wajid-ali-shah-akhtar

Ja Baithte Ho Ghairon Mein Ghairat Nahin Aati

ja baithte ho ghairon men ghairat nahin aati

us vaqt miri jaan muravvat nahin aati

nazdik bhi ja kar na mila parda-nashin se

ja duur ho ai dil tujhe chahat nahin aati

ik ham hain ki hain nam-e-mubarak pe tasadduq

tum ko to kabhi dekh ke ulfat nahin aati

ya ranj hai ya hijr hai ya huzn hai ya gham

kuchh shakl bana kar to musibat nahin aati

kya rah-ravi yaar ki sikhe hai tu is saal

is tarah gai jism se taqat nahin aati

har shai ke liye zarf hai darkar jahan men

kam-zarf ke nazdik to sarvat nahin aati

kalkatte ne nabud kiya khvab-e-khushi ko

pal-bhar mujhe is shahr men rahat nahin aati

rahta huun khayal-e-rukh-e-zeba men shab-o-roz

ai jaan tasavvur men vo surat nahin aati

khilte hain gul-e-sher har ik roz mah-o-sal

‘akhtar’ mire gulzar pe aafat nahin aati
