koi darpesh jab safar aaya

koi darpesh jab safar aaya
tera chehra bhi baam par aaya
lag ke chilman se jhankna bahar
yaad wo adh-khula sa dar aaya
mere sayyaad ko bhi hairat hai
kyun na main bhi lahu mein tar aaya
dekh sare jahan ko thukra kar
tera diwana tere ghar aaya
tere dar se shifa mile sab ko
ek 'umar' hi shikasta-tar aaya

KHud se bhi wo Darta hoga

khud se bhi wo darta hoga
wo bhi mere jaisa hoga
zakhm-e-jigar se jo tapka hai
us ki aankh se bahta hoga
sochon mein aae chupke se
nange panw chalta hoga
dar pe dastak dene wala
us ki yaad ka jhonka hoga
mahak utha hai mera badan bhi
khushbu mein wo rahta hoga
sath-e-ab pe ek chehra hai
lahron mein wo rahta hoga
ab to khwab jaziron mein wo
yaad ke kankar chunta hoga
khoya khoya sa khud main hi
logon se wo milta hoga
dekh ke girte patton ko wo
pahron baith ke rota hoga
dasht-e-gham ke sannate mein
wo bhi tanha tanha hoga
dil mein chhupa kar meri yaaden
pahron nazmen likhta hoga
mast hawaon se hi 'umar' wo
mere naghme sunta hoga

dard-e-dil la-dawa nahin hota

dard-e-dil la-dawa nahin hota
han magar hausla nahin hota
gham khushi rang zindagi ke hain
raat bin din naya nahin hota
raushni se chhupate hain chehre
jab andhera zara nahin hota
chand yaaden hain kuchh jawan sochen
kaun tanha sada nahin hota
thahre pani to gadle hote hain
kyun kahun wo juda nahin hota
rahte hain ek ghar mein hi lekin
muddaton samna nahin hota
muskuraun to sab 'umar' hamdam
gham mein ek aashna nahin hota
