faiz-ahmad-faiz

August 1955

shahr men chak-gareban hue napaid ab ke

koi karta hi nahin zabt ki takid ab ke

lutf kar ai nigah-e-yar ki gham valon ne

hasrat-e-dil ki uthai nahin tamhid ab ke

chand dekha tiri ankhon men na honton pe shafaq

milti-julti hai shab-e-gham se tiri diid ab ke

dil dukha hai na vo pahla sa na jaan tadpi hai

ham hi ghafil the ki aai hi nahin iid ab ke

phir se bujh jaengi shamen jo hava tez chali

la ke rakkho sar-e-mahfil koi khurshid ab ke
