Yan Khak Ka Bistar Hai Gale Mein Kafani Hai

yaan khaak ka bistar hai gale men kafani hai

vaan haath men aina hai gul pairahani hai

hathon se hamen ishq ke din raat nahin chain

fariyad o fughan din ko hai shab nara-zani hai

hushyar ho ghaflat se tu ghafil na ho ai dil

apni to nazar men ye jagah be-vatani hai

kuchh kah nahin sakta huun zaban se ki zara dekh

kya jaae hai jis jaae na kuchh dam-zadani hai

mizhgan pe mire lakht-e-jigar hi nahin yaaro

is taar se vo rishta aqiq-e-yamni hai

likh aur ghazal qafiye ko pher ‘zafar’ tu

ab taba ki dariya ki tiri mauj-zani hai
