mizaj-e-mustaqil dena shuur-e-moatabar dena

mizaj-e-mustaqil dena shuur-e-moatabar dena
jhuka pae na jis ko waqt ka tufan wo sar dena
mujhe umr-e-khizar dena ki umr-e-mukhtasar dena
mere afkar lekin zinda-e-jawed kar dena
jo utthe samt-e-mazi wo nazar mera nahin hasil
pas-e-diwar-e-mustaqbil jo dekhe wo nazar dena
mujahid jang ke maidan ko jae jis tarah ghar se
ye manzar zehn mein rakh kar mujhe izn-e-safar dena
agar is razm-gah-e-dahr mein jina hi hai mujh ko
to phir in yurishon mein zinda rahne ka hunar dena
siwa ho jae jis se azmat-e-dida-wari 'gauhar'
nazar dena to yarab phir mujhe aisi nazar dena

KHwab tere hain ye KHwabon ka nagar tera hai

By

khwab tere hain ye khwabon ka nagar tera hai
zikr-e-anfas mein har sham-o-sahar tera hai
jalwa har-gam sar-e-rah guzar tera hai
aankh meri hai magar husn-e-nazar tera hai
be-irada jo uthe hain wo qadam mere hain
be-mahaba jo guzarta hai safar tera hai
meri be-rabt duaon ko rasai de de
lafz mere hain magar bab-e-asar tera hai
zindagi kahta hun main jis ko zaban mein apni
wo safar mera sahi izn-e-safar tera hai
sarhaden hain meri nazron ki ye mehr-o-mahtab
aur un se bhi jo aage hai wo dar tera hai
nasl-o-mazhab ki koi qaid nahin hai 'gauhar'
zikr har lab pe ba-alfaz-e-digar tera hai

kabhi shuur kabhi dil kabhi suKHan mahke

By

kabhi shuur kabhi dil kabhi sukhan mahke
kaho wo sher ki duniya-e-fikr-o-fan mahke
ata hamein bhi jo ho jae 'mir' ka andaz
to lafz lafz se mani ka pairahan mahke
rahun khamosh to phulon ko nind aa jae
padhun jo sher to lafzon ka bankpan mahke
larazte honton ki wo guftugu to yaad nahin
bas itna yaad hai barson lab-o-dahan mahke
dabi hui hai jo sadiyon se gham ki chingari
bhadak uthe to khayalon ki anjuman mahke
kabhi to aisa zamana bhi aae ai 'gauhar'
mohabbaton ki faza se mera watan mahke

kabhi shadman kabhi pur-alam tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

By

kabhi shadman kabhi pur-alam tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
wo karam ke rup mein ek sitam tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
wahi ahd-e-rasm-o-rah-e-wafa wo dil-o-nazar ka moamla
mujhe yaad hai mere mohtaram tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
wahi ghuncha ghuncha-o-gul-ba-gul wahi rukh-ba-rukh wahi dil-ba-dil
kabhi the chaman ki bahaar hum tumhein yaad ho ho ki na yaad ho
wo fusun-taraaz si ek nazar kabhi muntazir kabhi muntazir
wo fasana-saz shab-e-alam tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho
kabhi wo tabassum-e-zer-e-lab kabhi khamushi se wo be-sabab
kabhi sarkhushi kabhi aankh nam tumhein yaad ho ki na yaad ho

haqiqaton se kabhi inhiraf mat kije

By

haqiqaton se kabhi inhiraf mat kije
qusur jis ka ho us ko muaf mat kije
kisi buzurg ke chehre pe kuchh nahin likkha
adab to kijiye us ka tawaf mat kije
khata ho aap ki to kijiye ise taslim
khata na ho to kabhi e'tiraf mat kije
muahida ho talluq ho inkisari ho
kabhi mizaj ke apne khilaf mat kije
wo ghar ka raaz ho ya doston ki baaten hon
kisi pe un ka kabhi inkishaf mat kije
ghazal ishaaron kinayon ka nam hai 'gauhar'
ghazal mein baat koi saf saf mat kije

gham dete hain to iztirab na de

By

gham dete hain to iztirab na de
zindagi de magar azab na de
muskurane ke hain kai mafhum
muskura kar koi jawab na de
is ki tabir kis se puchhunga
meri aankhon ko koi khwab na de
khud-shanasi mitae deta hai
aish itna bhi be-hisab na de
mujh ko jo chahe de saza lekin
maslahat ki koi naqab na de
teri zid hai yahi agar saqi
zahr de de magar sharab na de
