Ek Aah-E-Zer-E-Lab Ke Gunahgar Ho Gae

ik āh-e-zer-e-lab ke gunahgār ho ga.e

ab ham bhī dāḳhil-e-saf-e-aġhyār ho ga.e

jis dard ko samajhte the ham un kā faiz-e-ḳhās

us dard ke bhī laakh ḳharīdār ho ga.e

jin hausloñ se merā junūñ mutma.in na thā

vo hausle zamāne ke meyār ho ga.e

saaqī ke ik ishāre ne kyā sehr kar diyā

ham bhī shikār-e-andak-o-bisyār ho ga.e

ab un laboñ meñ shahad o shakar ghul ga.e to kyā

jab ham halāk-e-talḳhi-e-guftār ho ga.e

har vaada jaise harf-e-ġhalat thā sarāb thā

ham to nisār-e-jur.at-e-inkār ho ga.e

terī nazar payām-e-yaqīñ de ga.ī magar

kuchh taaza vasvase bhī to bedār ho ga.e

is mai-kade meñ uchhlī hai dastār bār-hā

vaa.iz yahāñ kahāñ se numūdār ho ga.e

sarsabz pattiyoñ kā lahū chuus chuus kar

kitne hī phuul raunaq-e-gulzār ho ga.e

‘zaidī’ ne taaza sher sunā.e ba-rañg-e-ḳhās

ham bhī fidā-e-shoḳhi-e-inkār ho ga.e
