apne andar bhi ham-nawai nahin

apne andar bhi ham-nawai nahin
aql ki ruh tak rasai nahin
sauda-bazi agar na ho is mein
neki karne mein kuchh burai nahin
har ada se ada nikalti hai
itni aasan aashnai nahin
hum se qaem hai tere husn ki shan
ye meri jaan! khud-satai nahin
kitna tanha hun dasht-e-ghurbat mein
mera bhai bhi mera bhai nahin
kisi unwan se kabhi 'abid'
zindagi hum ko ras aai nahin

hath mein mahtab ho jaise

hath mein mahtab ho jaise
khuli aaankhon mein khwab ho jaise
mere ham-sae mein jo rahta hai
mujh sa khana-kharab ho jaise
chand nikla to is qarine se
ek hasin be-hijab ho jaise
ham-safar dhundne ko nikla hun
mausam-e-intikhab ho jaise
yun gunahon ki yaad aati hai
aaj yaum-e-hisab ho jaise
aankh muddat se tar nahin 'abid'
khushk apna chanab ho jaise
