jis ko chalna hai chale raKHt-e-safar bandhe hue

jis ko chalna hai chale rakht-e-safar bandhe hue
hum jahan-gasht hain utthe hain kamar bandhe hue
yun to har gam kai dam hain dasht-e-shab mein
hum bhi aae hain par-o-baal-e-sahar bandhe hue
su-e-aflak safiran-e-dua jae hain
dar hai laut aaen na zanjir-e-asar bandhe hue
ahl-e-zindan hain abhi muntazir-e-fasl-e-bahaar
shakh-e-farda se khayal-e-gul-e-tar bandhe hue
dasht-e-imkan mein koi sath mera de na saka
kitne rahbar mile dastar-e-khizar bandhe hue
koi aaghosh kushada hai na wa koi nazar
yani jo dar hai koi parda-e-dar bandhe hue
bujh gai shama nazar mund gain shab ki aankhen
subh ab aai hai pushtara-e-zar bandhe hue
hum 'tamannai' jahan-e-guzaran ki rau mein
su-e-shabnam chale ummid-e-sharar bandhe hue
