Apna Sa Shauq Auron Mein Laen Kahan Se Hum

apna sa shauq auron men laaen kahan se ham

ghabra gae hain be-dili-e-hamrahan se ham

kuchh aisi duur bhi to nahin manzil-e-murad

lekin ye jab ki chhut chalen karvan se ham

ai yad-e-yar dekh ki ba-vasf-e-ranj-e-hijr

masrur hain tiri ḳhalish-e-na-tavan se ham

malum sab hai puchhte ho phir bhi muddaa

ab tum se dil ki baat kahen kya zaban se ham

ai zohd-e-ḳhushk teri hidayat ke vaste

saughat-e-ishq laae hain ku-e-butan se ham

betabiyon se chhup na saka hal-e-arzu

aḳhir bache na us nigah-e-bad-guman se ham

pirana-sar bhi shauq ki himmat buland hai

ḳhvahan-e-kam-e-jan hain jo us naujavan se ham

mayus bhi to karte nahin tum za-rah-e-naz

tang aa gae hain kashmakash-e-imtihan se ham

ḳhalvat banegi tere gham-e-jan-navaz ki

lenge ye kaam apne dil-e-shadman se ham

hai intiha-e-yas bhi ik ibtida-e-shauq

phir aa gae vahin pe chale the jahan se ham

‘hasrat’ phir aur ja ke karen kis ki bandagi

achchha jo sar uthaen bhi is astan se ham
