Karti Hai Mujhe Qatl Mere Yar Ki Raftar

karti hai mujhe qatl mire yaar ki raftar

talvar ki talvar hai raftar ki raftar

kaj aisi na thi aage mire yaar ki raftar

sikha hai magar charkh-e-sitam-gar ki raftar

sar girte hain kat kat ke vo rakhta hai jahan paanv

sikhi hai magar yaar ne talvar ki raftar

gardish hai tiri nargis-e-bimar ko din-rat

dekhi nahin aisi kisi bimar ki raftar

talti nahin zulfon ke tasavvur ki tarah se

hai turfa judai ki shab-e-tar ki raftar

laghzish na ho kyuun kar rah-e-din men mujhe zahid

yaad aa gai us kafir-e-mai-khvar ki raftar

zalim tire kuche se qadam uth nahin sakta

kyuun kar na chalun saya-e-divar ki raftar

kya maar ko nisbat tire gesu ke chalan se

hai saya-e-gesu men sanam maar ki raftar

moti evaz-e-naqsh-e-qadam girte hain ‘nasikh’

aisi hai miri kilk-e-guhar-bar ki raftar
