Bahana dhundte rahte hain ko.i rone ka

Bahana dhundte rahte hain ko.i rone ka
Hamen ye shauq hai kya astin bhigone ka

Agar palak pe hai moti to ye nahin kaafi
Hunar bhi chahiye alfaz men pirone ka

Jo fasl KHvab ki tayyar hai to ye jaano
Ki vakt aa gaya phir dard ko.i bone ka

Ye zindagi bhi ajab karobar hai ki mujhe
KHushi hai paane ki ko.i na ranj khone ka

Hai paash paash magar phir muskurata hai
Vo chehra jaise ho TuuTe hu.e khilaune ka

Aksar haseen khwabon ke tuut jaane ke baad

aksar

Aksar haseen khwabon ke tuut jaane ke baad
Ashq bhi bahane padte hei muskurane ke baad

Pashemaan mohabbat ke la-ilaaj zakhm ki tarah
Aawaz dete hai kyun ashq itna rulaane ke baad

(pasheman: ashamed, la-ilaaj: uncurable)

Marhoom ishq se kya wasta abh apne vajuud ka
Kyun chali aati hei yaade yunh tadpane ke baad

(marhoom: dead)

Kitni dushwaar guzarti hei abh ye ghadiyan bhi
Gum hi meethe lagte hei bewafa tarane ke baad

(dushwaar: difficult)

Ye qaydaah aankhon ka bhi kuch toe niraala hei
Khulti hei ye aksar gehri chott khane ke baad

(qaydaah: rule)

Be rahm logg deewano ki tadap samajenge kaise
Kanha kuch sochte hei ye sitam dhane ke baad

Dilon se khelne mein kuch toe ehtiyaat rakhte
Ye sambhalta hi nahi so baar sambhalne ke baad

(ehtiyaat: caution)

Sundar komal sapnoN ki baaraat guzar gayi jaanaaN

Sundar komal sapnoN ki baaraat guzar gayi jaanaaN
Dhup aNkhon tak aa pahuNchi hai raat guzar gayi jaanaaN

Bhor samay tak jis ne hamaiN baaham uljhaaye rakkha
Woh albeli resham jaisi baat guzar gayi jaanaaN

Sadaa ki dekhi raat hamaiN is baar mili to chupke se
Khaali hath pe rakh k kya saughat guzar gayi jaanaaN

Kis koNpal ki aas meN ab tak waise hi sar-sabz ho tum
Ab to dhup ka mausam hai barsaat guzar gayi jaanaaN

Log na jane kin raatoN ki muraadeN maaNga karte haiN
Apni raat to woh jo tere saath guzar gayi jaanaaN

