuuñ chhan se bol uThnā to shīshe dastūr nahīñ

dūsroñ par agar tabsira kījiye


sāmne aa.ina rakh liyā kījiye

ek ko do kar dikhā.e aa.ina


gar banā.eñ aahan-e-shamshīr se

hameñ ma.ashūq ko apnā banānā tak nahīñ aatā


banāne vaale ā.īna banā lete haiñ patthar se

is liye kahte the dekhā muñh lagāne maza


ā.īna ab aap madd-e-muqābil ho gayā

jo reza reza nahīñ dil use nahīñ kahte


kaheñ na ā.īna us ko jo paara-paara nahīñ
