rind betab hain ghanghor ghaTa chhai hai

rind betab hain ghanghor ghata chhai hai
mai-kade gunj rahe hain wo bahaar aai hai
bazm-e-aghyar mein us ne mujhe daryaft kiya
baad muddat ke use yaad meri aai hai
kat hi jati hain kisi tarah hamari raaten
gham salamat rahe wo monis-e-tanhai hai
qatl karne ko mere aate hain wo tegh-ba-dast
main samajhta hun mere haq mein masihai hai
un ko ye zid hai na dekhenge kabhi meri taraf
main ne bhi dar se na uthne ki qasam khai hai
hai ye rindon ke taaqub mein koi raaz amiq
warna auron se bhi waiz ki shanasai hai
puchhne aae hain wo haal mera ai 'hafiz'
zoaf se salb yahan taqat-e-goyai hai
