Ghazal

apni dhun mein rahta hun

aaraa.ish-e-KHayaal bhii ho dil-kushaa bhii ho

apnii dhun me.n rahtaa huu.n

avvalii.n chaa.nd ne kyaa baat sujhaa.ii mujh ko

daur-e-falak jab dohraataa hai mausam-e-gul kii raato.n ko

dayaar-e-dil kii raat me.n charaaG saa jalaa gayaa

dhuup niklii din suhaane ho ga.e

dhuup thii aur baadal chhaayaa thaa

dil me.n aur to kyaa rakkhaa hai

dil me.n ik lahr sii uThii hai abhii

din Dhalaa raat phir aa ga.ii so raho so raho

dukh kii lahar ne chhe.Daa hogaa

fikr-e-taamiir-e-aashiyaa.n bhii hai

ga.e dino.n kaa suraaG le kar kidhar se aayaa kidhar gayaa vo

galii galii aabaad thii jin se kahaa.n ga.e vo log

galii galii mirii yaad bichhii hai pyaare rasta dekh ke chal

girafta-dil hai.n bahut aaj tere diivaane

haasil-e-ishq tiraa husn-e-pashemaa.n hii sahii

jab zaraa tez havaa hotii hai

kaun us raah se guzartaa hai

KHamoshii u.ngliyaa.n chaTKHaa rahii hai

KHvaab me.n raat ham ne kyaa dekhaa

kisii kalii ne bhii dekhaa na aa.nkh bhar ke mujhe

kuchh to ehsaas-e-ziyaa.n thaa pahle

kuchh yaadgaar-e-shahr-e-sitamgar hii le chale.n

mai.n huu.n raat kaa ek bajaa hai

mai.n ne jab likhnaa siikhaa thaa

mumkin nahii.n mataa-e-suKHan mujh se chhiin le

musalsal bekalii dil ko rahii hai

na.e des kaa ra.ng nayaa thaa

na.e kap.De badal kar jaa.uu.n kahaa.n aur baal banaa.uu.n kis ke liye

'naasir' kyaa kahtaa phirtaa hai kuchh na suno to behtar hai

niyyat-e-shauq bhar na jaa.e kahii.n

o mere masruuf KHudaa

phir saavan rut kii pavan chalii tum yaad aa.e

pichhle pahar kaa sannaaTaa thaa

qafas ko chaman se sivaa jaante hai.n

rah-navard-e-bayaabaan-e-Gam sabr kar sabr kar

safar-e-manzil-e-shab yaad nahii.n

sar me.n jab ishq kaa saudaa na rahaa

shabnam-aaluud palak yaad aa.ii

shahr sunsaan hai kidhar jaa.e.n

terii zulfo.n ke bikharne kaa sabab hai ko.ii

tho.Dii der ko jii bahlaa thaa

tire aane kaa dhokaa saa rahaa hai

tire KHayaal se lo de uThii hai tanhaa.ii

tire milne ko bekal ho ga.e hai.n

tujh bin ghar kitnaa suunaa thaa

tuu hai yaa teraa saayaa hai

tuu jab mere ghar aayaa thaa

vo dil-navaaz hai lekin nazar-shanaas nahii.n

vo saahilo.n pe gaane vaale kyaa hu.e

yaad aataa hai roz o shab ko.ii

ye bhii kyaa shaam-e-mulaaqaat aa.ii

ye raat tumhaarii hai chamakte raho taaro

ye shab ye KHayaal-o-KHvaab tere

yuu.n tire husn kii tasviir Gazal me.n aa.e

zabaa.n suKHan ko suKHan baa.nkpan ko tarsegaa

kuchh to ehsaas-e-ziyaa.n thaa pahle
