akhtar-shirani

Na Saz-O-Mutrib Na Jam-O-Saqi Na Wo Bahaar-E-Chaman Hai Baqi

na saz-o-mutrib na jam-o-saqi na vo bahar-e-chaman hai baaqi

nigah-e-sham-e-sahar ke parde ye naqsha-e-anjuman hai baaqi

zamana guzra vo yasman-bu juda hui ham-kanar ho kar

magar abhi tak hamare pahlu men nikhat-e-yasman hai baaqi

bhula chuki dil se sham-e-ghurbat har ek naqsha har ek surat

hamari ankhon men lekin ab tak farogh-e-subh-e-vatan hai baaqi

zamana badla miti javani na vo mohabbat na zindagani

bas ek bholi si yaad hai jo ba-rang-e-dagh-e-kuhan hai baaqi

mita diye be-sutun charkh-e-kuhan ne shirin-laqa hazaron

magar mohabbat ke lab par ab bhi tarana-e-kohkan hai baaqi

habab-asa muhit-e-hasti men jo hai mitne ko ban raha hai

hai inqalab ik numud aisi jo zer-e-charkh-e-kuhan hai baaqi

gham-e-zamana ki sakhtiyon se hui hai pamal tab-e-‘akhtar’

na vo nishat-e-kuhan hai baaqi na vo mazaq-e-sukhan hai baaqi
