Khair Yunhi Sahi Taskin Ho Kahin Thodi Si

ḳhair yunhi sahi taskin ho kahin thodi si

”han” to kahte ho magar saath ”nahin” thodi si

hal-e-dil sun ke mira barsar-e-rahmat to hain kuchh

abhi baaqi hai magar chin-e-jabin thodi si

hui jaati hai sahar aisa bhi ghabrana kya

raat gar hai bhi to ai mah-jabin thodi si

jam-e-mai dekh ke labrez kis andaz ke saath

us ka kahna ki nahin, itni nahin, thodi si

be-ḳhudi ye dam-e-ruḳhsat thi ki sab kuchh bhula

un ki baten bhi mujhe yaad rahin thodi si

ab ye paigham kisi ka koi le kar jaae

abhi lab par hai mire jan-e-hazin thodi si

yuun to tum roz hi kahte ho sabhi kuchh mujh se

aaj ki baat hui zehn-nashin thodi si

un se kuchh kah na saka main shab-e-gham ki baten

go ki bhula tha magar yaad bhi thiin thodi si

bosa to us lab-e-shirin se kahan milta hai

galiyan bhi milin ham ko to milin thodi si

ab to sab ka tire kuche hi men maskan thahra

yahi abad hai duniya men zamin thodi si

utthe jaate hain hamin aap na baithen ḳhamosh

aap ki baat samajhte hain hamin thodi si

yaad kuchh aa ke ye halat hui meri ki na puchh

pichhli ghadiyan shab-e-gham ki jo rahin thodi si

sub.h tak shaam se vo go ki rahe paas mire

hasraten dil ki magar rah hi gaiin thodi si

koste kya ho abhi hote hain ham shadi-e-marg

gar mile dafn ko kuche men zamin thodi si

sab mira haal vahan kaise kahega qasid!

tu to sunta hai miri baat nahin thodi si

daulat-e-faqr se sab ho gai taskin ‘nizam’

ab karen kya talab-e-taj-o-nagin thodi si
