safar ka silsila aaKHir kahan tamam karun

safar ka silsila aakhir kahan tamam karun
kahan charagh chalaun kahan qayam karun
sabhi ke sar pe hai rakkhi kulah nakhwat ki
qadon ki bhid mein kis kis ka ehtiram karun
hain jitne mohre yahan sare pitne wale hain
kise main shah karun apna kise ghulam karun
ajib shahr hai koi sukhan-shanas nahin
mata-e-fikr main mansub kis ke nam karun
mera shanasa hai koi na ham-zaban hai koi
dayar-e-ghair mein phir kis se main kalam karun
sajaun us ke liye ghar bichhaun palken 'zafar'
wo aa raha hai to kuchh main bhi ehtimam karun
