Mera Adam Wajud Bhi Kya Zar-Nigar Tha

merā adam vajūd bhī kyā zar-nigār thā

chāroñ taraf ḳhalā meñ chamaktā ġhubār thā

sāhil banī nigāh kī had fāsle miTe

girdāb-e-mauj-e-dūd makāñ kā hisār thā

pī kar lahū siyāh huī kisht-e-ārzū

kyā dekhte ki ḳhaak kā da.avā bahār thā

maujoñ meñ Dūbtī huī surḳhī thī shaam kī

dil dasht-e-pur-sukūt thā dariyā qarār thā

ik bojh uThā.e shaam ko lauTā huuñ maiñ niDhāl

maiñ apne dām-e-shauq meñ kyā ḳhud shikār thā

dil kā surāġh kyā ki jahāñ tak nigāh kī

nairañg-e-naqsh-e-rafta-e-pā-e-farār thā

maiñ ik shajar sukūt thā aur merī chhāñv meñ

girtā huā sadāoñ kā ik ābshār thā

ḳhurshīd-o-māh mere liye ik fasāna the

tārīk jañgaloñ kā maiñ lail-o-nahār thā

sho.ale darāz dast the aur mere sāmne

ḳhurshīd shām-e-dasht kā tārīk ġhaar thā

maiñ ḳhāk-e-dil bikher rahā thā havā meñ ‘zeb’

aur is se be-ḳhabar thā ki us meñ sharār thā
