aap se uns hua chahta hai

aap se uns hua chahta hai
phir koi bab khula chahta hai
mere ahbab mein kar do ye khabar
wo bhi ab mera hua chahta hai
aql hi ko nahin nudrat marghub
dil bhi andaz naya chahta hai
hum nai dosti ke qail the
koi dushman ka pata chahta hai
jo khatakta hai ek 'alam' ko
wo bhi logon ki dua chahta hai

ai dost teri baat sahar-KHez bahut hai

ai dost teri baat sahar-khez bahut hai
par tarz-e-takallum tera khun-rez bahut hai
gum-sum sa khada hai koi darwaza-e-dil par
is sham ka manzar to dil-awez bahut hai
mahfil mein tere hone se hai rang pe mausam
ahwal-e-khas-o-am tarab-khez bahut hai
ek shakhs jo uljha hai nai fikr-o-nazar mein
wo sahib-e-khush-fahm hai aur tez bahut hai
jo baat tu kahta hai wahi baat ho shayad
lekin teri ye baat gham-angez bahut hai
bhadke hue shoale hi mata-e-dil-o-jaan hain
'alam' tere kuche mein hawa tez bahut hai

attar ke maskan mein ye kaisi udasi hai

attar ke maskan mein ye kaisi udasi hai
sone ki muqabil mein har samt hi mitti hai
tu sahab-e-qudrat hai tu apna karam rakhna
sahra ki taraf mail haalat ki kashti hai
raushan hai darakhshan hai ye daur ba-zahir to
mazdur ke bas mein to bas ridh ki haddi hai
lamhon ki taaqub mein sadiyon ki dharohar thi
afsos ke daman mein ghurbat ki ye basti hai
wo sahab-e-masnad hain is se unhen kya matlab
jazbon ke darichon se jari koi naddi hai
har khwab shikasta hai tamir-e-nasheman ka
har subh ke mathe par bazar ki garmi hai
kuchh aur masail se uljhega abhi 'alam'
har sahib-e-alam pe chhai abhi masti hai

baDa KHushnuma ye maqam hai nai zindagi ki talash kar

bada khushnuma ye maqam hai nai zindagi ki talash kar
tu na apne zehn ki baat kar nai dosti ki talash kar
tere aasman ka sar kabhi kisi aur zamin pe jhuk gaya
ye hua to aisa hua hi kyun kabhi us kami ki talash kar
kabhi khwahishon ke hujum mein jo phisal gae hain mere qadam
jise pi ke dahr sambhal gaya usi mai-kashi ki talash kar
jo bahaar ko bhi aziz thi wahi sham lutf-o-surur ki
jise siskiyon ki nazar lagi usi zindagi ki talash kar
jahan aadmi ki baqa rahe jahan fikr-o-fan ko jila mile
jahan dard-e-nau ka pata mile wahan aagahi ki talash kar
na udas sham ke falsafe na bahaar-e-subh ki raunaqen
na asl zist ke zer-o-bam na to naghmagi ki talash kar
jo bhi guftugu ka usul hai usi baat ka tu khayal rakh
nai kaenat ki justuju nai raushni ki talash kar

dushmanon ko mere hamraaz karoge shayad

dushmanon ko mere hamraaz karoge shayad
waqt-e-tanhai mein aawaz karoge shayad
tum bahut tez ho shah-zor ho ustad bhi ho
tum bina par ke bhi parwaz karoge shayad
ye khula jism khule baal ye halke malbus
tum nai subh ka aaghaz karoge shayad
talkh andaz se badloge zamane ka mizaj
apne atraf ko na-saz karoge shayad
tum to khamosh ho lo main hi zara bolta hun
baat se baat ka aaghaz karoge shayad

guzre lamhat ka ehsas hua jata hai

guzre lamhat ka ehsas hua jata hai
daman-e-waqt yunhi mujh se chhata jata hai
main ujale ko mohabbat ka khuda likhta hun
wo andhere hi se manus hua jata hai
jis ki khushbu se fazaon mein mahak thi shab-bhar
subh-dam us ki taraf sanp badha jata hai
mujh ko dar hai koi aabid na bahak jae kahin
dil-ruba chand ka andaz hua jata hai
dur rah kar bhi rag-e-jaan se lipat jate hain
aur is dil mein ujala sa hua jata hai
is qadar zahr pilaya mujhe us ne 'alam'
talkhi-e-zist ka ehsas mita jata hai
