Ghazal 10

Sher 5

us ke ruḳhsār dekh jiitā huuñ

aarzī merī zindagānī hai

us ke ruKHsar dekh jita hun

aarzi meri zindagani hai

na sair-e-bāġh na milnā na mīThī bāteñ haiñ

ye din bahār ke ai jaan muft jaate haiñ

na sair-e-bagh na milna na miThi baaten hain

ye din bahaar ke ai jaan muft jate hain

mukh dikhāyā hai to na raat karo

zulf kyun kholte ho din ko sanam

mukh dikhaya hai to na raat karo
