ye koi baat hai sunta na baghban meri

ye koi baat hai sunta na baghban meri
kahan asar mein wo dubi hui fughan meri
chali hai aaj sunane unhen fughan meri
are zarur ye katwaegi zaban meri
hili zaban ki bijli hai phir fughan meri
khuda kare na qafas mein khule zaban meri
wo zulf khol ke sharmaen ghair ke ghar aaj
kuchh is ada se shab-e-gham ho mehman meri
mujhe ye dar hai na phule phale bahaar mein ye
jhuki hui hai bahut shakh-e-ashiyan meri
ghazab ka dard qayamat ka hai asar us mein
khuda kisi ko na sunwae dastan meri
ye dair mein nahin bajte hain khud-bakhud naqus
haram mein gunj rahi hai buto azan meri
tum apne baam se fariyaad ki ijazat do
yahan se to nahin sunta hai aasman meri
kisi ke aane ka ab intizar kaun kare
pukarti hai mujhe marg-e-na-gahan meri
kahe kahe na kahe koi mujh ko kya us se
sunen sunen na sunen aap dastan meri
wo bole hashr mein khul khelne ko kahte hain
sata rahi hain mujhe aaj shokhiyan meri
na dast-e-naz mein lo tegh is nazakat se
tumhaare bas ki nahin jaan-e-na-tawan meri
zaban mein bhi asar hai mere bayan mein bhi
sunen na aap mere munh se dastan meri
jo bosa wasl mein mangon to den saza mujh ko
jo lab hilaun to wo kat len zaban meri
main na-tawan bhi gaya aaj baam tak un ke
ye zar tha ki mujhe le udi fughan meri
sharab main pas-e-tauba jo mangon bhule se
to mai-farosh kahe nazr hai dukan meri
kuchh ab ki bagh mein is dhum se bahaar aae
na baghban ki sunun main na baghban meri
jo ye kaha ho meri aai tujh ko aa jae
mujhe nasib na ho nind pasban meri
payam maut ka hai yaad unhen meri kaisi
kuchh aaj aur hi kahti hain hichkiyan meri
wo bole abru-o-mizhgan ko kya hua shab-e-wasl
dhare rahe yunhi nawak mere kaman meri
uthaun afw ki lazzat bhi lutf-e-isyan bhi
mere karim ye taqdir hai kahan meri
satane wale ko kuchh qadr ho satane ki
unhen satae jo mane ye aasman meri
wo main hun aaj zamane ko naz hai jis par
'riyaz' dhum hai jis ki wo hai zaban meri
