kabhi awwal nazar aana kabhi aaKHir hona


kabhī avval nazar aanā kabhī āḳhir honā
aur vaqfoñ se mirā ġhā.eb o hāzir honā

maiñ kisī aur zamāne ke liye huuñ shāyad
is zamāne meñ hai mushkil mirā zāhir honā

maiñ na hone pe hī ḳhush thā magar aise huā phir
mujh ko nā-chār paḌā aap kī ḳhātir honā

duur ho jā.ūñ bhī is bāġh-e-badan se lekin
kahīñ mumkin hī nahīñ aise manāzir honā

vāqa.ī tum ko dikhā.ī hī nahīñ detā huuñ
yā zarūrat hai tumhārī mirā munkir honā

rāsta aap banānā hī koī sahl nahīñ
phir usī rāste kā aap musāfir honā

vo maqāmāt-e-muqaddas vo tire gumbad o qaus
aur mirā aise nishānāt kā zaa.er honā

bādaloñ aur havāoñ meñ uḌā phirtā maiñ
kaash hotā mirī taqdīr meñ taa.ir honā

kaam niklā hai kuchh utnā hī ye pechīda 'zafar'
jitnā āsāñ nazar aayā mujhe shā.er honā

kabhi awwal nazar aana kabhi aaKHir hona
aur waqfon se mera ghaeb o hazir hona

main kisi aur zamane ke liye hun shayad
is zamane mein hai mushkil mera zahir hona

main na hone pe hi KHush tha magar aise hua phir
mujh ko na-chaar paDa aap ki KHatir hona

dur ho jaun bhi is bagh-e-badan se lekin
kahin mumkin hi nahin aise manazir hona

waqai tum ko dikhai hi nahin deta hun
ya zarurat hai tumhaari mera munkir hona

rasta aap banana hi koi sahl nahin
phir usi raste ka aap musafir hona

wo maqamat-e-muqaddas wo tere gumbad o qaus
aur mera aise nishanat ka zaer hona

baadalon aur hawaon mein uDa phirta main
kash hota meri taqdir mein tair hona

kaam nikla hai kuchh utna hi ye pechida 'zafar'
jitna aasan nazar aaya mujhe shaer hona
