Kab Dil Shikast-Gan Se Kar Arz-E-Haal Aaya

kab dil shikast-gan se kar arz-e-hal aaya

hai be-sada vo chini jis men ki baal aaya

siine se main dua ko laaya jo shab labon tak

kahne lagi ijabat kidhar khayal aaya

kaunain tak mili thi jis dil ki mujh ko qimat

qismat ki yak nigah par ja us ko Daal aaya

bakhshish pe do jahan ke aai thi himmat-e-dahr

lekin na yaan zaban tak harf-e-saval aaya

nazan na ho tu is par gar tujh ko sang men se

gauhar nikalne ka kasb o kamal aaya

arbab-e-fahm aage vo sahab-e-hunar hai

kiina kisi ke dil se jis ko nikal aaya

dair-e-kharab men kal ik mast ki zaban par

ye sher us jagah ke kya hasb-e-hal aaya

aamal dekh tere mai sharm se araq hai

ai mohtasib tujhe bhi kuchh infial aaya

milne ka ek dam bhi yaan zoaf-e-dil hai maane

ukta ke uth gaya vo tab main bahal aaya

nakhl-e-hayat apna gulshan men baghban ne

boya to tha havas kar lekin na paal aaya

iksir hai to kya hai vo musht-e-khak ‘sauda’

khatir pe jab kisi ki jis se malal aaya
