Dilli Se Wapsi

dilli se vapsi

ruḳhsat ai dilli tiri mahfil se ab jaata huun main

nauhagar jaata huun main nala-ba-lab jaata huun main

yaad aenge mujhe tere zamin-o-asman

rah chuke hain meri jaulan-gah tere bostan

tera dil dhadka chuke hain mere ehsasat bhi

tere aivanon men gunje hain mire naghmat bhi

rashk-e-shiraz-kuhan hindostan ki aabru

sar-zamin-e-husn-o-mausiqi bahisht-e-rang-o-bu

maabad-e-husn-o-mohabbat bargah-e-soz-o-saz

tere but-ḳhane hasin tere kalisa dil-navaz

zikr yusuf ka to kya kiije tiri sarkar men

ḳhud zuleḳha aa ke bikti hai tire bazar men

jannaten abad hain tere dar-o-divar men

aur tu abad ḳhud shair ke qalb-e-ar men

mahfil-e-saqi salamat bazm-e-anjum barqarar

nazninan-e-haram par rahmat-e-parvardigar

yaad aaegi mujhe be-tarah yaad aaegi tu

ain vaqt-e-mai-kashi ankhon men phir jaegi tu

kya kahun kis shauq se aaya tha teri bazm men

chhod kar ḳhuld-e-ali-gadh ki hazaron mahfilen

kitne rangin ahd-o-paiman tod kar aaya tha main

dil navazan-e-chaman ka chhod kar aaya tha main

ik nasheman main ne chhoda ik nasheman chhut gaya

saaz bas chheda hi tha main ne ki gulshan chhut gaya

dil men soz-e-gham ki ik duniya liye jaata huun main

aah tere mai-kade se be-piye jaata huun main

jaate jaate lekin ik paiman kiye jaata huun main

apne azm-e-sarfaroshi ki qasam khata huun main

phir tiri bazm-e-hasin men laut kar a.unga main

a.unga main aur ba-andaz-e-digar a.unga main

aah vo chakkar diye hain gardish-e-ayyam ne

khol kar rakh di hain ankhen talḳhi-e-alam ne

fitrat-e-dil dushman-e-naghma hui jaati hai ab

zindagi ik barq ik shoala hui jaati hai ab

sar se pa tak ek ḳhunin raag ban kar a.unga

lala-zar-e-rang-o-bu men aag ban kar a.unga
