shahr se kya gai jaanib-e-dasht-ezar zindagi faKHta

shahr se kya gai jaanib-e-dasht-ezar zindagi fakhta
bain karne lagi aa ke sham-o-sahar matami fakhta
mar gaya raat ko barf odhe hue ek footpath par
wo jo kahta raha lafz wo umr-bhar shanti fakhta
kaisi kaisi hawaen chalin bagh mein kaun aaya gaya
sari tabdiliyon se rahi be-khabar bawri fakhta
wo nagar chand ka hai wahan teri kirnon ki khwahish kise
is taraf tirgi hai yahan la ke dhar tashtari fakhta
be-aman shahr mein kaisi dahshat se guzri thi main kya kahun
jab adu dekhti apne hi baal-o-par nochti fakhta
wo jo aankhon mein thi koi duniya alag thi jahan se juda
mere khwabon mein the amn ka rahbar raushni fakhta
main tha shair mujhe shahr-ashob likhne the likhta raha
teri qismat mein likhe gae kyun khandar sundari fakhta
