Unki Chashm-E-Mast Mein Poshida Ek Mai-KHana Tha

un kī chashm-e-mast meñ poshīda ik mai-ḳhāna thā

jaam thā sāġhar thā mai thī shīsha thā paimāna thā

kyā faqat merā hī ik chhalkā huā paimāna thā

jo bhī un kī bazm meñ thā hosh se begāna thā

iḳhtilāf-e-shakl ne dhokā nigāhoñ ko diyā

varna jo kuchh sham-e-sozāñ thī vahī parvāna thā

kis tarah chhuptā mirī TuuTī huī tauba kā raaz

ek maiñ tanhā na thā maiḳhāne kā mai-ḳhāna thā

yaad itnā rah gayā hai qissa-e-ahd-e-shabāb

ik ḳhumār-e-be-ḳhudī thā aap se begāna thā

zard chehra band lab āñkhoñ meñ aañsū dil pe haath

be-zabānī kī zabāñ thī aur mirā afsāna thā

husn kī duniyā ke saath un kī taraf duniyā-e-ishq

aur yahāñ dil hī na thā aur thā bhī to dīvāna thā

jis kī pāmālī meñ muzmar ābiyārī thī ‘vaqār’

maiñ riyāz-e-dahr meñ vo sabza-e-begāna thā
