fareb tha aql-o-agahi ka ki meri fikr-o-nazar ka dhoka

fareb tha aql-o-agahi ka ki meri fikr-o-nazar ka dhoka
jo aakhir-e-shab ki chandni par hua tha mujh ko sahar ka dhoka
main baghbanon ki sazishon ko siyasaton ko samajh chuka hun
khizan ka kha kar fareb-e-paiham utha ke barq-o-sharar ka dhoka
shuur-e-pukhta ki khair ho jis ne zindagi ko bacha liya hai
teri nigah-e-karam-numa ne diya to tha umr-bhar ka dhoka
duaon ko hath utha raha hun ye khud-farebi mulahiza ho
fareb-e-taskin ka bura ho main kha raha hun asar ka dhoka
dikhai deti hai maskh 'nayyar' hasin surat bhi zindagi ki
qusur hai aaine ka is mein ki hai ye aaina-gar ka dhoka
