wo sitam-parwar ba-chashm ashk-bar aa hi gaya
chaak-damani pe meri us ko pyar aa hi gaya
mitte mitte mit gai jaan-e-wafa ki aarzu
aate aate be-qarari ko qarar aa hi gaya
chupke chupke mujh pe meri khamushi hansti rahi
rote rote jazb-e-dil par ikhtiyar aa hi gaya
koi wada jis ka mani-ashna hota nahin
phir usi wada-shikan par e'tibar aa hi gaya
ya ilahi jazba-e-hosh-o-khirad ki khair ho
muntazir jis ka junun tha wo dayar aa hi gaya

wo kabhi shaKH-e-gul-e-tar ki tarah lagta hai

wo kabhi shakh-e-gul-e-tar ki tarah lagta hai
aur kabhi dashna-o-khanjar ki tarah lagta hai
le ke aaya hun main kuchh khwab un aankhon ke liye
aaina bhi jinhen patthar ki tarah lagta hai
hadse aise bhi guzre ki tasawwur jin ka
dil ko chhu jae to thokar ki tarah lagta hai
halchalen daera-e-jaan mein chhupi rahti hain
jis se miliye wo samundar ki tarah lagta hai
kaisa mausam hai ki chubhti hain badan mein kirnen
sar pe suraj kisi khanjar ki tarah lagta hai
aadmi shiddat-e-ehsas ka mara ho agar
barg-e-gul bhi use patthar ki tarah lagta hai
dasht-e-be-ab mein jalte hue honton ko 'bashir'
ek qatra bhi samundar ki tarah lagta hai

taKHliq-e-kaenat digar kar sake to kar

takhliq-e-kaenat digar kar sake to kar
paida khud apne sham-o-sahar kar sake to kar
phulon mein shab guzarna mushkil nahin koi
kanton pe koi raat basar kar sake to kar
achchha nahin kisi ki tamanna se khelna
achchha yahi hai is se hazar kar sake to kar
har ashk-e-khun hai makhzan-e-sarmaya-e-hayat
har ashk-e-khun ko lal-o-gohar kar sake to kar
tare marahil-e-safar-e-shauq hi sahi
taron ko bhi sharik-e-safar kar sake to kar
aql-o-khirad ke marhale tai kar liye to kya
wahm-o-guman ke marke sar kar sake to kar
'faruq' ye bahaar-e-chaman phir na aaegi
yaran-e-mai-kada ko khabar kar sake to kar