Shab wohi lekin sitara aur hai

Shab wohi lekin sitara aur hai
Ab safar ka iste’ara aur hai

Ek muththi rait men kaise thame
Is samandar ka kinara aur hai

Mauj k murne men kitni der hai
Nao dali aur dhara aur hai

Jang ka hathyar tai kuch aur tha
Teer seene men utara aur hai

Matn men to jurm sabit hai magar
Haashiya, sare ka sara aur hai

Sath to mera zamiN deti mager
Aasman ka hi ishara aur hai

Dhoop men dewaar hi kaam ayegi
Tez barish ka sahara aur hai

Haarne men ek anaa ki baat thi
Jeet jane men khasara aur hai

Sukh ke mausam ungliyoN pe gin liye
Fasl E gham ka goshwara aur hai

Der se palkeN nahi jhapkiN meri
Pesh E jaN abke nazara aur hai

Aur kuch pal us ka rasta dekh lun
Aasman par ek tara aur hai

Had chiraghon ki yahan se khatm hai
Aaj se rasta hamara aur hai

Bahut roya woh hum ko yaad kar ke

Bahut roya woh hum ko yaad kar ke
Hamaari zindagii barbaad kar ke

PalaT kar phir yahiN aajayeNge hum
Woh dekhe to hamaiN aazaad karke

Rihaayii ki koi soorat nahii hai
Magar haaN! minnat E saiyaad kar ke

Badan mera chhuaa tha usne lekin
Gaya hai rooh ko aabaad kar ke

Har aamir tool dena chaahta hai
Muqarrar zulm ki mee’aad kar ke

YuN hausla dil ne haaraa kab tha

YuN hausla dil ne haaraa kab tha
Sartaan mera sitaaraa kab tha

Laazim tha guzarna zindagi se
Bin zehr piye guzaaraa kab tha

Kuchh pal use aur dekh sakte
AshkoN ko magar gawaaraa kab tha

Hum khud bhi judaayi ka sabab the
Uska hi qusoor saaraa kab tha

Ab aur ke saath hai to kya dukh
Pahle bhi koi hamaaraa kab tha

Ek naam par zakhm khil uthe the
Qaatil ki taraf ishaaraa kab tha

Aaye ho to raushni hui hai!!
Is baam par koi taaraa kab tha

Dekha hua ghar tha par kisi ne
Dulhan ki tarah saNwaaraa kab tha

KyuN mujh pe hua hai mehrbaaN tu

KyuN mujh pe hua hai mehrbaaN tu
Ek zarra-e-khaak aur kahaaN tu

MaiN dhoop ki aadi ho chali thi
KyuN mujh pe bana hai sayebaaN tu

MaiN teri zameen-e-nisf-e-shab huN
TaaroN bhara mera aasmaaN tu

Aise hi hamaari soch yekjaan
MaiN nutq tera, meri zabaaN tu

Taiyyar huN maiN safar ko lekin
Kashti ka uThaaye baadbaaN tu

Kitna bhi ho sakht mera lehjaa
Deeba-o-hareer-o-parniyaaN tu

Ek aam ghareeb-e-shahr hun maiN
Kya sun ke karega daastaaN tu

Pat_thar mein gulaab dekhta hai
Kis darja hai mujh se khushgumaaN tu

Ab thoRa sa waqt rah gaya hai
Zaaye’ karuN maiN na raayegaaN tu

Inkar hamara hai na Iqrar hamara

Inkar hamara hai na Iqrar hamara
Hona hi yahan ab to hai bay kar hamara

Farman hi apnay ki nahi hai koi toqeer
Uncha to buhat hai yahan Darbar hamara

Zakhmon say guzartay huye jhonkay sehar o sham
Rakhta hai yeh ghar khoob hawa dar hamara

Leta hai koi Cheez na deta hai koi daam
Thanda hai lagaya hua Bazar hamara

Hum doosron kay Kaam bhala aayein gay kiun kar
Khood say hi nahi koi Saro kar hamara

Lachar say baithay hain us Umeed peh kab say
Ho jaye koi aakay Madad gar hamara

Thehraye huye qaaflay ko dhoop mein aur khood
Sota hai kisi saaye mein Salaar hamara

Ab poochnay ki koi Zaroorat nahi baaqi
Ahwal hai aisa hi laga tar hamara

Dushman kay Zafar dost hain aur dost kay dushman
Ab aan kay Pokhtah hua Kirdar hamara

Yahan kisi ko bhi kuch hasb e aarzoo na mila

Yahan kisi ko bhi kuch hasb e aarzoo na mila
Kisi ko hum na milay aur hum ko tu na mila

Ghazal e ishk sar sab e dob e mazgan par
Kab apni aankh khuli aur lahu lahu na mila

Chamkay Chand bhi the shehar shab kay aiwan mein
Nigar e gham sa magar koi shama ro na mila

Inhi ki ramz chali hai gali gali mein yahan
Jinhein idhar say kabhi azan e guftagoo na mila

Phir aaj maikadah Dil say lot aaye hain
Phir aaj hum ko thikanay ka hum sabo na mila

Uth aur phir se rawanaa ho dar zeyaadaa nahiN

Uth aur phir se rawanaa ho dar zeyaadaa nahiN
Bahut kathin sahi manzil safar zeyaadaa nahiN

ByaaN me apne sadaaQat ki hai kami warnaa
Ye raaz kya hia K us par asar zeyaadaa nahiN

Mujhe kharab kiya usne haaN kiya hoga
Usi se poochhiye mujh ko khabar zeyaadaa nahiN

Suna hai wo mere baare me sochta hai bahut
Khabar to hai hi magar mo’tabar zeyaadaa nahiN

Yeh justaju to rahe kaun hai wo kaisa hai
SuraaGh kuchh to milega agar zeyaadaa nahiN

Abhi rawana huN yeksuyi se maiN dasht ba dasht
K rahguzaar E safar meN shajar zeyaadaa nahiN

Jabhi to khaar E dil E dostaaN nahiN huN abhi
K aib mujh meN bahut haiN hunar zeyaadaa nahiN

DinoN ki baat hai ab kiimiyaa gari apni
K rah gayi hai zara si kasar zeyaadaa nahiN

‘Zafar’ hum aapko gumraah to nahiN kahte
Yahi K haiN bhi agar raah par zeyaadaa nahiN
