Pas-Manzar

kis ki yaad chamak utthi hai dhundle khake hue ujagar

yunhi chand purani qabren khod raha huun tanha baitha

kahin kisi ka maas na haDDi kahin kisi ka ruup na chhaya

kuchh katbon par dhundle dhundle naam khude hain main jivan-bhar

in katbon in qabron hi ko apne man ka bhed bana kar

mustaqbil aur haal ko chode, dukh sukh sab men liye phira huun

maazi ki ghanghor ghata men chupka baitha soch raha huun

kis ki yaad chamak utthi hai, dhundle khake hue ujagar?

baitha qabren khod raha huun, huuk si ban kar ek ik murat

dard sa ban kar ek ik saya, jaag rahe hain duur kahin se

avazen si kuchh aati hain, ”guzre the ik baar yahin se”

hairat ban kar dekh rahi hai, har jani-pahchani surat

goya jhuut hain ye avazen, koi mel na tha in sab se

jin ka pyaar kisi ke dil men apne ghaao chhod gaya hai

jin ka pyaar kisi ke dil se saare rishte tod gaya hai

aur vo pagal in rishton ko baitha jod raha hai kab se!
