Akbar Allahabadi

Hun Main Parwana Magar Shama To Ho Raat To Ho

huun main parvana magar shama to ho raat to ho

jaan dene ko huun maujud koi baat to ho

dil bhi hazir sar-e-taslim bhi kham ko maujud

koi markaz ho koi qibla-e-hajat to ho

dil to bechain hai izhar-e-iradat ke liye

kisi janib se kuchh izhar-e-karamat to ho

dil-kusha bada-e-safi ka kise zauq nahin

batin-afroz koi pir-e-kharabat to ho

guftani hai dil-e-pur-dard ka qissa lekin

kis se kahiye koi mustafsir-e-halat to ho

dastan-e-gham-e-dil kaun kahe kaun sune

bazm men mauqa-e-izhar-e-khayalat to ho

vaade bhi yaad dilate hain gile bhi hain bahut

vo dikhai bhi to den un se mulaqat to ho

koi vaaiz nahin fitrat se balaghat men siva

magar insan men kuchh fahm-e-isharat to ho
