etakaf mein zahid munh chhupae baiTha hai

etakaf mein zahid munh chhupae baitha hai
ghaaliban zamane se mat khae baitha hai
wae-ashiq-e-nadan kaenat ye teri
ek shikasta shishe ko dil banae baitha hai
taliban-e-did un ke dhup dhup phirte hain
ghair un ke kuche mein sae sae baitha hai
is taraf bhi ai sahab iltifat-e-yak-mizhgan
ek gharib mahfil mein sar jhukae baitha hai
dur-bash ai gulchin wa hai dida-e-nargis
aaj har gul-e-nazuk khar khae baitha hai
kyun suna nahin deta faisla muqaddar ka
nama-bar mere aage khat chhupae baitha hai
subh ki hawa un se sirf itna kah dena
koi shama ki ab tak lau badhae baitha hai
