Kab Nigah Uski Ishwa-Bar Nahin

kab nigah us ki ishva-bar nahin

kab nigahen karishma-zar nahin

ghair par rahm ye kise aaya

tum to maana sitam-shi.ar nahin

yaan fughan se lahu tapakta hai

main nava-sanj-e-shakhsar nahin

kulfat-e-dil se hai jo aluda

gauhar-e-ashk abdar nahin

ham hain aise farakh-ru darvesh

mahfil-e-padshah se aar nahin

na jala khana-e-adu to na hans

shola-e-ah hai sharar nahin

baagh be-sarfa chal ke kya kiije

jin se thi baagh ki bahar nahin

baada behuda pi ke kya kiije

ab vo saaqi nahin vo yaar nahin

ai munajjam abas ye nadani

tu kuchh andaza-dan-e-kar nahin

tu ravish-yab-e-mehr-o-mah ghalat

tu ada-sanj-e-rozgar nahin

vaqif asrar-e-asmani se

juz harifan-e-bada-khvar nahin

chadh gae hain kisi ke phir dam par

‘shefta’ aaj be-qarar nahin
