sain apne nafas ko humne yun hi nahin nakaam kiya

sain apne nafas ko hum ne yun hi nahin nakaam kiya
umr guzari dar-ba-dari mein kab kis ja aaram kiya
ghair to aakhir ghair hain yaro kya sochen ab kis ke tain
hum ne kaun jagah apne ko paband-e-ahkaam kiya
ahl-e-khirad ne jashn-e-bahaaran yun bhi manaya ab ke baras
jaib-o-gareban chaak kiye aur diwanon mein nam kiya
har dar pe ek bang lagawen bhala karo bas bhala karo
ek hi shikwa ek hi nala subh kiya aur sham kiya
unche unche mahlon se kya gharaz hai hum banjaron ko
thandi chhaya dekh ke khud ko kabhi na zer-e-baam kiya
main hi tha ek aankh na bhaon wo to ab bhi yar hain tere
jin logon ne tera charcha bazaron mein aam kiya
dukh na pahuncha kisi ko baba tere 'khalid' se
un ne to sau bar khushi ko gham ke ewaz nilam kiya
