Aalam hi aur tha jo shanasaiyon mein tha,
jo deep tha nigaah ki parchhaaiyon mein tha.
Woh be-panaah khauf jo tanhaiyon mein tha,
dil ki tamaam anjuman-aaraaiyon mein tha.
Ek lamha-e fusun ne jalaaya tha jo diya,
phir umar bhar khayaal ki raanaaiyon mein tha.
Ek khwaab-guun si dhoop thi zakhmon ki aanch mein,
ek saaebaan sa dard ki purwaaiyon mein tha.
Dil ko bhi ek jaraahat-e dil ne ataa kiya,
ye hausla ki apne tamaashaaiyon mein tha.
kaTta kahan taweel tha raaton ka silsila,
sooraj meri nigaah ki sachchaaiyon mein tha.
Apni gali mein kyon na kisi ko woh mil saka,
jo etimaad baadiya-paimaaiyon mein tha.
Is ahd-e-khud-sipaas ka puchho ho maajra,
masroof aap apni paziraaiyon mein tha.
Us ke huzoor shukr bhi aasaan nahin ada,
woh jo qareeb-e jaan meri tanhaaiyon mein tha. !!
aalam hi aur tha jo shanasaiyon mein tha
jo dip tha nigah ki parchhaiyon mein tha
wo be-panah KHauf jo tanhaiyon mein tha
dil ki tamam anjuman-araiyon mein tha
ek lamha-e-fusun ne jalaya tha jo diya
phir umr bhar KHayal ki ranaiyon mein tha
ek KHwab-gun si dhup thi zaKHmon ki aanch mein
ek saeban sa dard ki purwaiyon mein tha
dil ko bhi ek jarahat-e-dil ne ata kiya
ye hausla ki apne tamashaiyon mein tha
kaTta kahan tawil tha raaton ka silsila
suraj meri nigah ki sachchaiyon mein tha
apni gali mein kyun na kisi ko wo mil saka
jo e'timad baadiya-paimaiyon mein tha
is ahd-e-KHud-sipas ka puchho ho majra
masruf aap apni paziraiyon mein tha
us ke huzur shukr bhi aasan nahin 'ada'
wo jo qarib-e-jaan meri tanhaiyon mein tha
