ghunche ka jawab ho gaya hai

ghunche ka jawab ho gaya hai
dil khil ke gulab ho gaya hai
pa kar tab-o-tab soz-e-gham se
aansu dur-e-nab ho gaya hai
kya fikr-e-bahaar o mahfil-e-yar
ab khatm wo bab ho gaya hai
ummid-e-sukun ka zikr-e-rana
sab khwab-o-sarab ho gaya hai
marna bhi nahin hai apne bas mein
jina bhi azab ho gaya hai

apni nakaam tamannaon ka matam na karo

apni nakaam tamannaon ka matam na karo
tham gaya daur-e-mai-e-nab to kuchh gham na karo
aur bhi kitne tariqe hain bayan-e-gham ke
muskuraati hui aankhon ko to pur-nam na karo
han ye shamshir-e-hawadis ho to kuchh baat bhi hai
gardanen tauq-e-ghulami ke liye kham na karo
tum to ho rind tumhein mahfil-e-jam se kya kaam
bazm-e-jam ho gai barham to koi gham na karo
baada-e-kohna dhale saghar-e-nau mein 'fitrat'
zauq-e-fariyaad ko aazurda-e-matam na karo
