Sham Ke Waqt Charaghon Si Jalai Hui Main

shaam ke vaqt charaghon si jalai hui main

ghup andheron ki munderon pe sajai hui main

dekhne valon ki nazron ko lagun saada varaq

teri tahrir men huun aise chhupai hui main

khaak kar ke mujhe sahra men udane vaale

dekh raqsan huun sar-e-dasht udaai hui main

kya andheron ki hifazat ke liye rakkhi huun

apni dahliz pe khud aap jalai hui main

log afsana samajh kar mujhe sunte hi rahe

dar-haqiqat huun haqiqat se banai hui main

meri ankhon men samaya hua koi chehra

aur us chehre ki ankhon men samai hui main

kitni hairan hai duniya ki muqaddar ki nahin

apni tadbir ke hathon huun banai hui main

mere andaz pe ta-der ‘alina’ vo hansa

zikr men us ke thi yuun khud ko bhulai hui main
