dil hai aaina-e-hairat se do-chaar aaj ki raat
gham-e-dauran mein hai aks-e-gham-e-yar aaj ki raat
koi mansur se ja kar ye kaho ham-nafaso
hun ba-tazir-e-khamoshi sar-e-dar aaj ki raat
gham ke mehwar pe hain thahre hue aflak-o-nujum
meri mahfil mein nahin waqt ko bar aaj ki raat
na makan aaj hai sabit na zaman hai sayyar
na khizan shoabada-ara na bahaar aaj ki raat
kabhi firdaus-e-gul-o-lala thi jo kisht-e-khayal
us se be-sakhta ugte hain sharar aaj ki raat
bu-e-khun aati hai sahra-e-tamanna se mujhe
khelta hun dil-e-wahshi ka shikar aaj ki raat
tujhe malum hai 'abid' ki bayaz dil par
nakhun-e-gham ne kiye naqsh-o-nigar aaj ki raat

yahi tha waqf teri mahfil-e-tarab ke liye

yahi tha waqf teri mahfil-e-tarab ke liye
charagh-e-dil ki sulagta hai aaj sab ke liye
kabhi main jurat-e-izhaar-e-muddaa to karun
koi jawaz to ho lutf-e-be-sabab ke liye
ufuq se chand ki champa-kali ubharti hai
sajae jate hain zewar nigar-e-shab ke liye
tere gada ne bhi saghar ka nuqrai aanchal
kahin se mang liya dukhtar-e-enab ke liye
tamam umr ba-faiz-e-nigah-e-lala-rukhan
sanad raha hun ishaaraat-e-chashm-o-lab ke liye
chaman se phul ke dhoke mein chun liye shoale
kaf-e-wafa ke liye daman-e-talab ke liye
kahin jo pursish-e-ahwal par wo mail hon
ki hum ne dil ko sambhaala hua hai jab ke liye
mujhe khabar hai bahut se mata-e-zauq-e-nazar
dukan-e-kakul-o-rukhsar-o-chashm-o-lab ke liye
sitara subh ka raushan tha sham se 'abid'
yahi thi maut harifan-e-bazm-e-shab ke liye
