Ghazal 21

Sher 18

raat din phir rahā huuñ galiyoñ meñ

merā ik shaḳhs kho gayā hai yahāñ

raat din phir raha hun galiyon mein

mera ek shaKHs kho gaya hai yahan

hū-ba-hū aap mūrat hai

zindagī kitnī ḳhūb-sūrat hai

hu-ba-hu aap hi ki murat hai

zindagi kitni KHub-surat hai

jal kar girā huuñ sūkhe shajar se uḌā nahīñ

maiñ ne vahī kiyā jo taqāzā vafā thā

jal kar gira hun sukhe shajar se uDa nahin

main ne wahi kiya jo taqaza wafa ka tha

ka.ī harfoñ se mil kar ban rahā huuñ

bajā.e lafz ke alfāz huuñ maiñ

kai harfon se mil kar ban raha hun

bajae lafz ke alfaz hun main

havā sahlā rahī hai us ke tan ko

vo sho.ala ab sharāre de rahā hai

hawa sahla rahi hai us ke tan ko

wo shoala ab sharare de raha hai
