Raat Ke Padaw Par

raat ne apni mehrban bahen phaila diin

aur siskiyon ka javar bhata tarikiyon se lipat gaya

tasviron ko pahchanne vaale dilon ke dipak bujhte gae

aur un saari anjan tasviron ke darmiyan

hairan ankhen hain

aur siskiyon ka javar bhata

siskiyan jinhen zindagi ke tavil dinon ne panah na di

aur kirnon par bhagte hue

kisi ne nahin socha

nasheb men ghatiyon ke darmiyan raat thaharti hai

kam aql musafir qadmon ki samajh men na aaya

ki zindagi charindon aur hadd-e-nigah tak phaili ghaas ka muahida nahin hai

avaz ki samten mutaayyan ho gaiin

aur taqlid ke aaseb lafzon ke pak-daman sayyaron ko raundte chale gae

anthak mehnaton ki samajh men kuchh na aaya

yahan tak ki soch ki sunahri raushaniyan thak kar gir paden

nasheb aur nasheb ki janib

junun ka nasheb

jahan raat thaharti hai

aur pur-asrariyat ka saneha

jahan sarabon ke asrar khul gae

aur jahan musafir qadmon aur anthak mehnaton aur siskiyon ke javar bhata ki dosti hai

ye raat ka padav hai jahan

ankhon ki tamam an-ginat sadken

ḳhuda hafiz ki bhuul bhulayyon men gum ho jaati hain
