Raat-Bhar Jo Samne Aankhon Ke Wo Mah-Para Tha

rat-bhar jo samne ankhon ke vo mah-para tha

ghairat-e-mahtab apna daman-e-nazzara tha

ban gae girdab sail-e-ashk jaae gard-bad

abr-e-tar ki tarah main jis dasht men avara tha

tu ne ankhen pher liin yaan kaam akhir ho gaya

tair-e-jan paeban-e-rishta-e-nazzara tha

shab tire partav se labrez-e-latafat tha chaman

har gul-e-shabbu se jaari nuur ka favvara tha

mujh ko dam lene ki bhi fursat na duniya men mili

roz-e-maulid shadiyana kuuch ka naqqara tha

khurrami hoti hai bedardon ko sair-e-bagh men

ham ne jis gul par nazar ki ik gul-e-sad-para tha

khvab men bhi yaar tak mumkin na tha dakhl-e-raqib

jin dinon apna khayal akhbar ka harkara tha

shab nazar ki main ne furqat men jo su-e-asman

azhdaha thi kahkashan aqrab har ik sayyara tha

ai ajal di tu ne bar-e-jism se aa kar najat

kab se meri piith par ye khaak ka pushtara tha

khauf sab jaata raha dil se azab-e-hijr ka

naqd-e-jan dena gunah-e-ishq ka kaffara tha

kahte hain maara gaya vo jurm-e-tegh-e-naz se

kucha-e-qatil men ‘nasikh’ naam jo bechara gaya
