dariya guzar gae hain samundar guzar gae

dariya guzar gae hain samundar guzar gae
pyasa raha main kitne hi manzar guzar gae
us jaisa dusra na samaya nigah mein
kitne hasin aankhon se paikar guzar gae
kuchh tir mere sine mein paiwast ho gae
kuchh tir mere sine se bahar guzar gae
aansu bayan karne se qasir rahe jinhen
kya kya na zakhm zat ke andar guzar gae
ek chot dil pe lagti rahi hai tamam shab
dil ki zamin se yaadon ke lashkar guzar gae
wo zabt tha ki aah na nikli zaban se
dil pe hamare kitne hi khanjar guzar gae
manzil thi wo ki hoti gai dur hi 'zafar'
kitne hi rah mein mil ke patthar guzar gae

chamka jo tirgi mein ujala bikhar gaya

chamka jo tirgi mein ujala bikhar gaya
nanha sa ek jugnu bada kaam kar gaya
wo nind ke safar mein to makhmur tha bahut
aankhen khulin to khwab ke manzar se dar gaya
aansu the is qadar meri chashm-e-malal mein
har gosha gosha shahr ka ashkon se bhar gaya
phaili hui hai chandni ehsas mein mere
ye kaun meri zat ke andar utar gaya
har shakhs hi kamanden 'zafar' phenkne laga
ek pal ke waste jo khala mein thahar gaya

hangama-e-gham se tang aa kar izhaar-e-masarrat kar baiThe

hangama-e-gham se tang aa kar izhaar-e-masarrat kar baithe
mashhur thi apni zinda-dili danista shararat kar baithe
koshish to bahut ki hum ne magar paya na gham-e-hasti se mafar
virani-e-dil jab had se badhi ghabra ke mohabbat kar baithe
hasti ke talatum mein pinhan the aish o tarab ke dhaare bhi
afsos hami se bhul hui ashkon pe qanaat kar baithe
zindan-e-jahan se ye nafrat ai hazrat-e-waiz kya kahna
allah ke aage bas na chala bandon se baghawat kar baithe
gulchin ne to koshish kar dali suni ho chaman ki har dali
kanton ne mubarak kaam kiya phulon ki hifazat kar baithe
har chiz nahin hai markaz par ek zarra idhar ek zarra udhar
nafrat se na dekho dushman ko shayad wo mohabbat kar baithe
allah to sab ki sunta hai jurat hai 'shakil' apni apni
'haali' ne zaban se uf bhi na ki 'iqbaal' shikayat kar baithe

shikasta jism darida jabin ki jaanib

shikasta jism darida jabin ki jaanib
kabhi to dekh mere ham-nashin ki jaanib
main apna zakhm dikhaun tujhe ki main dekhun
lahu mein dubi hui aastin ki jaanib
in aasman-mizajon se hai bala ka gurez
palat raha hun main apni zamin ki jaanib
kuchh apne harf ke moti kuchh apne lafz ke phul
uchhaal aaya hun us naznin ki jaanib
kisi ki chashm taaqub ki zad mein rahta hun
main dekhta hun jab us mah-jabin ki jaanib
khud apne hone pe mujh ko yaqin hai lekin
main dekhta hun guman se yaqin ki jaanib
masaf-e-jaan mein khada hun mere adu se kaho
wo dekhta hai yasar-o-yamin ki jaanib
kisi ne tham li badh kar mere faras ki rikab
kisi ne hath badhaya tha zin ki jaanib
khud apne fan ka ye 'shahid' kamal hai naqqad
wo dekhta hi nahin naqidin ki jaanib

phir aaj dard se raushan hua hai sina-e-KHwab

phir aaj dard se raushan hua hai sina-e-khwab
saja hua hai mere zakhm se madina-e-khwab
khizan ki fasl mein jo rizq-e-wahshat-e-shab tha
luta raha hun sar-e-shab wahi khazina-e-khwab
musafiran-e-shab-e-gham tumhaari khair to hai
tadakh ke tut gaya kyun mera nagina-e-khwab
haqiqaton ke bhanwar se koi nikale phir
rawan kare meri jaanib koi safina-e-khwab
bana diya teri sohbat ne be-adab in ko
koi sikhae in aankhon ko ab qarina-e-khwab
koi to ho ki jo mujh ko fareb-e-paiham de
wo koi husn-e-haqiqat ho ya hasina-e-khwab
ye aankh hai hama-dam gardish-e-tajassus mein
talash karti hai mujh mein koi dafina-e-khwab
fishaar-e-nim-shabi se ab in dinon 'shahid'
hai chaak chaak meri jaan qaba-e-sina-e-khwab

KHushiyan mat de mujhko dard-o-kaif ki daulat de sain

khushiyan mat de mujh ko dard-o-kaif ki daulat de sain
mujh ko mere dil ke ek ek zakhm ki ujrat de sain
meri ana ki shah-e-rag par khud meri ana ka khanjar hai
mere lahu ke har qatre ko phir se hiddat de sain
ism-e-zat ka raaz hai jo khud mere upar fash to kar
mere dil ke aaine ko phir se hairat de sain
tod de wo diwar-e-nafas jo beach mein mere hail hai
mujh ko mujh se milne ki ek bar jo mohlat de sain
main bhi to mitti hun wo bhi tere chaak ki mitti hun
apne chaak ki mitti ko achchhi si surat de sain
duniya ka ye jah-o-hasham ye mansab ye jagir hai kya
daulat kaisi mujh ko mera kasa-e-usrat de sain
mere is lahje ko bhi ab ek naya aahang to de
mere sare alfaz-o-afkar ko nudrat de sain
kar-e-jahan ke mansab se tu 'shahid' ko mazul bhi kar
kaam use jo kuchh bhi de wo hasb-e-zarurat de sain
