gulon ke chehra-e-rangin pe wo nikhaar nahin

gulon ke chehra-e-rangin pe wo nikhaar nahin
bahaar aai magar aalam-e-bahaar nahin

jo hath aata hai daman to chhod deta hun
junun-nawaz abhi mausam-e-bahaar nahin

kisi ki yaad ka aalam na puchhiye mujh se
kabhi qarar hai dil ko kabhi qarar nahin

ye bankpan ye ada ye shabab ka aalam
tum aa gae to kisi ka ab intizar nahin

bahaar par bhi khizan hi ka rang ghaalib hai
hawa zamane ki gulshan ko sazgar nahin

hamare samne wo hain kahin ye khwab na ho
ab apni aankhon pe bhi hum ko eatibar nahin

khud aa gae hain simat kar nigah mein jalwe
visal-e-dost hai ye ranj-e-intizar nahin

mera mazaq udata hai aaina lekin
meri haqiqat-e-gham us pe aashkar nahin

hamari aabla-pai ka faiz kya kahiye
wo kaun sa hai bayaban jo lala-zar nahin

buton ko puj raha hai tere tasawwur mein
gunah kar ke bhi 'faizi' gunahgar nahin
