Zat Ke Karb Ko Lafzon Mein Dabae Rakkha

zaat ke karb ko lafzon men dabae rakkha

mez par teri kitabon ko sajae rakkha

tu ne ik shaam jo aane ka kiya tha vaada

main ne din-rat charaghon ko jalae rakkha

kis saliqe se ḳhayalon ko zaban de de kar

mujh ko us shaḳhs ne baton men lagae rakha

main vo siita ki jo lachhman ke hisaron men rahi

ham vo jogi ki alakh phir bhi jagae rakkha

shayad aa jaae kisi rose vo sajda karne

isi ummid pe anchal ko bichhae rakkha

chudiyan rakh na sakin meri namazon ka bharam

phir bhi hathon ko duaon men uthae rakkha

jaane kyuun aa gai phir yaad usi mausam ki

jis ne ‘shabnam’ ko havaon se bachae rakkha
