Ishrat-E-Tanhai

main ki mai-khana-e-ulfat ka purana mai-khvar

mahfil-e-husn ka ik mutrib-e-shirin-guftar

mah-paron ka hadaf zohra-jabinon ka shikar

naghma-paira o navasanj o ghazal-khvan huun main

kitne dil-kash mire but-khan-e-iman ke sanam

vo kalisaon ke aahu vo gazalan-e-haram

main hama-shauq-o-mohabbat vo hama-lutf-o-karam

markaz-e-marhamat-e-mahfil-e-khuban huun main

maujzan hai mai-e-ishrat mire paimanon men

yaas ka dard hai kam-tar mire afsanon men

kamrani hai par-afshan mire rumanon men

yaas ki sai-e-junun-khez pe khandan huun main

mere afkar men mahtab ki talat ghaltan

meri guftar men hai subh ki nuzhat ghaltan

mere ashar men hai phulon ki nikhat ghaltan

ruh-e-gulzar huun main jan-e-gulistan huun main

laakh majbur huun main zauq-e-khud-arai se

dil hai bezar ab is ishrat-e-tanhai se

aankh majbur nahin hai miri binai se

mahram-e-dard-o-gham-e-alam-e-insan huun main

kyuun na chahun ki har ik haath men paimana ho

yaas o mahrumi o majburi ik afsana ho

aam ab faiz-e-mai-o-saqi-o-mai-khana ho

rind huun aur jigar-gosha-e-rindan huun main

ab ye arman ki badal jaae jahan ka dastur

ek ik aankh men ho aish o faraghat ka surur

ek ik jism pe ho atlas o kam-khvab o samor

ab ye baat aur hai khud chak-gareban huun main
