Kyun

tum jo qatil na masiha thahre

na ilaj-e-shab-e-hijran na gham-e-charagaran

na koi dushna-e-pinhan

na kahin khanjar-e-sam-aluda

na qarib-e-rag-e-jan

tum to us ahd ke insan ho jise

vadi-e-marg men jiine ka hunar aata tha

muddaton pahle bhi jab rakht-e-safar bandha tha

haath jab dast-e-dua the apne

paanv zanjir ke halqon se kate jaate the

lafz taqsir the

avaz pe taaziren thiin

tum ne maasum jasarat ki thi

ik tamanna ki ibadat ki thi

pa barahna the tumhare

yahi bosida qaba thi tan par

aur yahi surkh lahu ke dhabbe

jinhen tahrir-e-gul-o-lala kaha tha tum ne

har nazzara pe nazzargi-e-jan tum ko

har gali kucha-e-mahbub nazar aai thi

raat ko zulf se tabir kiya tha tum ne

tum bhala kyuun rasan-o-dar tak aa pahunche ho

tum na mansur na iisa thahre
