ye meri ghazlen ye meri nazMein

ye meri ghazlen ye meri nazmen
tamam teri hikayaten hain
ye tazkire tere lutf ke hain
ye sher teri shikayaten hain
main sab teri nazr kar raha hun
ye un zamanon ki saaten hain
jo zindagi ke nae safar mein
tujhe kisi waqt yaad aaen
to ek ek harf ji uthega
pahan ke anfas ki qabaen
udas tanhaiyon ke lamhon
mein nach utthengi ye apsaraen
mujhe tere dard ke alawa bhi
aur dukh the ye manta hun
hazar gham the jo zindagi ki
talash mein the ye jaanta hun
mujhe khabar thi ki tere aanchal mein
dard ki ret chhanta hun
magar har ek bar tujh ko chhu kar
ye ret rang-e-hina bani hai
ye zakhm gulzar ban gae hain
ye aah-e-sozan ghata bani hai
ye dard mauj-e-saba hua hai
ye aag dil ki sada bani hai
aur ab ye sari mata-e-hasti
ye phul ye zakhm sab tere hain
ye dukh ke nauhe ye sukh ke naghme
jo kal mere the wo ab tere hain
jo teri qurbat teri judai
mein kat gae roz-o-shab tere hain
wo tera shair tera mughanni
wo jis ki baaten ajib si thin
wo jis ke andaz khusrawana the
aur adaen gharib si thin
wo jis ke jine ki khwahishen bhi
khud us ke apne nasib si thin
na puchh is ka ki wo diwana
bahut dinon ka ujad chuka hai
wo kohkan to nahin tha lekin
kadi chatanon se lad chuka hai
wo thak chuka tha aur us ka tesha
usi ke sine mein gad chuka hai

ai siyah-fam hasina tera uryan paikar
kitni pathrai hui aankhon mein ghaltida hai
jaane kis daur-e-alama-nak se le kar ab tak
tu kade waqt ke zindanon mein khwabida hai
tere sab rang hayule ke ye be-jaan nuqush
jaise marbut khayalat ke tane-bane
ye teri sanwli rangat ye pareshan khutut
barha jaise mitaya ho inhen duniya ne
resha-e-sang se khinchi hui zulfen jaise
raste sina-e-kohsar pe bal khate hain
abruon ki jhuki mehrabon mein jamid palken
jis tarah tir kamanon mein ulajh jate hain
munjamid honton pe sannaton ka sangin tilism
jaise nayab khazanon pe kade pahre hon
tund jazbaat se bharpur barahna sina
jaise sustane ko tufan zara thahre hon
jaise yunan ke maghrur khuda-wandon ne
regazaran-e-habsh ki kisi shahzadi ko
tishna ruhon ke hawasnak tayyush ke liye
hajla-e-sang mein paband bana rakkha ho

agar ye sab kuchh nahin

mile to hum aaj bhi hain lekin
na mere dil mein wo tishnagi thi
ki tujh se mil kar kabhi na bichhdun
na aaj tujh mein wo zindagi thi
ki jism-o-jaan mein ubaal aae
na khwab-zaron mein raushni thi
na meri aankhen charagh ki lau
na tujh mein hi khud-supurdagi thi
na baat karne ki koi khwahish
na chup hi mein khub-surati thi
mujassamon ki tarah the donon
na dosti thi na dushmani thi
mujhe to kuchh yun laga hai jaise
wo saaten bhi guzar gai hain
ki jin ko hum la-zawal samjhe
wo khwahishen bhi to mar gai hain
jo tere mere lahu ki hiddat
ko aakhirash barf kar gai hain
mohabbaten shauq ki chatanon
se ghatiyon mein utar gai hain
wo qurbaten wo judaiyan sab
ghubar ban kar bikhar gai hain
agar ye sab kuchh nahin to batla
wo chahaten ab kidhar gai hain

har tamashai faqat sahil se manzar dekhta

har tamashai faqat sahil se manzar dekhta
kaun dariya ko ulatta kaun gauhar dekhta
wo to duniya ko meri diwangi khush aa gai
tere hathon mein wagarna pahla patthar dekhta
aankh mein aansu jude the par sada tujh ko na di
is tawaqqoa par ki shayad tu palat kar dekhta
meri qismat ki lakiren mere hathon mein na thin
tere mathe par koi mera muqaddar dekhta
zindagi phaili hui thi sham-e-hijran ki tarah
kis ko itna hausla tha kaun ji kar dekhta
dubne wala tha aur sahil pe chehron ka hujum
pal ki mohlat thi main kis ko aankh bhar kar dekhta
tu bhi dil ko ek khun ki bund samjha hai 'faraaz'
aankh agar hoti to qatre mein samundar dekhta

dosti ka hath

guzar gae kai mausam kai ruten badlin
udas tum bhi ho yaro udas hum bhi hain
faqat tumhin ko nahin ranj-e-chaak-damani
ki sach kahen to darida-libas hum bhi hain
tumhaare baam ki shamen bhi tabnak nahin
mere falak ke sitare bhi zard zard se hain
tumhaare aaina-khane bhi zang-aluda
mere surahi o saghar bhi gard gard se hain
na tum ko apne khad-o-khal hi nazar aaen
na main ye dekh sakun jam mein bhara kya hai
basaraton pe wo jale pade ki donon ko
samajh mein kuchh nahin aata ki majra kya hai
na sarw mein wo ghurur-e-kashida-qamati hai
na qumriyon ki udasi mein kuchh kami aai
na khil sake kisi jaanib mohabbaton ke gulab
na shakh-e-amn liye fakhta koi aai
tumhein bhi zid hai ki mashq-e-sitam rahe jari
hamein bhi naz ki jaur-o-jafa ke aadi hain
tumhein bhi zoam maha-bhaarta ladi tum ne
hamein bhi fakhr ki hum karbala ke aadi hain
sitam to ye hai ki donon ke margh-zaron se
hawa-e-fitna o bu-e-fasad aati hai
alam to ye hai ki donon ko wahm hai ki bahaar
adu ke khun mein nahane ke baad aati hai
to ab ye haal hua is darindagi ke sabab
tumhaare panw salamat rahe na hath mere
na jit jit tumhaari na haar haar meri
na koi sath tumhaare na koi sath mere
hamare shahron ki majbur o be-nawa makhluq
dabi hui hai dukhon ke hazar dheron mein
ab un ki tira-nasibi charagh chahti hai
jo log nisf sadi tak rahe andheron mein
charagh jin se mohabbat ki raushni phaile
charagh jin se dilon ke dayar raushan hon
charagh jin se ziya amn-o-ashti ki mile
charagh jin se diye be-shumar raushan hun
tumhaare des mein aaya hun dosto ab ke
na saz-o-naghma ki mahfil na shairi ke liye
agar tumhaari ana hi ka hai sawal to phir
chalo main hath badhata hun dosti ke liye
