…Kis qadar jald badal jatay hain insaan janaan…


 

Ab ke tajdeed-e-wafa ka nahin imkaan janaan
Yaad kya tujh ko dilaaein tera paiman janaan

Youn hi mosam ki ada dekh ke yaad aya hai
Kis qadar jald badal jaate hein insaan janaan

Zindagi teri ataa thi so tere naam ki hai
Hum ne jaise bhi basar ki tera ehsaan janaan

Dil yeh kehta hai ke shaid ho fasurda tu bhi
Dil ki kya baat karein dil to hai nadaan janaan

Awal Awal ki muhabaat ke nashe yaad to kar
Be-piye bhi tera chehra tha gulistaan janaan

Aakhir Aakhir too yeh aalam hai ke ab hosh nahin
Rag-e-Meena sulag uthi ke rag-e-jaan janaan

Mudatton se yahi aalam na tawaqqu na umeed
Dil pukare hi chala jata hai janaan janaan

Hum bhi kya saada the hum ne bhi samajh rakha tha
Gham-e-Doraan se juda hai gham-e-janaan janaan

Ab ke kuch aise saji mefil-e-yaraan janaan
Sar ba-zaanu hai koi sar ba-garebaan janaan

Har koi apni hi awaaz se kaanp uthta hai
Har koi apne hi saaye se harasaan janaan

Jis ko dekho wohi zanjeer bapaa lagta hai
Shaher ka Shaher huwa dakhil-e-zindaan janaan

Ab tera zikr bhi shaid hi ghazal mein aaye
Aor se aor huwe dard ke unwaan janaan

Hum ke roothi hoi rut ko bhi mana lete the
Hum ne dekha hi na tha mosam-e-hijraan janaan

Hosh aaya to sabhi khawab the reza reza
Jaise urte huwe aoraaq-e-preshan janaan
