ai matawalo! naqon walo!!

ai matawalo naqon walo dete ho kuchh us ka pata
najd ke andar majnun nami ek hamara bhai tha
aakhir us par kya kuchh biti jaano to ahwal kaho
maut mili ya laila pai? diwane ka maal kaho
aql ki baaten kahne wale doston ne use samjhaya
us ko to lekin chup si lagi thi na bola na baz aaya
khair ab us ki baat ko chhodo diwana phir diwana
jate jate hum logon ka ek sandesa le jaana
aawara aawara phirna chhod ke mandli yaron ki
dekh rahe hain dekhne wale 'insha' ka ab haal wahi
kya achchha khush-bash jawan tha jaane kyun bimar hua
uthte baithte mir ki baiten padhna us ka shiar hua
taur-tariqa ukhda-ukhda chehra pila sakht malul
rah mein jaise khak pe koi masla masla bagh ka phul
sham sawere baal bikhere baitha baitha rota hai
naqon walo! in logon ka aalam kaisa hota hai
apna bhi wo dost tha hum bhi pas us ke baith aate hain
idhar udhar ke qisse kah ke ji us ka bahlate hain
ukhdi-ukhdi baat kare hai bhul ke agla yarana
kaun ho tum kis kaam se aae? hum ne na tum ko pahchana
jaane ye kis ne chot lagai jaane ye kis ko pyar kare
tumhi kaho hum kis ko dhunden aahen khinche nam na le
pit mein aise jaan se yaro kitne log guzarte hain
pit mein nahaq mar nahin jate pit to sare karte hain
ai matwalo naqon walo! nagri nagri jate ho
kahin jo us ki jaan ka bairi mil jae ye baat kaho
chaak-gireban ek diwana phirta hai hairan hairan
patthar se sar phod marega diwane ko sabr kahan
tum chaho to basti chhode tum chaho to dasht basae
ai matawalo naqon walo warna ek din ye hoga
tum logon se aate jate puchhenge 'insha' ka pata

ai mere soch-nagar ki rani

tujh se jo main ne pyar kiya hai tere liye? nahin apne liye
waqt ki be-unwan kahani kab tak be-unwan rahe
ai mere soch-nagar ki rani ai mere khuld-e-khayal ki hur
itne dinon jo main ghulta raha hun tere bina yunhi dur hi dur
soch to kya phal mujh ko mila main man se gaya phir tan se gaya
shahr-e-watan mein ajnabi thahra aakhir shahr-e-watan se gaya
ruh ki pyas bujhani thi par yahan honton ki pyas bhi bujh na saki
bachte sambhalte bhi ek sulagta rog bani mere ji ki lagi
dur ki baat na soch abhi mere hat mein tu zara hat to de
tujh se jo main ne pyar kiya hai tere liye? nahin apne liye
bagh mein hai ek bele ka takhta bhini hai is bele ki sugandh
ai kaliyo kyun itne dinon tum rakkhe rahin ise god mein band
kitne hi hum se rup ke rasiya aae yahan aur chal bhi diye
tum ho ki itne husn ke hote ek na daman tham sake
sehn-e-chaman par bhaunron ke baadal ek hi pal ko chhaenge
phir na wo ja kar laut sakenge phir na wo ja kar aaenge
ai mere soch-nagar ki rani waqt ki baaten rang aur bu
har koi sath kisi ka dhunde gul hon ki bele main hun ki tu
jo kuchh kahna hai abhi kah le jo kuchh sunna hai sun le
tujh se jo main ne pyar kiya hai tere liye? nahin apne liye
dil ki na puchho kya kuchh chahe dil ka to phaila hai daman
git se gal ghazal si aankhen saad-e-simin barg-e-dahan
jude ke inhin phulon ko dekho kal ki si in mein bas kahan
ek ek tara kar ke dubi mathe ki tannaz afshan
sahne ka dukh sah na sake hum kahne ki baaten kah na sake
pas tere kabhi aa na sake hum dur bhi tujh se rah na sake
kis se kahe ab ruh ki bipta kis ko sunae man ki baat
dur ki rah bhatakta rahi jiwan-raat ghaneri raat
honton ki pyas bujhani hai ab tere ji ko ye baat lage na lage
tujh se jo main ne pyar kiya hai tere liye? nahin apne liye

apne hamrah jo aate ho idhar se pahle

apne hamrah jo aate ho idhar se pahle
dasht padta hai miyan ishq mein ghar se pahle
chal diye uth ke su-e-shahr-e-wafa ku-e-habib
puchh lena tha kisi khak-basar se pahle
ishq pahle bhi kiya hijr ka gham bhi dekha
itne tadpe hain na ghabrae na tarse pahle
ji bahalta hi nahin ab koi saat koi pal
raat dhalti hi nahin chaar pahar se pahle
hum kisi dar pe na thitke na kahin dastak di
saikdon dar the meri jaan tere dar se pahle
chand se aankh mili ji ka ujala jaga
hum ko sau bar hui subh sahar se pahle
