Khwab-Mahal Mein Kaun Sar-e-Sham Aa Kar Patthar Marta Hai

ḳhvab-mahal men kaun sar-e-sham aa kar patthar marta hai

roz ik taaza kanch ka bartan haath se gir kar TuTta hai

makḌi ne darvaze pe jaale duur talak bun rakkhe hain

phir bhi koi guzre dinon ki oT se andar jhankta hai

shor sa uThta rahta hai divaren bolti rahti hain

shaam abhi tak aa nahin paati koi khilaune toḌta hai

avval-e-shab ki lori bhi kab kaam kisi ke aati hai

dil vo bacha apni sada par kachchi niind se jagta hai

andar bahar ki avazen ik nuqte par simTi hain

hota hai galiyon men vavela mera lahu jab bolta hai

meri sanson ki larzish manzar ka hissa banti hai

dekhta huun main khiḌki se jab shaḳh pe patta kanpta hai

mere sirhane koi baiTha dharas deta rahta hai

nabz pe haath bhi rakhta hai TuuTe dhage bhi joḌta hai

badal uThe ya ki na uThe barish bhi ho ya ki na ho

main jab bhigne lagta huun vo sar par chhatri tanta hai

vaqt guzarne ke ham-rah bahut kuchh sikha ‘aḳhtar’ ne

nange badan ko kirnon ke pairahan se ab dhanpta hai
