Hathon Mein Aaj Ki Shab Mehndi Lagaiyega

hathon men aaj ki shab mehndi lagaiyega

samjhe ye rang ham bhi kuchh rang laiyega

ye shokhiyan tumhari likkhi hui hain dil par

akhir kabhi to mere qaabu men aiyega

phir main bhi kuchh kahunga dekho zaban roko

phir munh chhupa ke mujh se aansu bahaiyega

zat-e-sharif ho tum main khuub janta huun

tufan aur koi mujh par uthaiyega

haan shama ka main gul huun naseh ki guftugu huun

badh jaunga jahan tak mujh ko ghataiyega

ummid-var baaqi kuchh aur rah gae hain

phir bhi naqab-e-gesu munh se hataiyega

be-vajh ye nahin hai andaz guftugu ka

phir kal ki tarah ai jaan baten sunaiyega

main huun mizaj-qatil lazim hai khauf mujh se

jhuti qasam nahin huun har-dam jo khaiyega

ye kyuun hai na-umidi dargah-e-kibriya se

jo kuchh ki aarzu hai vaisa hi paiyega

mushtaq ne to jaan di gul-gu libas kyuun ho

ye rang-e-nau-arusi kis ko dikhaiyega

dekho raqib aae dekho raqib aae

kya munh ab aap ka hai jo munh chhupaiyegaga

ham khuub jante hain ustadiyan tumhari

mahfil men baithe baithe ankhen milaiyega

akhir kuchh intiha bhi be-rahmiyon ki sahab

kahiye to ashiqon ko kab tak sataiyega

mumkin nahin jo niyyat badle tumhari ai jaan

kya qahr aaj ki shab ham par na laiyega

kuchh lahza aur thahro ta-ruh tan se nikle

aaegi aur aafat gar aap jaiyega

samjhe hue hain jo kuchh dil men bhare hue hai

kaahe ko aiyega kaahe ko aiyega

aao to jald aao dam-bhar ke baad ai jaan

mujh ko na paiyega mujh ko na paiyega

sun lijiyega jo kuchh muddat se aarzu hai

fursat ho gar mayassar dam-bhar ko aiyega

kuchh duur main nahin huun lazim hai yaad karni

manind-e-dil mujhe bhi pahlu men paiyega

thanDi kabhi na hongi kya garmiyan tumhari

akhir ‘nasim’ ka dil kab tak jalaiyega
