sham-e-gham yaad nahin subh-e-tarab yaad nahin

sham-e-gham yaad nahin subh-e-tarab yaad nahin
zindagi guzri hai kis tarah ye ab yaad nahin
yaad hai utna ki main dub gaya pasti mein
kitni unchi hui diwar-e-adab yaad nahin
main ne takhliq kiye sher-o-sukhan ke moti
meri takhliq ka tha kaun sabab yaad nahin
jin ke jalwon se tha aabaad jahan-e-dil-o-jaan
meri nazron se nihan ho gae kab yaad nahin
aankh mein ashk hain ashkon mein ghamon ki talkhi
kaise hote hain wo naghmat-e-tarab yaad nahin
itna hi yaad hai muddat se khafa hain wo 'zuhair'
un ki khafagi ka magar koi sabab yaad nahin
