Zer-E-Lab

kas bojh se jism tutta hai

itna to kada safar nahin tha

vo chaar qadam ka fasla kya

phir raah se be-ḳhabar nahin tha

lekin ye thakan ye ladkhadahat

ye haal to umr bhar nahin tha

aghaz-e-safar men jab chale the

kab ham ne koi diya jalaya

kab ahd-e-vafa ki baat ki thi

kab ham ne koi fareb khaya

vo shaam vo chandni vo ḳhushbu

manzil ka kise ḳhayal aaya

tu mahv-e-suḳhan thi mujh se lekin

main soch ke jaal bun raha tha

mere liye zindagi tadap thi

tere liye gham bhi qahqaha tha

ab tujh se bichhad ke sochta huun

kuchh tu ne kaha thaa! kya kaha tha
