Unhen Mujhse Shikayat Hai

unhen mujh se shikayat hai ki main maazi men jiiti huun

mire ashar men aaseb hain guzre zamanon ke

vo kahte hain ki yaden saae ki manind mere saath rahti hain

ye sach hai is se kab inkar hai mujh ko

main aksar jagte din men bhi ankhen muund leti huun

koi surat koi avaz koi zaiqa ya lams jab jaadu jagata hai

to gard-alud mina-taur tasviren achanak bolne lagti hain natak-manch sajta hai

kisi tuute hue sanduq men rakkhe hue

bosida maḳhtute se koi dastan tamsil ban jaati hai

ji uthte hain sab kirdar maazi ke

sipahi badshah ḳhilat navadir raqs-o-mausiqi

kisi ke paanv men paael dhanak anchal

kisi shamshir ki bijli ghani barsat ki badli

kisi bara-dari men raag dipak ka

kisi sehn-e-gulistan men kadam ke ped par baithi hui chidiyan

achanak jaag jaati hain

kisi gumnam qasbe men koi tuuti hui mehrab ḳhasta-hal-devdhi ki jhalak

maadum kar deti hai hotel chae-ḳhane bas ke adde Dher kuude ke

kai sadiyan guzar jaati hain sar se

aur koi gum-gashta shahr-e-raftagan bedar hota hai

isi manzar ka hissa ban ke main tasvir ho jaati huun kho jaati huun maazi men

men aksar abna-e-vaqt par kaghaz ki naav Daal deti huun

to paani apna rasta mod deta hai

main jab chahun

saloni sanvli nat-khat madhur yaden utha la.un ladakpan ke gharondon se

main jab chahun to kaali kothari men qaid

ranjida pasheman zaḳhm-ḳhurda-saaton biite dinon ko pyaar se chhu kar

dilasa duun thapak kar loriyan duun

ḳhuub ro.uun ḳhuub ro.uun shant ho ja.un

ye maazi mera maazi hai

faqat mere tasarruf men hai

meri milkiyyat hai mera virsa hai

na mera haal par bas hai

aur aane vaala kal bhi kis ne dekha hai
