insan ki haalat par ab waqt bhi hairan hai

insan ki haalat par ab waqt bhi hairan hai
har shakhs ke hathon mein apna hi gareban hai

kichad na uchhaalen hum kirdar pe auron ke
hai chand barahna gar suraj bhi to uryan hai

ab log sabaq hum se kyun kar nahin lete hain
ab pas hamare to ibrat ka bhi saman hai

tabdili-e-khwahish par ye zehn bhi hairan hai
ab dil ye mohabbat ke sae se gurezan hai

har rose hi bahta hai rukhsar pe raaton ki
ye ashk falak ke jo chehre pe bhi larzan hai

kyun us ko mohabbat ka ehsas nahin hota
aankhon mein meri ab to har dard numayan hai

duniya se to ladne ka aaega maza kitna
pane ki tamanna mein mitne ka bhi imkan hai
