Chehre Ke Khadd-O-Khaal Mein Aaine Jade Hain

chehre ke ḳhadd-o-ḳhal men aine jaḌe hain

ham umr-e-gurezan ke muqabil men khaḌe hain

har saal naya saal hai har saal gaya saal

ham uḌte hue lamhon ki chaukhaT pe paḌe hain

dekha hai ye parchhain ki duniya men ki aksar

apne qad-o-qamat se bhi kuchh log baḌe hain

shayad ki mile zaat ke zindan se rihai

divar ko chaTa hai havaon se laḌe hain

uḌte hain parinde to yahan jhiil bhi hogi

tapta hai bayaban-e-badan kos kaḌe hain

shayad koi isa-nafas aae unhen puchhe

ye lafz jo be-jan se kaghaz pe paḌe hain

is baat ka mafhum main samjha nahin ‘aḳhtar’

tasvir men sahil pe kai kachche ghaḌe hain
