falak se chand chaman se gulab le aae

falak se chand chaman se gulab le aae
kahan se koi tumhaara jawab le aae
hazar rang hain husn-o-jamal ke lekin
wo rang aur hai jis ko shabab le aae
ajib turfa-tamasha hai zindagi meri
khushi bhi aae to gham be-hisab le aae
tere khamir mein shamil hai gumrahi warna
falak se kitne payambar kitab le aae
idhar wo tishna-labi hai ki jaan-ba-lab hain hum
udhar wo dast-e-karam par sarab le aae
usi ki aaj bhi rahti hain muntazir aankhen
jo aa bhi jae to sad iztirab le aae
ye sher-goi hai 'akhlaq' koi khel nahin
kare wo mashq jo chhalni mein aab le aae
