zara na hum pe kiya eatibar guzri hai

zara na hum pe kiya eatibar guzri hai
ye ruh jism se begana-war guzri hai
hamein guman bhi na tha un ki tab-e-nazuk par
zara si baat sataish ki bar guzri hai
khirad ke zor se himmat ke baal-o-par le kar
kahan kahan se ye musht-e-ghubar guzri hai
katega kaise ye viran be-sahaara din
abhi to sirf shab-e-intizar guzri hai
badun-e-zakhm na roenge panw ke chhaale
bahe sarishk jahan nok-e-khar guzri hai
kahan hai aariz khurshid-e-nim-roze ki umr
miyan-e-kakul-e-shab-ha-e-tar guzri hai
chhupa labon pe tabassum ayan jabin pe shikan
hansi ki baat unhen nagawar guzri hai
gai jidhar se wo madhosh ho gai mahfil
magar wo shokh nazar hoshiyar guzri hai
aqab mein apne chhupae hazar-ha paikan
nazar ke samne mizhgan-e-yar guzri hai
hujum-e-shauq ke hathon gale pe 'hamid' ke
na puchhiye jo dam-e-ikhtisar guzri hai
