Koi Arman Talash-E-Dost Ka Kyun Dil Mein Rah Jata

koi arman talash-e-dost ka kyuun dil men rah jaata

ghubar apna agar gard-e-rah-e-manzil men rah jaata

nahin maalum kis muddat se ḳhanjar tishna-e-ḳhun tha

koi ḳhatra lahu ka kyuun tan-e-bismil men rah jaata

safai kab thi mumkin ye ghubar-e-dil vo kafir hai

mire dil se nikalta bhi to us ke dil men rah jaata

jala aur jal ke soz-e-rashk se dil bujh gaya fauran

agar hota charagh-o-shama us mahfil men rah jaata

taassuf hai ghubar-e-qais ki parvaz-e-hasrat par

lipat kar kaash thoda parda-e-mahmil men rah jaata

na deta gar sahara kuchh umid-e-vasl ka tufan

shanavar bahr-e-gham ka hasrat-e-sahil men rah jaata

is aine men gar vo dekh lete ru-e-anvar ko

to kyuun itna bada dhabba mah-e-kamil men rah jaata

na milta muddaa-e-dil diram milta jo munim se

magar ik daagh ban kar vo kaf-e-sail men rah jaata

nishan us ka kahin milta suragh us ka kahin lagta

to apna paanv kyuun thak kar rah-e-manzil men rah jaata

‘nazar’ ham ko ilaqa sher se kya par ye hasrat hai

na rahte ham to apna zikr us mahfil men rah jaata
