kai dilon mein paDi is se shor-o-shar ki tarah

kai dilon mein padi is se shor-o-shar ki tarah
tera khayal hai udti hui khabar ki tarah
nahin hai tab-e-nazar kam-ayar aankhon mein
chamak raha hai wo chehra dukan-e-zar ki tarah
hategi gard-e-mah-o-sal kis ke hathon se
zamana band pada hai qadim dar ki tarah
khayal-e-ghair nikalta nahin mere dil se
kisi ke ghar mein ye baitha hai apne ghar ki tarah
thithak gaya main use apne samne pa kar
mujhe laga wo guzargah-e-pur-khatar ki tarah
sukun ke sath thakan bhi hai us ki yaadon mein
guzishta umr hai bhule hue safar ki tarah
pas-e-ada-e-nazar chhup gai hai tariki
wo be-naqab hua awwalin sahar ki tarah
jo mere samne muddat ke baad aaya tha
guzar gaya hai uchatti hui nazar ki tarah
dhale hain in mein meri zindagi ke sham-o-sahar
hain mere sher hikayat-e-mukhtasar ki tarah
