akhtar-lakhnvi

dekho Usne Qadam Qadam Par Sath diya Begane Ka

dekho us ne qadam qadam par saath diya begane ka

‘aḳhtar’ jis ne ahd kiya tha tum se saath nibhane ka

aaj hamare qadmon men hai kahkashan shahr-e-mahtab

kal tak log kaha karte the ḳhvab use divane ka

tere lab-o-ruḳhsar ke qisse tere qad-o-gesu ki baat

saman ham bhi rakhte hain tanhai men dil bahlane ka

tum bhi sunte to ro dete ham bhi kahte to rote

jaan ke ham ne chhoḌ diya hai ik hissa afsane ka

kuchh to hai jo apnaya hai ham ne ku-e-malamat ko

vaise aur tariqa bhi tha ‘aḳhtar’ dil bahlane ka
