Dasht Tarik Tha Aur Khwab Tha Kala Mera

dasht tarik tha aur khvab tha kaala mera

raushni deta raha kaan ka baala mera

katna tha mujhe koh-e-shab-e-ghurbat lekin

tuut kar girta raha raah men bhala mera

tujh ko maalum na thi chak-garebani miri

tu ne is dasht men kyon naam nikala mera

atishin rakhti hai yaan garmi-e-raftar mujhe

huun mah-e-khak-nashin gard hai haala mera

la-makan ne mujhe phenka hai makan ki had men

kis se padta hai yahan dekhiye paala mera

manzil-e-ishq na khak-e-shab-e-hijran men mili

jada-e-ranj men khinchta raha naala mera

dast-e-shaffaf pe likhta hai mira naam koi

shakh-e-sarsabz pe khulta hai ujala mera

mujh ko gar kar-e-mohabbat men zara der hui

aa gaya karne koi aur izala mera

paar kar jaae ye shayad kisi din ju-e-khak

jism ko chahiye kuchh aur sambhala mera

shahr-e-maujud dhuan hai mire bujhne se ‘naved’

shahr-e-nabud men rahta hai ujala mera
