chhoD kar dil mein gai wahshi hawa kuchh bhi nahin

chhod kar dil mein gai wahshi hawa kuchh bhi nahin
kis qadar gunjaan jangal tha raha kuchh bhi nahin
khak-e-pa-e-yaad tak gili hawa ne chat li
ishq ki gharqab basti mein bacha kuchh bhi nahin
haal ke zindan se bahar kuchh nahin juz rud-e-marg
aur is zindan mein juz zanjir-e-pa kuchh bhi nahin
hijr ke kale samundar ka nahin sahil koi
mauja-e-tufan-e-dahshat se wara kuchh bhi nahin
aabanae-dard ke donon taraf hai dasht-e-khauf
ab to chaara jaan dene ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
hath mera ai meri parchhain tu hi tham le
ek muddat se mujhe to sujhta kuchh bhi nahin
shahr-e-shab mein kaun sa ghar tha na di jis par sada
nind ke andhe musafir ko mila kuchh bhi nahin
raat bhar ek chap si phirti rahi chaaron taraf
jaan-lewa khauf tha lekin hua kuchh bhi nahin
kasa-e-jaan hath mein le kar gae the hum wahan
lae us dar se ba-juz khun-e-sada kuchh bhi nahin
umr bhar umr-e-gurezan se na meri ban saki
jo kare karti rahe main puchhta kuchh bhi nahin
wo bhi shayad ro pade viran kaghaz dekh kar
main ne us ko aakhiri khat mein likha kuchh bhi nahin
daulat-e-tanhai bhi aane se tere chhin gai
ab to mere pas ai jaan-e-wafa kuchh bhi nahin
dil pe lakhon lafz kanda kar gai us ki nazar
aur kahne ko abhi us ne kaha kuchh bhi nahin

din aise yun to aae hi kab the jo ras the

din aise yun to aae hi kab the jo ras the
lekin ye chand roz to behad udas the
un ko bhi aaj mujh se hain lakhon shikayaten
kal tak jo ahl-e-bazm sarapa sipas the
wo gul bhi zahr-khand ki shabnam se at gae
jo shakhsar-e-dard-e-mohabbat ki aas the
meri barahnagi pe hanse hain wo log bhi
mashhur shahr bhar mein jo nang-e-libas the
ek lafz bhi na meri safai mein kah sake
wo sare mehrban jo mere aas-pas the
tera to sirf nam hi tha to hai kyun malul
bais mere junun ka to mere hawas the
wo rang bhi ude jo nazar mein na the kabhi
wo khwab bhi lute jo qarin-e-qayas the

dipak-rag hai chahat apni kahe sunaen tumhein

dipak-rag hai chahat apni kahe sunaen tumhein
hum to sulagte hi rahte hain kyun sulgaen tumhein
tark-e-mohabbat tark-e-tamanna kar chukne ke baad
hum pe ye mushkil aan padi hai kaise bhulaen tumhein
dil ke zakhm ka rang to shayad aankhon mein bhar aae
ruh ke zakhmon ki gahrai kaise dikhaen tumhein
dard hamari mahrumi ka tum tab jaanoge
jab khane aaegi chup ki saen saen tumhein
sannata jab tanhai ke zahr mein bujhta hai
wo ghadiyan kyunkar katti hain kaise bataen tumhein
jin baaton ne pyar tumhaara nafrat mein badla
dar lagta hai wo baaten bhi bhul na jaen tumhein
rang-birange git tumhaare hijr mein hath aae
phir bhi ye kaise chahen ki sari umr na paen tumhein
udte panchhi dhalte sae jate pal aur hum
bairan sham ka daman tham ke roz bulaen tumhein
dur gagan par hansne wale nirmal komal chand
be-kal man kahta hai aao hath lagaen tumhein
pas hamare aakar tum begana se kyun ho
chaho to hum phir kuchh duri par chhod aaen tumhein
anhoni ki chinta honi ka anyae 'nazar'
donon bairi hain jiwan ke hum samjhaen tumhein

har ghaDi qayamat thi ye na puchh kab guzri

har ghadi qayamat thi ye na puchh kab guzri
bas yahi ghanimat hai tere baad shab guzri
kunj-e-gham mein ek gul bhi likh nahin saka pura
is bala ki tezi se sarsar-e-tarab guzri
tere gham ki khushbu se jism o jaan mahak utthe
sans ki hawa jab bhi chhu ke mere lab guzri
ek sath rah kar bhi dur hi rahe hum tum
dhup aur chhanw ki dosti ajab guzri
jaane kya hua hum ko ab ke fasl-e-gul mein bhi
barg-e-dil nahin larza teri yaad jab guzri
be-qarar be-kal hai jaan sukun ke sahra mein
aaj tak na dekhi thi ye ghadi jo ab guzri
baad-e-tark-e-ulfat bhi yun to hum jiye lekin
waqt be-tarah bita umr be-sabab guzri
kis tarah tarashoge tohmat-e-hawas hum par
zindagi hamari to sari be-talab guzri

hayat waqf-e-gham-e-rozgar kyun karte

hayat waqf-e-gham-e-rozgar kyun karte
main sochta hun ki wo mujh se pyar kyun karte
na meri rah mein tare na mere pas charagh
wo mere sath safar ikhtiyar kyun karte
nigah sirf bulawa nahin kuchh aur bhi hai
ye jaante to tera e'tibar kyun karte
gham-e-hayat mein hota agar na hath tera
to hum khirad mein junun ko shumar kyun karte
koi to baat hai warna jafaon ke mare
tujhe bhula ke tera intizar kyun karte
'nazar' chaman mein agar waqai bahaar aati
to phul khwahish-e-abr-e-bahaar kyun karte

KHud ko pane ki talab mein aarzu uski bhi thi

khud ko pane ki talab mein aarzu us ki bhi thi
main jo mil jata to us mein aabru us ki bhi thi
zindagi ek dusre ko dhundne mein kat gai
justuju meri bhi dushman thi adu us ki bhi thi
meri baaton mein bhi talkhi thi sam-e-tanhai ki
zahr-e-tanhai mein dubi guftugu us ki bhi thi
wo gaya to karwaten le le ke pahlu thak gae
kis tarah sota mere sanson mein bu us ki bhi thi
raat bhar aankhon mein us ka marmarin paikar raha
chandni ke jhilmilane mein numu us ki bhi thi
ghar se us ka bhi nikalna ho gaya aakhir muhaal
meri ruswai se shohrat ku-ba-ku us ki bhi thi
main hua khaif to us ke bhi ude hosh-o-hawas
meri jo surat hui wo hu-ba-hu us ki bhi thi
kuchh mujhe bhi sidhe-sadhe raston se bair hai
kuchh bhatak jaane ke bais justuju us ki bhi thi
wo jise sare zamane ne kaha mera raqib
main ne us ko ham-safar jaana ki tu us ki bhi thi
dasht-e-furqat ka safar bhi aakhirash tai ho gaya
aur kuchh din sath deta aarzu us ki bhi thi
baat badhne ko to badh jati bahut lekin 'nazar'
main bhi kuchh kam-go tha chup rahne ki khu us ki bhi thi
