Baghair Uske Ye Hairan Hain Baghal Dekh Apni Khaali Hum

baghair us ke ye hairan hain baghal dekh apni khali ham

ki karvat le nahin sakte hain juun tasvir-e-qali ham

koi atish ka parkala jo vaqt-e-khvab yaad aave

to samjhen kyuun na angare ye gul-ha-e-nihali ham

irada gar kiya dushnam dene ka ab ai pyare

to lab se lab mila kar bas tiri kha lenge gaali ham

na ho pahlu men apne jab vo sabza rang hi zalim

to phir kis rang katen ye bala se raat kaali ham

ladi hai aankh us se jo ye chitvan men jatata hai

kisi ki kya hamen parva hain apne la-ubali ham

na ho vo sim-tan paas apne jab sair-e-shab-e-mah men

karen to dekh kya bas ek pital ki si thali ham

jo ho dur-az-khayal-e-‘mani’-o-‘bahzad’ har surat

baghair-az-mu-qalam khinchin vo tasvir-e-khyali ham

karen vasf-e-jamal-e-yar men ik sher gar mauzun

to samjhen intikhab-e-jumla asha-e-jamali ham

ba-kunj-e-be-kasi padhte hain jo ham marsiya dil ka

to hain aap hi javabi aur aap hi hain savali ham

vo Duuba itr men ho mast-e-mai masruf-e-sair-e-gul

aur us ko is ravish dekhen darun-e-bagh-e-khali ham

gul-e-ummid to shayad ki apna bhi shagufta ho

taajjub kuchh nahin gar paaen phal paate sahali ham

zi-bas halat-e-ishq ab ham pe taari hai sada ‘jurat’

ba-tarz-e-ashiqana kahte hain ashar-e-‘hali’ ham
