Aamad-E-Khat Se Hua Hai Sard Jo Bazar-E-Dost

amad-e-ḳhat se hua hai sard jo bazar-e-dost

dud-e-sham-e-kushta tha shayad ḳhat-e-ruḳhsar-e-dost

ai dil-e-na-aqibat-andesh zabt-e-shauq kar

kaun la sakta hai tab-e-jalva-e-didar-e-dost

ḳhana-viran-sazi-e-hairat tamasha kijiye

surat-e-naqsh-e-qadam huun rafta-e-raftar-e-dost

ishq men bedad-e-rashk-e-ghair ne maara mujhe

kushta-e-dushman huun aḳhir garche tha bimar-e-dost

chashm-e-ma raushan ki us bedard ka dil shaad hai

dida-e-pur-ḳhun hamara saghar-e-sarshar-e-dost

ghair yuun karta hai meri pursish us ke hijr men

be-takalluf dost ho jaise koi gham-ḳhvar-e-dost

taaki main janun ki hai us ki rasai vaan talak

mujh ko deta hai payam-e-vada-e-didar-e-dost

jab ki main karta huun apna shikva-e-zof-e-dimagh

sar kare hai vo hadis-e-zulf-e-ambar-bar-e-dost

chupke chupke mujh ko rote dekh paata hai agar

hans ke karta hai bayan-e-shoḳhi-e-guftar-e-dost

mehrbani-ha-e-dushman ki shikayat kijiye

ta bayan kiije sipas-e-lazzat-e-azar-e-dost

ye ghazal apni mujhe ji se pasand aati hai aap

hai radif-e-sher men ‘ghalib’ zi-bas takrar-e-dost

chashm-e-band-e-ḳhalq juz timsal-e-ḳhud-bini nahin

aina hai qalib-e-ḳhisht-e-dar-o-divar-e-dost

barq-e-ḳhirman-zar gauhar hai nigah-e-tez yaan

ashk ho jaate hain ḳhushk az-garmi-e-raftar-e-dost

hai sava neze pe us ke qamat-e-nau-ḳhez se

aftab-e-sub.h-e-mahshar hai gul-e-dastar-e-dost

ai adu-e-maslahat chand ba-zabt afsurda rah

kardani hai jama tab-e-shoḳhi-e-didar-e-dost

laghzishat-e-mastana o josh-e-tamasha hai ‘asad’

atish-e-mai se bahar-e-garmi-e-bazar-e-dost
