gardish-e-charKH se qayam nahin

gardish-e-charkh se qayam nahin
subh ghar mein hun main to sham nahin

kabhi to munh se boliye sahab
be-dahan ho to kuchh kalam nahin

jaan-ba-lab hun firaq-dil-bar mein
subh jita raha to sham nahin

kis ke zulfon ke baal bikhre hain
mere nabzon mein intizam nahin

roz-o-shab zikr-e-zulf-o-arif hai
ye kahani kabhi tamam nahin

kya raqibon se main jihad karun
mere hamrah wo imam nahin

tera diwana mar gaya shayad
aaj galiyon mein azhdaham nahin

hijr mein ye sharab hai tezab
hath par aabla hai jam nahin

kya samajh kar ye naz karte hain
amradon ka koi ghulam nahin

walwale the shabab tak apne
ab hamari wo dhum-dham nahin

is taraf se hain sajde par sajde
us taraf se kabhi salam nahin

dil ko le kar alag hue aise
ki kabhi tum ko hum se kaam nahin

mauj dariya-e-paemali hai
us jafakar ka khiram nahin

bosa le kar maza mila mujh ko
hanzal us ka zaqan hai aam nahin

kis ke bal par wo shokh hai maghrur
khat-e-shab-rang fauj-e-sham nahin

'bahr' bahke hue hain ahl-e-dil
nashsha-e-ab-e-zar mudam nahin
