Na Bhul Kar Bhi Tamanna-E-Rang-O-Bu Karte

na bhuul kar bhi tamanna-e-rang-o-bu karte

chaman ke phuul agar teri aarzu karte

janab-e-shaikh pahunch jaate hauz-e-kausar tak

agar sharab se mai-khane men vazu karte

masarrat aah tu basti hai kin sitaron men

zamin pe umr hui teri justuju karte

ayagh-e-bada men aa kar vo khud chhalak padta

gar us ke mast zara aur haao hu karte

unhen mafar na tha iqrar-e-ishq se lekin

haya ko zid thi ki vo pas-e-abru karte

pukar uthta vo aa kar dilon ki dhadkan men

ham apne siine men gar us ki justuju karte

gham-e-zamana ne majbur kar diya varna

ye aarzu thi ki bas teri aarzu karte

giran tha saqi-e-dauran pe ek saghar bhi

to kis umiid pe ham khvahish-e-subu karte

junun-e-ishq ki tasir to ye thi ‘akhtar’

ki ham nahin vo khud izhar-e-arzu karte
