Kisi Ka Yun To Hua Kaun Umr Bhar Phir Bhi

kisi ka yuun to hua kaun umr bhar phir bhi

ye husn o ishq to dhoka hai sab magar phir bhi

hazar baar zamana idhar se guzra hai

nai nai si hai kuchh teri rahguzar phir bhi

kahun ye kaise idhar dekh ya na dekh udhar

ki dard dard hai phir bhi nazar nazar phir bhi

ḳhusha ishara-e-paiham zahe sukut-e-nazar

daraz ho ke fasana hai muḳhtasar phir bhi

jhapak rahi hain zaman o makan ki bhi ankhen

magar hai qafila amada-e-safar phir bhi

shab-e-firaq se aage hai aaj meri nazar

ki kat hi jaegi ye sham-e-be-sahar phir bhi

kahin yahi to nahin kashif-e-hayat-o-mamat

ye husn o ishq ba-zahir hain be-ḳhabar phir bhi

palat rahe hain gharib-ul-vatan palatna tha

vo kucha ru-kash-e-jannat ho ghar hai ghar phir bhi

luta hua chaman-e-ishq hai nigahon ko

dikha gaya vahi kya kya gul o samar phir bhi

ḳharab ho ke bhi socha kiye tire mahjur

yahi ki teri nazar hai tiri nazar phir bhi

ho be-niyaz-e-asar bhi kabhi tiri mitti

vo kimiya hi sahi rah gai kasar phir bhi

lipat gaya tira divana garche manzil se

udi udi si hai ye ḳhak-e-rahguzar phir bhi

tiri nigah se bachne men umr guzri hai

utar gaya rag-e-jan men ye neshtar phir bhi

gham-e-firaq ke kushton ka hashr kya hoga

ye sham-e-hijr to ho jaegi sahar phir bhi

fana bhi ho ke giran-bari-e-hayat na puchh

uthae uth nahin sakta ye dard-e-sar phir bhi

sitam ke rang hain har iltifat-e-pinhan men

karam-numa hain tire jaur sar-ba-sar phir bhi

ḳhata-muaf tira afv bhi hai misl-e-saza

tiri saza men hai ik shan-e-dar-guzar phir bhi

agarche be-ḳhudi-e-ishq ko zamana hua

‘firaq’ karti rahi kaam vo nazar phir bhi
