Sher of Syed Zameer Jafri

bahan iltijā maañ mohabbat saath chaltī hai

vafā-e-dostāñ bahr-e-mashaqqat saath chaltī hai

bahan ki iltija man ki mohabbat sath chalti hai

wafa-e-dostan bahr-e-mashaqqat sath chalti hai

ab ik rūmāl mere saath hai

jo merī vālida ke haath hai

ab ek rumal mere sath ka hai

jo meri walida ke hath ka hai

ham ne kitne dhoke meñ sab jīvan barbādī

gaal pe ik til dekh ke un ke saare jism se shādī

hum ne kitne dhoke mein sab jiwan ki barbaadi ki

gal pe ek til dekh ke un ke sare jism se shadi ki

ek lamha bhī masarrat bahut hotā hai

log jiine salīqa kahāñ rakhte haiñ

ek lamha bhi masarrat ka bahut hota hai

log jine ka saliqa hi kahan rakhte hain

hañs magar hañsne se pahle soch le

ye na ho phir umr bhar ronā paḌe

hans magar hansne se pahle soch le

ye na ho phir umr bhar rona paDe

dard meñ lazzat bahut ashkoñ meñ ra.anā.ī bahut

ai ġham-e-hastī hameñ duniyā pasand aa.ī bahut

dard mein lazzat bahut ashkon mein ranai bahut

ai gham-e-hasti hamein duniya pasand aai bahut

un darvāza thā mujh se bhī sivā mushtāq-e-dīd

maiñ ne bāhar kholnā chāhā to vo andar khulā

un ka darwaza tha mujh se bhi siwa mushtaq-e-did

main ne bahar kholna chaha to wo andar khula
