Mai-Kade Mein Aaj Ek Duniya Ko Izn-E-Am Tha

mai-kade men aaj ik duniya ko izn-e-am tha

daur-e-jam-e-be-khudi begana-e-ayyam tha

ruuh larzan aankh mahv-e-did dil ka naam tha

ishq ka aghaz bhi shaista-e-anjam tha

rafta rafta ishq ko tasvir-e-gham kar hi diya

husn bhi kitna kharab-e-gardish-e-ayyam tha

gham-kade men dahr ke yuun to andhera tha magar

ishq ka dagh-e-siyah-bakhti charagh-e-sham tha

teri duzdida-nigahi yuun to na-mahsus thi

haan magar daftar ka daftar husn ka paigham tha

shaaq ahl-e-shauq par thiin us ki ismat-dariyan

sach hai lekin husn dar-parda bahut bad-nam tha

mahv the gulzar-e-ranga-rang ke naqsh-o-nigar

vahshaten thi dil ke sannate the dasht-e-sham tha

be-khata tha husn har jaur-o-jafa ke baad bhi

ishq ke sar ta-abad ilzam hi ilzam tha

yuun gareban-chak duniya men nahin hota koi

har khula gulshan shahid-e-gardish-e-ayyam tha

dekh husn-e-sharmagin dar-parda kya laaya hai rang

ishq rusva-e-jahan badnam hi badnam tha

raunaq-e-bazm-e-jahan tha go dil-e-gham-ghin ‘firaq’

sard tha afsurda tha mahrum tha nakam tha
