apne dariya ki pyas

sadaqaton ke junun ka
hum aisa aaina hain
jo apne akson ka man kho kar
shikastagi ka azab sahne mein mubtala hai
hum aise tufan ka majra hain
jo tutte phutte chatakhte se
apne aasab ke bikharne ki aas mein hain
jo tishna-lab sahilon ki manind
apne dariya ki pyas mein hain
jo dasht-e-imkan ki hawaon ki
barguzida magar darida libas mein hain

apne hi sae mein tha mein shayad chhupa hua

apne hi sae mein tha mein shayad chhupa hua
jab khud hi hat gaya to kahin rasta mila
jalte rahe hain apne hi dozakh mein raat din
hum se ziyaada koi hamara adu na tha
dekha na phir palat ke kisi shahsawar ne
main har sada ka naqsh-e-qadam khojta raha
diwar phand kar na yahan aaega koi
rahne do zakhm-e-dil ka daricha khula hua
nikla agar to hath na aaunga phir kabhi
kab se hun is badan ki kaman mein tana hua
bedar hain shuur ki kirnen kahin kahin
har zehn mein hai wahm ka tarik rasta
ju-e-nashat ban ke baha le gai mujhe
aawaz thi ki saz-e-jawani ka aks tha
itna bhi kaun hoga halak-e-fareb-e-rang
shab us ne mai jo pi hai to mujh ko nasha hua
'farigh' hawae dard ne lauta diya jise
aaega ek din mera ghar puchhta hua

chandni ne raat ka mausam jawan jaise kiya

chandni ne raat ka mausam jawan jaise kiya
hum ne bhi chehra farozan shisha-e-mai se kiya
pas-e-khuddari to hai lekin wafa-dushman nahin
tum ne hum par tark-e-ulfat ka guman kaise kiya
hum gunahon ki shariat se hue jab aashna
jism ne jo faisla jaise diya waise kiya
is liye ab dubne ke khauf se hain be-niyaz
hum ne aaghaz-e-safar dariyaon ki tah se kiya
raushni apni lutai hum ne suraj ki tarah
andhi raaton mein ujala mashal-e-lai se kiya
jab shuur aaya to 'farigh' wusat-fan ke liye
istifada hum ne duniya ki har ek shai se kiya

dekh kar us hasin paikar ko

dekh kar us hasin paikar ko
nashsha sa aa gaya samundar ko
dolti dagmagati si naw
pi gai aa ke sare sagar ko
khushk pedon mein jaan padne lagi
dekh kar rup ke samundar ko
bahr pyase ki justuju mein hai
hai sadaf ki talash gauhar ko
koi to nim-wa darichon se
dekhe is rat-jage ke manzar ko
ek dewi hai muntazir 'farigh'
wa kiye pat sajae mandar ko

dekha tujhe to aankhon ne aiwan saja liye

dekha tujhe to aankhon ne aiwan saja liye
jaise tamam khoe hue khwab pa liye
jitne the tere mahke hue aanchalon ke rang
sab titliyon ne aur dhanak ne uda liye
aisi ghuti fazaon mein kaise jiyenge wo
kuchh qafile jo aae hain taza hawa liye
in sar-phiri hawaon se kuchh aashna to hun
gahre samundaron mein na kashti ko daliye
izhaar kijiye ki zara karb kam to ho
ai dosto dukhon ko dilon mein na paliye
khud hi uthaen apne junun ki jarahaten
ye rog dusron ke na khate mein daliye
pahle ye kohsar to taskhir kijiye
'farigh' abhi falak pe kamanden na daliye

dekhe koi jo chaak-e-gareban ke par bhi

dekhe koi jo chaak-e-gareban ke par bhi
aaina-e-khizan mein hai aks-e-bahaar bhi
ab har-nafas hai bhigi sadaon ki ek fasil
mauj-e-hawas thi gardish-e-lail-o-nahaar bhi
kya shorish-e-junun hai zara kam nahin hua
qurbat ke bawajud tera intizar bhi
kitni aqidaton ke jigar chaak ho gae
kya sehr tha shuur-e-nazar ka khumar bhi
jo arsh-o-farsh par kabhi aaya nahin nazar
dekha hai us ko hum ne sar-e-rahguzar bhi
wo shor-e-husn tha dam-e-nazzara-e-jamal
hum sun sake na apne badan ki pukar bhi
'farigh' khayal-e-yar se main ham-subu raha
guzri hai mai-kade mein shab-e-intizar bhi
