Pani Shajar Pe Phul Bana Dekhta Raha

paani shajar pe phuul bana dekhta raha

aur dasht men babul bana dekhta raha

ayyam ke ghubar se nikla to der tak

main raston ko dhuul bana dekhta raha

tu bazuon men bhar ke gulabon ko so rahi

main bhi khizan ka phuul bana dekhta raha

konpal se ek lab se faramosh ho ke main

kis guftugu men tuul bana dekhta raha

bada-kashon ke khuun se chhalakta tha mai-kada

khamiyaza-e-malul bana dekhta raha

pichhle khanDar se agle khanDar tak tha intizar

main aatma ki bhuul bana dekhta raha

nam-o-numud haft-jihat saunp kar mujhe

suraj dhanak men dhuul bana dekhta raha

tha sabza-e-kashida darakhton ke darmiyan

na-qabil-e-qubul bana dekhta raha

tajsim-e-nau-ba-nau ka karishma tha aur hi

main apna sa usuul bana dekhta raha

lauh-o-qalam ki khair-segali ke vaste

shiraza-e-nuzul bana dekhta raha

bante hi mit gaya tha khabar hi na ho saki

main naqsh ko fuzul bana dekhta raha

chutki se badh ke tha na hajam phir bhi main ‘naved’

ameze men hulul bana dekhta raha
