Umid-E-Mehr Par Ek Hasrat-E-Dil Hum Bhi Rakhte The

umid-e-mehr par ik hasrat-e-dil ham bhi rakhte the

tamanna vasl ki ai mah-e-kamil ham bhi rakhte the

kabhi gulzar dagh-e-ishq se dil ham bhi rakhte hai

kabhi ik taaza gulshan ai anadil ham bhi rakhte the

kisi din to vo bahr-e-husn aa kar zeb-bar hota

ki aghosh-e-tamanna shakl-e-sahil ham bhi rakhte the

alag tu bazm se uth kar jo sun leta to kah dete

ki kuchh kuchh iltija ai zeb-e-mahfil ham bhi rakhte the

hamen be-maut kyuun maara ajal tu kis liye aai

hava-e-bosa-e-shamshir-e-qatil ham bhi rakhte the

hamare dil ka uqda kyuun na ai ghuncha-dahan khola

havas bose ki thi thodi si mushkil ham bhi rakhte the

karen ab kya kahan DhunDhen ganvaya ku-e-gesu men

kabhi yadash-ba-ḳhair ai hamdamo dil ham bhi rakhte the

hamara imtihan o qadar-andaz lazim tha

dil-e-majruh-o-muztar jan-e-bismil ham bhi rakhte the

kiya pamal us ko kyuun na tum ne saath sabze ke

tumhare zer-e-pa ai jan-e-jan dil ham bhi rakhte the

nahin ab kasrat-e-dagh-e-junun se laeq-e-hadiya

kabhi dil peshkash karne ke qabil ham bhi rakhte the

haqarat se na dekho aaj ham ko ai pari-ruyo

kabhi tum sa koi zohra-shamail ham bhi rakhte the

ajab hai kya hui ulfat vo ai jaan donon janib ki

yahi dil tum bhi rakhte the yahi dil ham bhi rakhte the

yunhi shab bhar jala karte the yad-e-shoala-e-ruḳh men

yahi sozish kabhi ai sham-e-mahfil ham bhi rakhte the

lab-e-jan-baḳhsh par kya fauq dete chashm-e-fattan ko

ki ‘anjum’ kuchh tamiz-e-haqq-o-batil ham bhi rakhte the
