Aalam Hi Aur Tha Jo Shanasaiyon Mein Tha

aalam hi aur tha jo shanasaiyon men tha

jo diip tha nigah ki parchhaiyon men tha

vo be-panah khauf jo tanhaiyon men tha

dil ki tamam anjuman-araiyon men tha

ik lamha-e-fusun ne jalaya tha jo diya

phir umr bhar khayal ki raanaiyon men tha

ik khvab-gun si dhuup thi zakhmon ki aanch men

ik saeban sa dard ki purvaiyon men tha

dil ko bhi ik jarahat-e-dil ne ata kiya

ye hausla ki apne tamashaiyon men tha

katta kahan tavil tha raton ka silsila

suraj miri nigah ki sachchaiyon men tha

apni gali men kyuun na kisi ko vo mil saka

jo e’timad badiya-paimaiyon men tha

is ahd-e-khud-sipas ka puchho ho majra

masruf aap apni paziraiyon men tha

us ke huzur shukr bhi asan nahin ‘ada’

vo jo qarib-e-jan miri tanhaiyon men tha
