sajida-zaidi

Faqiri Mein

naghmagi giit harf-o-nava

nala-e-shauq saut o sada

ek bahri siyasat ke darbar men

sar-nigun pa-ba-zanjir laae gae

saara simab-e-naqad-o-nazar

sab tilismat-e-harf-o-hunar

parda-e-sahar-o-asrar se tuut kar

maqtal-e-arzu ban gae

vo tarab-zar-e-dil qasr-e-gham

raat bhar jagti agahi yaani

aqlim-jan

mashinon ke khanDarat men kho gae

vo jo ahang-e-alam tha

khvabon ka maskan tha aur harf o maani ki tathir tha

apni bedariyon ki saza katne ke liye

sang o aahan men Dhala gaya

sajda-e-haq

tamanna ke afaq tak dard ke qafile

kaba-e-nur tak abla-pai ke silsile

zar-e-maghrib ki mizan men tul gae

ham ki is dasht men abla-pa the sadiyon se

is raah ke sang-e-mil

apne qadmon ke hamraz the

ham bhi is daur-e-uftadgi men

bas

tamasha-e-ahl-e-karam dekhte rah gae
