Bas Ek Nigah-E-Karam Hai Kafi Agar Unhen Pesh-O-Pas Nahin Hai

bas ik nigah-e-karam hai kaafi agar unhen pesh-o-pas nahin hai

zahe tamanna ki meri fitrat asir-e-hirs-o-havas nahin hai

nazar se sayyad duur ho ja yahan tira mujh pe bas nahin hai

chaman ko barbad karne vaale ye ashiyan hai qafas nahin hai

kisi ke jalve tadap rahe hain hudud-e-hosh-o-khirad se aage

hudud-e-hosh-o-khirad se aage nigah ki dastaras nahin hai

jahan ki nairangiyon se yaksar badal gai ashiyan ki surat

qafas samajhti hain jin ko nazren vo dar-haqiqat qafas nahin hai

kahan ke naale kahan ki aahen jami hain un ki taraf nigahen

kuchh is qadar mahv-e-yad huun main ki fursat-e-yak-nafas nahin hai

qusur hai ishrat-e-guzishta ka husn-e-tasir allah allah

vahi fazaen vahi havaen chaman se kuchh kam qafas nahin hai

kisi ki be-e’tinaiyon ne badal hi Daala nizam-e-gulshan

jo baat pahle bahar men thi vo baat ab ke baras nahin hai

ye bu-e-sumbul ye khanda-e-gul aur aah ye dukh bhari sadaen

qafas ke andar chaman hai shayad chaman ke andar qafas nahin hai

na hosh-e-khalvat na fikr-e-mahfil ayaan ho ab kis pe halat-e-dil

main aap hi apna ham-nafas huun mira koi ham-nafas nahin hai

karen bhi kya shikva-e-zamana kahen bhi kya dard ka fasana

jahan men hain laakh dushman-e-jan koi masiha-nafas nahin hai

suni hain ahl-e-junun ne aksar khamoshi-e-marg ki sadaen

suna ye tha karvan-e-hasti rahin-e-bang-e-jaras nahin hai

chaman ki azadiyan moakhkhar tasavvur-e-ashiyan muqaddam

gham-e-asiri hai na-mukammal agar gham-e-khar-o-khas nahin hai

na kar mujhe sharmsar naseh main dil se majbur huun ki jis ka

hai yuun to kaun-o-makan pe qaabu magar mohabbat pe bas nahin hai

kahan vo ummid-e-amad-amad kahan ye ifa-e-ahd-e-farda

jab e’tibar-e-nazar na tha kuchh ab e’tibar-e-nafas nahin hai

vahi hain naghme vahi hain naale sun ai mujhe bhuul jaane vaale

tiri samaat se duur hain ye jabhi to nalon men ras nahin hai

‘shakil’ duniya men jis ko dekha kuchh us ki duniya hi aur dekhi

hazar naqqad-e-zindagi hain magar koi nukta-ras nahin hai
