    maiñ aksar dekhne jaatā thā us ko jis maañ martī

    aur apne dil meñ kahtā thā ye kaisā shaḳhs? hai ab bhī

    jiye jaatā hai āḳhir kaun us ke ghar meñ hai jis ke

    liye ye saḳhtiyāñ sahtā hai taklīfeñ uThātā hai

    thakan din sameTe shab ko ghar jaane pe kaun us ke

    liye dahlīz par baiThā... duā mish.aleñ dil meñ

    jalā.e... dīda-e-be-ḳhvāb har raah darvāze

    darzoñ se nikālegā... ḳhudā mehrbānī ik

    haqīqat sahī kuchh qahr-ālūda bhī hai... jo us

    nā-farmā.iyoñ karte haiñ un ke vāste us ne

    dahaktī aag bhī tayyār rakkhī hai... dil-e-kāfir

    meñ us mehrbānī aur rahmat tasavvur bhī

    jab aayā māmtā ke lafz sūrat meñ aayā hai

    mirī vīrān āñkhoñ ne phir aisā vaqt bhī dekhā

    ki sūraj jal rahā thā raushnī manzar se ġhā.eb thī

    ḳhudā zinda thā lekin us rahmat sar se ġhā.eb thī

    unhī āñkhoñ meñ mere ḳhairiyat se lauT aane par

    na thā ashk-e-masarrat bhii... ki merī raah taknā jin

    bīnā.ī masraf thaa... vo lab do chaar din pahle

    mire māthe pe ho kar sabt jo kahte the'' tum jaao

    tumhārī naukrī baat hai beTe! maiñ achchhī huuñ

    mujhe ab jaan ḳhatra nahīñ hai aur agar kuchh ho

    gayā to ham tumheñ fauran bulā leñge chale jāo''

    (agar mar jā.ūñ maiñ to sabr kar lenaa... ḳhudā-hāfiz)

    magar ye baat 'qāsir' in laboñ se kab sunī maiñ ne

    ise ma.alūm thā shāyad ki maa.eñ mar nahīñ saktīñ

    dil-e-aulād meñ ik yaad ban kar zinda rahtī haiñ

    bulāyā to gayā mujh ko magar vo lab? kahāñ vo lab?

    mire fāqa-zada bachpan ko nīndoñ se gureazāñ,

    ke jo pariyoñ ke afsāne sunāte the to maiñ ḳhvāboñ

    meñ ḳhud ko un ke dastar-ḳhvānoñ par maujūd paatā thā

    sakat baaqī nahīñ hai un laboñ meñ aaj itnī bhī

    ki merī ḳhātir ik harf-e-duā bojh uThā lete

    mujhe jo dekhne aate haiñ kahte haiñ maiñ zinda huuñ

    maiñ khātā huuñ ki ye bhī zindagī ik zarūrat hai

    magar har zā.iqe meñ ek talḳhī izāfa hai

    kisī dīvār saaya ho ho peḌ chhāñv

    mirā jism-e-barhana chhedtī rahtī haiñ kirneñ ab

    huā vo haath ġhā.eb jo ki merī zaat par hote

    hue har vaar ko baḌh baḌh ke ḳhud par rok letā thā

    duā ko haath uThātā huuñ duā.eñ us ḳhātir haiñ

    maiñ goyā huuñ ki merī sab sadā.eñ us ḳhātir haiñ

    mohabbat us ḳhātir hai vafā.eñ us ḳhātir haiñ

    ki merī ibtidā.eñ, intihā.eñ us ḳhātir haiñ

    main aksar dekhne jata tha us ko jis ki man marti

    aur apne dil mein kahta tha ye kaisa shaKHs? hai ab bhi

    jiye jata hai aaKHir kaun us ke ghar mein hai jis ke

    liye ye saKHtiyan sahta hai taklifen uThata hai

    thakan din ki sameTe shab ko ghar jaane pe kaun us ke

    liye dahliz par baiTha dua ki mishalen dil mein

    jalae dida-e-be-KHwab ki har rah darwaze

    ki darzon se nikalega KHuda ki mehrbani ek

    haqiqat hi sahi kuchh qahr-aluda bhi hai jo us

    ki na-farmaiyon karte hain un ke waste us ne

    dahakti aag bhi tayyar rakkhi hai dil-e-kafir

    mein us ki mehrbani aur rahmat ka tasawwur bhi

    jab aaya mamta ke lafz ki surat mein aaya hai

    meri viran aankhon ne phir aisa waqt bhi dekha

    ki suraj jal raha tha raushni manzar se ghaeb thi

    KHuda zinda tha lekin us ki rahmat sar se ghaeb thi

    unhi aankhon mein mere KHairiyat se lauT aane par

    na tha ashk-e-masarrat bhi ki meri rah takna jin

    ki binai ka masraf tha wo lab do chaar din pahle

    mere mathe pe ho kar sabt jo kahte the tum jao

    tumhaari naukri ki baat hai beTe! main achchhi hun

    mujhe ab jaan ka KHatra nahin hai aur agar kuchh ho

    gaya to hum tumhein fauran bula lenge chale jao

    (agar mar jaun main to sabr kar lena KHuda-hafiz)

    magar ye baat 'qasir' in labon se kab suni main ne

    ise malum tha shayad ki maen mar nahin saktin

    dil-e-aulad mein ek yaad ban kar zinda rahti hain

    bulaya to gaya mujh ko magar wo lab? kahan wo lab?

    mere faqa-zada bachpan ko nindon se gureazan, pa

    ke jo pariyon ke afsane sunate the to main KHwabon

    mein KHud ko un ke dastar-KHwanon par maujud pata tha

    sakat baqi nahin hai un labon mein aaj itni bhi

    ki meri KHatir ek harf-e-dua ka bojh uTha lete

    mujhe jo dekhne aate hain kahte hain main zinda hun

    main khata hun ki ye bhi zindagi ki ek zarurat hai

    magar har zaiqe mein ek talKHi ka izafa hai

    kisi diwar ka saya ho ya ho peD ki chhanw

    mera jism-e-barhana chhedti rahti hain kirnen ab

    hua wo hath ghaeb jo ki meri zat par hote

    hue har war ko baDh baDh ke KHud par rok leta tha

    dua ko hath uThata hun duaen us ki KHatir hain

    main goya hun ki meri sab sadaen us ki KHatir hain

    mohabbat us ki KHatir hai wafaen us ki KHatir hain

    ki meri ibtidaen, intihaen us ki KHatir hain
