Sher 69

na jaane sher meñ kis dard havāla thā

ki jo bhī lafz thā vo dil dukhāne vaalā thā

na jaane sher mein kis dard ka hawala tha

ki jo bhi lafz tha wo dil dukhane wala tha

dar-ba-dar Thokareñ khā.īñ to ye mālūm huā

ghar kise kahte haiñ kyā chiiz hai be-ghar honā

dar-ba-dar Thokaren khain to ye malum hua

ghar kise kahte hain kya chiz hai be-ghar hona

nikal ga.e haiñ jo bādal barasne vaale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsegā chashm-e-tar ke baġhair

nikal gae hain jo baadal barasne wale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsega chashm-e-tar ke baghair

kisī ko kyā batā.ūñ kaun huuñ maiñ

ki apnī dāstāñ bhūlā huā huuñ

kisi ko kya bataun kaun hun main

ki apni dastan bhula hua hun

kaun hai kaun maiñ kaisī vafā

hāsil-e-hastī haiñ kuchh rusvā.iyāñ

kaun tu hai kaun main kaisi wafa

hasil-e-hasti hain kuchh ruswaiyan
