Nala-E-Firaq

ja basa maghrib men akhir ai makan tera makin

aah! mashriq ki pasand aai na us ko sarzamin

aa gaya aaj is sadaqat ka mire dil ko yaqin

zulmat-e-shab se ziya-e-roz-e-furqat kam nahin

”taz aghosh-e-vida’ish dagh-e-hairat chida ast

ham-chu sham-e-kushta dar-chashm-e-nigah khvabida ast”

kushta-e-uzlat huun abadi men ghabrata huun main

shahr se sauda ki shiddat men nikal jaata huun main

yad-e-ayyam-e-salaf se dil ko tadpata huun main

bahr-e-taskin teri janib daudta aata huun main

aankh ko manus hai tere dar-o-divar se

ajnabiyyat hai magar paida miri raftar se

zarra mere dil ka khurshid-ashna hone ko tha

aaina tuuta hua alam-numa hone ko tha

nakhl meri arzuon ka hara hone ko tha

aah! kya jaane koi main kya se kya hone ko thaa!

abr-e-rahmat daman-az-gulzar-e-man barchid-o-raft

andkai bar-ghuncha haae aarzu barid-o-raft

tu kahan hai ai kalim-e-zarra-e-sina-e-ilm!

thi tiri mauj-e-nafas bad-e-nashat-afza-e-ilm

ab kahan vo shauq-e-rah-paimai-e-sahra-e-ilm

tere dam se tha hamare sar men bhi sauda-e-ilm

”shor-e-laila ko ki baz-araish-e-sauda kunad

khak-e-majnun-ra ghubar-e-khatir-e-sahra kunad”

khol dega dasht-e-vahshat uqda-e-tadir ko

tod kar pahunchunga main punjab ki zanjir ko

dekhta hai dida-e-hairan tiri tasvir ko

kya tasalli ho magar girvida-e-taqrir ko

”tab-e-goyai nahin rakhta dahan tasvir ka

khamushi kahte hain jis ko hai sukhan tasvir kaa”
