Kuchh Khaar Hi Nahin Mere Daman Ke Yar Hain

kuchh ḳhaar hi nahin mire daman ke yaar hain

gardan men tauq bhi to ladakpan ke yaar hain

siina ho kushtagan-e-mohabbat ka ya gala

donon ye tere ḳhanjar-e-ahan ke yaar hain

ḳhatir hamari karta hai dair-o-haram men kaun

ham to na shaiḳh ke na barahman ke yaar hain

kya puchhta hai mujh se nishan sail-o-barq ka

donon qadim se mire ḳhirman ke yaar hain

kya garm hain ki kahte hain ḳhuban-e-lucknow

london ko jaaen vo jo firangan ke yaar hain

vo dushmani karen to karen iḳhtiyar hai

ham to adu ke dost hain dushman ke yaar hain

kuchh is chaman men sabza-e-begana ham nahin

nargis ke dost lala-o-sausan ke yaar hain

kante hain jitne vadi-e-ghurbat ke ai junun

sab astin ke jeb ke daman ke yaar hain

gum-gashtagi men raah batata hai ham ko kaun

hai ḳhizr jin ka naam vo rahzan ke yaar hain

chalte hain shauq-e-barq-e-tajalli men kya hai ḳhauf

chite tamam vadi-e-aiman ke yaar hain

piiri mujhe chhudati hai ahbab se ‘amir’

dandan nahin ye mere ladakpan ke yaar hain
