kuchh hisab ai sitam ijad to kar

kuchh hisab ai sitam ijad to kar
kis qadar zulm kiye yaad to kar

zinda ja sakte hain bahar ki nahin
dekh asiron ko ab aazad to kar

khak kyun chhan raha hai batla
tha bhi dil pas tere yaad to kar

are munh dhanp ke rone wale
dam ulat jaega fariyaad to kar

hae kya hoga bahaar aane tak
qaidi-e-kunj-e-kafas yaad to kar

wo tasalli hi sahi ai sayyaad
kuchh muayyan meri miad to kar

hai tanaffur jo buton se waiz
sifat-e-husn-e-khuda-dad to kar

ja kabhi najd ki jaanib bhi 'aziz'
ruh-e-majnun ko zara shad to kar
