Ghazal 24

Sher-o-Shayari 23

sunā hai shahr naqsha badal gayā 'mahfūz'

to chal ke ham bhī zarā apne ghar ko dekhte haiñ

suna hai shahr ka naqsha badal gaya 'mahfuz'

to chal ke hum bhi zara apne ghar ko dekhte hain

bichhaḌ ke ḳhaak hue ham to kyā zarā dekho

ġhubār ke usī kārvāñ se miltā hai

bichhaD ke KHak hue hum to kya zara dekho

ghubar ja ke usi karwan se milta hai

kahāñ kisī ko thī fursat fuzūl bātoñ

tamām raat vahāñ zikr bas tumhārā thā

kahan kisi ko thi fursat fuzul baaton ki

tamam raat wahan zikr bas tumhaara tha

nahīñ āsmāñ tirī chaal meñ nahīñ ā.ūñgā

maiñ palaT ke ab kisī haal meñ nahīñ ā.ūñgā

nahin aasman teri chaal mein nahin aaunga

main palaT ke ab kisi haal mein nahin aaunga

us se milnā aur bichhaḌnā der tak phir sochnā

kitnī dushvārī ke saath aa.e the āsānī meñ ham

us se milna aur bichhaDna der tak phir sochna

kitni dushwari ke sath aae the aasani mein hum
