Ghazal 18

Sher 12

un mahfil meñ 'zafar' log mujhe chāhte haiñ

vo jo kal kahte the dīvāna bhī saudā.ī bhī

un ki mahfil mein 'zafar' log mujhe chahte hain

wo jo kal kahte the diwana bhi saudai bhi

aa mire chāñd raat suunī hai

baat bantī nahīñ sitāroñ se

aa mere chand raat suni hai

baat banti nahin sitaron se

ek bhī āftāb ban na sakā

laakh TuuTe hue sitāroñ se

ek bhi aaftab ban na saka

lakh TuTe hue sitaron se

thak ke patthar tarah baiThā huuñ raste meñ 'zafar'

jaane kab uTh sakūñ kyā jāniye kab ghar jā.ūñ

thak ke patthar ki tarah baiTha hun raste mein 'zafar'

jaane kab uTh sakun kya jaaniye kab ghar jaun

saañs lene ko jiinā nahīñ kahte haiñ 'zafar'

zindagī thī jo tire vasl imkāñ hotā

sans lene ko hi jina nahin kahte hain 'zafar'

zindagi thi jo tere wasl ka imkan hota
