akbar-allahabadi

Dasht-E-Ghurbat Hai Alalat Bhi Hai Tanhai Bhi

dasht-e-ghurbat hai alalat bhi hai tanhai bhi

aur un sab pe fuzun badiya-paimai bhi

khvab-e-rahat hai kahan niind bhi aati nahin ab

bas uchat jaane ko aai jo kabhi aai bhi

yaad hai mujh ko vo be-fikri o aghaz-e-shabab

sukhan-arai bhi thi anjuman-arai bhi

nigah-e-shauq-o-tamanna ki vo dilkash thi kamand

jis se ho jaate the raam ahu-e-sahrai bhi

ham sanam-khana jahan karte the apna qaaim

phir khade hote the vaan huur ke shaidai bhi

ab na vo umr na vo log na vo lail o nahar

bujh gai taba kabhi josh pe gar aai bhi

ab to shubhe bhi mujhe dev nazar aate hain

us zamane men pari-zad thi rusvai bhi

kaam ki baat jo kahni ho vo kah lo ‘akbar’

dam men chhin jaegi ye taqat-e-goyai bhi
