tishnagi

ye chhalakta hua jam
main ise pi na sakunga saqi

aazmai hui shai
zaiqa talkh

asar phika hai
chand lamhon ka surur

jaise ek mah-jabin doshiza
muskuraati hui tezi se guzar jati hai

chand lamhon ka surur
tishnagi saghar mai se bhi kahin jati hai

tod de jam-o-subu
tishnagi nam hai jine ka

mujhe jine de
tishnagi roz-e-azal se hai rafiq-e-dil-o-jaan

tishnagi wajh-e-talab
zauq-e-talab husn-e-talab

tishnagi par hai zamane ka madar
raaten jo aankhon hi aankhon mein basar hoti hain

raaten jo pichhle pahar ashkon se munh dhoti hain
subh hoti hai to pi jata hai suraj un ko

raat dhal jati hai shabnam ke hasin qatron mein
subh-dam phulon ke lakhon saghar

muntazir hote hain suraj ke liye
ye subuhi

ki jise pi ke damak uthta hai
ru-e-khurshid-e-jahan-tab

shuaen jis ki
naginen ban ke har ek bund ko pi jati hain

bund aansu ki ho
ya shabnam ki

kurra-e-arz pe baqi nahin rahne pati
khushk ho jate hain sab

gul-e-tar
dida-e-tar

koi khurshid ki saffak tapish pi jae
raat ke chand ka aalam dekho

chand ek ghunt mein pi jata hai suraj ki tapish
shabnam-o-ashk dua karte hain

ki zamane mein sahar ho na kabhi
aur ye silsila-e-tishna-labi

ai khuda dahr mein jari hai na jaane kab se
kaise manun

lab-e-lalin ke hazaron bose
ruh ki pyas bujha sakte hain

ishq sairab nahin ho sakta
ye chhalakta hua jam

main ise pi na sakunga saqi
