Jawani Yaad Hum Ko Apni Phir Be-Ikhtiyar Aai

javani yaad ham ko apni phir be-ikhtiyar aai

hua divanon men jab ghul bahar aai bahar aai

hua tha marg se ghafil main kis din josh-e-vahshat men

saba kyuun le ke mere samne musht-e-ghubar aai

dikhae ranj piiri ke ajal tere taghaful ne

tujhe aana tha pahle aah tu anjam kaar aai

hamare tausan-e-umr-e-ravan ke tez karne ko

shamim-e-zulf dosh-e-bad-e-sarsar par savar aai

na paaya vaqt ai zahid koi main ne ibadat ka

shab-e-hijran hui akhir to subh-e-intizar aai

na kuchh khatra khizan ka hai na ehsan-e-bahar us par

adam se apni shakh-e-arzu be-barg-o-bar aai

hamari dekhiyo ghaflat na samjhe vaae nadani

hamen do din ke bahlane ko umr-e-be-madar aai

jo nang-e-ishq hain vo bul-havas fariyad karte hain

lab-e-zakhm-e-‘havas’ se kab sada-e-zinhar aai
