Wasl Ki Shab Bhi Khafa Wo But-E-Maghrur Raha

vasl ki shab bhi ḳhafa vo but-e-maghrur raha

hausla dil ka jo tha dil men ba-dastur raha

umr-e-rafta ke talaf hone ka aaya to ḳhayal

lekin ik dam ki talafi ka na maqdur raha

jama kis din na hue mausam-e-gul men mai-kash

roz hangama tah-e-saya-e-angur raha

gardish-e-baḳht kahan se hamen laai hai kahan

manzilon vadi-e-ghurbat se vatan duur raha

rast-bazi kar agar namvari hai darkar

daar se ḳhalq men avaz-e-mansur raha

vo to hai charḳh chaharum pe ye pach mohalle par

sach hai iisa se bhi baala tira mazdur raha

fasl-e-gul aai gai sehn-e-chaman men sau baar

apne sar men tha jo sauda vo ba-dastur raha

jalva-e-barq-e-tajalli nazar aaya na kabhi

muddaton ja ke vahan men shajar-e-tur raha

zulf o ruḳh donon hain jaane se javani ke ḳharab

mushk vo mushk na kafur vo kafur raha

ghol-e-sahra ne mira saath na chhoda shab bhar

le ke mashal kabhi nazdik kabhi duur raha

ham bhi maujud the kal mahfil-e-janan men ‘amir’

raat ko der talak aap ka mazkur raha
