nigah-e-shauq ko jab tera naqsh-e-pa na mila

nigah-e-shauq ko jab tera naqsh-e-pa na mila
mujhe bhi husn-e-haqiqat ka aaina na mila
jise bhi dekho wahi ajnabi sa lagta hai
tumhaare shahr mein koi bhi aashna na mila
hudud-e-dair-o-kalisa mein khanqahon mein
bahut talash kiya hum ko parsa na mila
tadapte rah gae din mein bhi raushni ke liye
charagh bechne walon ko mashla na mila
hamare dars pe ghairon ne pa liya sahil
hamare apne safine ko nakhuda na mila
sukun milega unhen kis ke aastane par
wo ahl-e-dard jinhen tera aasra na mila
mata-e-dil wo meri lutne chala tha magar
ye aur baat ki rahzan ko hausla na mila
meri wafaon pe ilzam to bahut aae
meri wafaon ka mujh ko magar sila na mila
wafa ke tazkire hum ne bahut sune 'khalid'
magar jahan mein koi hum ko ba-wafa na mila
