dil mein rakkha tha sharar-e-gham ko aansu jaan ke

dil mein rakkha tha sharar-e-gham ko aansu jaan ke
han magar dekhe ajab andaz is tufan ke
apni majburi ke aaine mein pahchana tujhe
yun to kitne hi wasile the teri pahchan ke
zakhm khun-alud hain aansu dhuan dete hue
ye suhane se namune hain tere ehsan ke
dard-o-gham ke tapte sahra ki kadakti dhup mein
so gaya hun main teri yaadon ki chadar tan ke
dekhiye kab tak haqiqat tak rasai ho 'zuhair'
chand taron tak to ja pahunche qadam insan ke
