wahshat-e-gham mein sukun zist ko milta bhi kahan

wahshat-e-gham mein sukun zist ko milta bhi kahan
tha bayaban mein diwar ka saya bhi kahan
ek muddat se na yaad aai na jaan tadpi hai
dil tujhe bhul gaya ho magar aisa bhi kahan
husn bhi wo na raha pahla sa dildar-e-hunar
aah pahli si wo ab azmat-e-tesha bhi kahan
maslahat-bin hai agar ishq-e-junun-pesha to kya
ab wo pahle ki tera wusat-e-sahra bhi kahan
koi manzil hi na thi manzil-e-gham se aage
qafila apni tamannaon ka rukta bhi kahan
ghair-mahdud khalaon mein safar karta hun
aur rasai ka ye aalam hai ki bhatka bhi kahan
nikhat-o-nur se mamur faza hai phir bhi
to ki is rahguzar se abhi guzra bhi kahan
haram-o-dair se ye sar jo kashida aaya
jhuk gaya dar pe tere aur ye jhukta bhi kahan
khak udata hai abhi dasht-e-talab hi mein 'salam'
dil-e-ruswa ye hua hai abhi ruswa bhi kahan
