Zindagani Ka Ye Pahlu Kuchh Zarifana Bhi Hai

zindagānī kā ye pahlū kuchh zarīfāna bhī hai

ya.anī us kī har haqīqat ek afsāna bhī hai

tum jise jaisā banā dete ho ban jaatā hai vo

fitratan har aadmī aaqil bhī dīvāna bhī hai

rañj hī akasr huā kartā hai rāhat kā nishāñ

jis jagah tum daam dekhoge vahāñ daana bhī hai

vā-e-qismat ik hamīñ mahrūm is fan se rahe

apne matlab ke liye hushyār dīvāna bhī hai

vaq.at-e-mai-ḳhāna bhī apnī jagah kuchh kam nahīñ

qābil-e-tāzīm go ka.aba bhī but-ḳhāna bhī hai

dil kī fitrat ishq-o-ulfat hī maiñ ai ‘sāhir’ khulī

ye vo kāfir hai ki apnā ho ke begāna bhī hai
