Aankhon Se Dur Subh Ke Tare Chale Gae

ankhon se duur subh ke taare chale gae

niind aa gai to gham ke nazare chale gae

dil tha kisi ki yaad men masruf aur ham

shishe men zindagi ko utare chale gae

allah re be-khudi ki ham un ke hi ru-ba-ru

be-ikhtiyar unhi ko pukare chale gae

mushkil tha kuchh to aish ki baazi ka jitna

kuchh jitne ke khauf se haare chale gae

nakami-e-hayat ka karte bhi kya gila

do din guzarna the guzare chale gae

targhib-e-tark-e-shauq ke parde men gham-gusar

har naqsh-e-arzu ko ubhare chale gae

pahunchai kis ne davat-e-mai ahl-e-zohd ko

shayad tiri nazar ke ishare chale gae

vo dil harif-e-jalva-e-firdaus ban gaya

jis dil men tere gham ke sharare chale gae

un ke baghair ziist ba-har-hal ziist thi

jaisi guzarni thi guzare chale gae

jalve kahan jo zauq-e-tamasha nahin ‘shakil’

nazren chali gaiin to nazare chale gae
