Jo Shakhs Muddaton Mere Shaidaiyon Mein Tha

jo shakhs muddaton mire shaidaiyon men tha

aafat ke vaqt vo bhi tamashaiyon men tha

us ka ilaaj koi masiha na kar saka

jo zakhm meri ruuh ki gahraiyon men tha

vo the bahut qarib to thi garmi-e-hayat

shola hujum-e-shauq ka purvaiyon men tha

koi bhi saaz un ki tadap ko na pa saka

vo soz vo gudaz jo shahnaiyon men tha

bazm-e-tasavvurat men yadon ki raushni

aalam ajiib raat ki tanhaiyon men tha

us bazm men chhidi jo kabhi jan-dahi ki baat

us dam hamara zikr bhi saudaiyon men tha

kuchh vaz-e-ehtiyat se ‘bano’ the ham bhi duur

kuchh doston ka haath bhi rusvaiyon men tha
