Hijr Ki Shab Hai Aur Ujala Hai

hijr ki shab hai aur ujala hai

kya tasavvur bhi lutne vaala hai

gham to hai ain-e-zindagi lekin

gham-gusaron ne maar Daala hai

ishq majbur o na-murad sahi

phir bhi zalim ka bol-bala hai

dekh kar barq ki pareshani

ashiyan khud hi phunk Daala hai

kitne ashkon ko kitni aahon ko

ik tabassum men us ne Dhala hai

teri baton ko main ne ai vaaiz

ehtiraman hansi men taala hai

maut aae to din phiren shayad

zindagi ne to maar Daala hai

sher naghma shaguftagi masti

gham ka jo ruup hai nirala hai

laghzishen muskurai hain kya kya

hosh ne jab mujhe sambhala hai

dam andhere men ghut raha hai ‘khumar’

aur charon taraf ujala hai
