yak Thaar u nigar khaDi thi nazar paDi

yak thaar u nigar khadi thi nazar padi
yak bul-hawas ke hat chadi thi nazar padi
kaswat newi nayan mein khumari badan pe jot
lat khis pati sun mukh pe padi thi nazar padi
moti sun hor sune se na jaanon diya hai kun
bhar sab apas ke tan kun mudi thi nazar padi
baalan mein tel bar mein gulan bhar gala sandal
tambul ki adhar pe dhadi thi nazar padi
'bahri' ab us pari ki parat kun patiya nako
bazi kuchh aur bhant khadi thi nazar padi

dil-baran ka apas kun das na kar

dil-baran ka apas kun das na kar
das hota to dil udas na kar
gar alak par hai lak to chak sun jhatak
chak ki ummid alak ki aas na kar
lat kun lat-pat ho rukh pe rij niku
sut kanti ko phir kapas na kar
bul-hawas bulbulan naman har ban
dekh apas dukh ki iltimas na kar
yani yak thaar yak yaqin su uchh
baj yak dusra qayas na kar
gar jo dil jal dhunwan asas mein nin
tu kubudi abas libas na kar
tod apas ka hijab ai 'bahri'
mulk mein man ke us mawas na kar

ai sakhiyan maine dekhya sang kar ke yar ka

ai sakhiyan main ne dekhya sang kar ke yar ka
pan na dekhya be-samajh hor sang-dil tujh sar ka
jiw lene jaanta hor dilbari ke tu kala
ghar mein hai lag aapna hor bhaarge parpar ka
jiw jal kahta hun main pan sun tun sangin hun niku
bol apas ki birah ki par bas mein bilkhanhaar ka
ghaw kari uchh na jaana jiw hor jam talkhali
yun to khasiyat disya tujh ishq ki tarwar ka
til tere rakhte hain jaga tin lak payaade ki aaj
chak tere karte hain dawa chaar lak aswar ka
ishq mein kuchh adl achhuta to na achhuta be-dhadak
dukh dilawar lashkari sar kat sukh sardar ka
'bahriya' sar panw kyun karta haqiqat ka so bol
girna khadta sar pe tere u majazi mar ka
