MORE BY Mah Talat Zahidi

    roz-o-shab

    halqa-e-āfāt haiñ

    har lahza javāñ

    silsila vaqt gardish yahāñ

    sab haiñ pābandī-e-auqāt-e-zamāna meñ magan

    jān-o-tan fahm-o-ḳhirad hosh-o-gumāñ

    tum tanhā nahīñ is sail-e-ravāñ meñ majbūr

    maiñ bhī jiitī huuñ yahāñ ḳhud se gurezāñ ho kar

    phir bhī ik lamhe fursat jo mayassar aa.e

    dil vahīñ chupke se dhaḌkan ko jagā detā hai

    tār-rātoñ meñ bikhartī haiñ rupahlī kirneñ

    chāñdnī pichhlī mulāqātoñ ke ā.īne meñ

    roz-e-ā.inda se miltī hai gale

    kahtī hai

    an-kahī bātoñ ḳhushbū se mo.attar rakhnā

    apnī āvāz abhī

    zindagī kitnī be-mehr sahmī

    phir bhī bahār aa.egī

    āñkhoñ meñ basā.e rakhnā mere andāz abhī

    roz-o-shab

    halqa-e-afat hain

    har lahza jawan

    silsila waqt ki gardish ka yahan

    sab hain pabandi-e-auqat-e-zamana mein magan

    jaan-o-tan fahm-o-KHirad hosh-o-guman

    tum hi tanha nahin is sail-e-rawan mein majbur

    main bhi jiti hun yahan KHud se gurezan ho kar

    phir bhi ek lamhe ki fursat jo mayassar aae

    dil wahin chupke se dhaDkan ko jaga deta hai

    tar-raaton mein bikharti hain rupahli kirnen

    chandni pichhli mulaqaton ke aaine mein

    roz-e-ainda se milti hai gale

    kahti hai

    an-kahi baaton ki KHushbu se moattar rakhna

    apni aawaz abhi

    zindagi kitni hi be-mehr sahmi

    phir bhi bahaar aaegi

    aankhon mein basae rakhna mere andaz abhi
