Ghazal 22

Sher 28

ye jo rātoñ ko mujhe ḳhvāb nahīñ aate 'atā'

is matlab hai mirā yaar ḳhafā hai mujh se

ye jo raaton ko mujhe KHwab nahin aate 'ata'

is ka matlab hai mera yar KHafa hai mujh se

zindagī ḳhvāb hai aur ḳhvāb bhī aisā ki miyāñ

sochte rahiye ki is ḳhvāb ta.abīr hai kyā

zindagi KHwab hai aur KHwab bhi aisa ki miyan

sochte rahiye ki is KHwab ki tabir hai kya

ham ne avval to kabhī us ko pukārā nahīñ

aur pukārā to pukārā bhī sadāoñ ke baġhair

hum ne awwal to kabhi us ko pukara hi nahin

aur pukara to pukara bhi sadaon ke baghair
