MORE BY Bashir Badr

    jab tak nigār-e-dāsht siina dukhā na thā

    sahrā meñ koī lāla-e-sahrā khilā na thā

    do jhīleñ us āñkhoñ meñ lahrā ke so ga.iiñ

    us vaqt merī umr dariyā chaḌhā na thā

    jaagī na thiiñ nasoñ meñ tamannā nāgineñ

    us gandumī sharāb ko jab tak chakhā na thā

    DhūñDā karo jahān-e-tahayyur meñ umr bhar

    vo chaltī phirtī chhāñv hai maiñ ne kahā na thā

    ik bevafā ke sāmne aañsū bahāte ham

    itnā hamārī aañkh paanī marā na thā

    vo kaale hoñT jaam samajh kar chaḌhā ga.e

    vo aab jis se maiñ ne vuzū tak kiyā na thā

    sab log apne apne ḳhudāoñ ko laa.e the

    ek ham aise the ki hamārā ḳhudā na thā

    vo kaalī āñkheñ shahr meñ mash.hūr thiiñ bahut

    tab un pe moTe shīshoñ chashma chaḌhā na thā

    maiñ sāhib-e-ġhazal thā hasīnoñ bazm meñ

    sar par ghanere baal the māthā khulā na thā

    jab tak nigar-e-dasht ka sina dukha na tha

    sahra mein koi lala-e-sahra khila na tha

    do jhilen us ki aankhon mein lahra ke so gain

    us waqt meri umr ka dariya chaDha na tha

    jagi na thin nason mein tamanna ki naginen

    us gandumi sharab ko jab tak chakha na tha

    DhunDa karo jahan-e-tahayyur mein umr bhar

    wo chalti phirti chhanw hai main ne kaha na tha

    ek bewafa ke samne aansu bahate hum

    itna hamari aankh ka pani mara na tha

    wo kale honT jam samajh kar chaDha gae

    wo aab jis se main ne wuzu tak kiya na tha

    sab log apne apne KHudaon ko lae the

    ek hum aise the ki hamara KHuda na tha

    wo kali aankhen shahr mein mashhur thin bahut

    tab un pe moTe shishon ka chashma chaDha na tha

    main sahib-e-ghazal tha hasinon ki bazm mein

    sar par ghanere baal the matha khula na tha
