Yaron Ke Ikhlas Se Pahle dil Ka Mere Ye Haal Na Tha

yaron ke iḳhlas se pahle dil ka mire ye haal na tha

ab vo chaknachur paḌa hai jis shishe men baal na tha

insan aa kar nai dagar par kho baiTha hai hosh-o-havas

pahle bhi behosh tha lekin aisa bhi bad-hal na tha

gulshan gulshan virani hai jangal jangal sannaTa

haae vo din jab har manzil men shorish-e-gham ka kaal na tha

kyuun re divane shahr yahi hai ik ik pal bhari hai jahan

apne virane men ai dil ji ka ye janjal na tha

ham jo luTe us shahr men ja kar dukh logon ko kyuun pahuncha

apni nazar thi apna dil tha koi paraya maal na tha

teri ḳhaak pe raushan raushan ‘aḳhtar’ jaise sitare the

tujh sa ai mahran ki vaadi koi buland-iqbal na tha
