Ghazal 8

Sher 10

vaqt mohlat na degā phir tum ko

tiir jis dam kamān se niklā

waqt mohlat na dega phir tum ko

tir jis dam kaman se nikla

dil ne har daur meñ duniyā se baġhāvat hai

dil se tum rasm-o-rivāyāt bāteñ na karo

dil ne har daur mein duniya se baghawat ki hai

dil se tum rasm-o-riwayat ki baaten na karo

alfāz madah-ḳhvāñ the qalam the bike hue

kaise tarāsh lete koī shāh-kār ham

alfaz madah-KHwan the qalam the bike hue

kaise tarash lete koi shah-kar hum

ham-nafas ḳhvāb-e-junūñ koī ta.abīr na dekh

raqs karnā hai to phir paañv zanjīr na dekh

ham-nafas KHwab-e-junun ki koi tabir na dekh

raqs karna hai to phir panw ki zanjir na dekh

kitne be-nūr haiñ ye hañgāme

maiñ bhare shahr meñ bhī huuñ tanhā

kitne be-nur hain ye hangame

main bhare shahr mein bhi hun tanha
