dekhen ab kya dil-jalon se bol bole jaenge

dekhen ab kya dil-jalon se bol bole jaenge
lag hi se phut kya dil ke phaphole jaenge
hai yahan paimana mal-o-naqd hi lekin wahan
zarf ki mizan par hi log tole jaenge
mashal-e-mazi dikha sakti hai mustaqbil ki rah
hai ye kunji jis se sare qufl khole jaenge
yaad rakhne ke liye lamhe guzishta waqt ke
ab kitab-e-mazi ke panne tatole jaenge
tauba tauba kis qadar munh se tapakti hai shakar
is zaban se mithe mithe zahr ghole jaenge
ruh ki bosidgi ko dafn karne ke liye
dekhiyega badle kis kis tan ke chole jaenge
hai saraha khub ye paiwand-kari ka hunar
rishta-dar-rishta sabhi ab pech khole jaenge
peng badhti jae amrai mein jyun jyun din chadhe
sham hote tak utare sab hindole jaenge
lijiye diwan-e-'naqid' aap hi ke nam hai
hum kahan in be-tuke ashaar ko le jaenge
