aap wo sab ki jaan lete hain

aap wo sab ki jaan lete hain
maut ko muft san lene hain
dil bhala aashiqon ke pas kahan
aap hi chhin-chhan lete hain
kya kahun kaun jaan leta hai
wo mere mehrban lete hain
mai-kade ke qarib hum waiz
teri zid se makan lete hain
ab to ye haal hai 'nasim' un ka
jo main kahna hun man lete hain

bahaar aai hai phir wahshat ke saman hote jate hain

bahaar aai hai phir wahshat ke saman hote jate hain
mere sine mein daghon ke gulistan hote jate hain
mujhe bachpan kar ke dil-dahi bhi hoti jati hai
jafaen karte jate hain pasheman hote jate hain
kahan jata hai ai dil shikwa-e-mehr-o-wafa karne
wahan be-dad karne ke bhi ehsan hote jate hain
'nasim'-e-zinda-dil marne lage hain khub-ruyon par
ghazab hai aise danish-mand nadan hote jate hain

betab hain kisi ki nigahen naqab mein

betab hain kisi ki nigahen naqab mein
hain bijliyan ki kaund rahi hain sahab mein
likkhunga khat mein khub adu ki buraiyan
ho kar khafa wo kuchh na likhenge jawab mein
hum ko hai un ki fikr to un ko adu ki fikr
donon hain ek silsila-e-iztirab mein
us chhed ke nisar ki sun kar sawal-e-wasl
aaina rakh diya mere aage jawab mein
yaron main bu-e-mehr-o-mohabbat nahin 'nasim'
kya khak ud rahi hai jahan-e-kharab mein

de den abhi kare jo koi KHub-ru pasand

de den abhi kare jo koi khub-ru pasand
hum ko nahin pasand dil-e-arzu-pasand
manind-e-ashk khak mein aakhir mila diya
aai na aasman ko meri aabru pasand
tum ne wahan raqib ko pahlu mein di jagah
yan rah gaya tadap ke dil-e-arzu-pasand
ushshaq se wo puchhte hain tegh tol kar
hai zakhm-e-sar pasand ki zakhm-e-gulu pasand
qurban is ada ke wo kahte hain ai 'nasim'
aaya hai aashiqon mein hamein ek tu pasand
