  • Ghazal


har lahza meri zist mujhe bar-e-garan hai


har lahza mirī ziist mujhe bār-e-garāñ hai
vo merā lahū hai ki mirā dushman-e-jāñ hai

is daur meñ jiine kī sazā kaaT rahā huuñ
har saañs kī raftār meñ ehsās-e-ziyāñ hai

uḌ jaate haiñ shāḳhoñ se sahar hote hī taa.ir
bas rain-baserā hai yahāñ jo bhī makāñ hai

donoñ hī junūñ-ḳhezī ke tūfāñ meñ giraftār
tahzīb-e-ibādat na yahāñ hai na vahāñ hai

rishte sabhī zanjīr-e-zarūrat se juḌe the
ab kaun ye pūchhe ki 'taqī' hai to kahāñ hai

har lahza meri zist mujhe bar-e-garan hai
wo mera lahu hai ki mera dushman-e-jaan hai

is daur mein jine ki saza kaT raha hun
har sans ki raftar mein ehsas-e-ziyan hai

uD jate hain shaKHon se sahar hote hi tair
bas rain-basera hai yahan jo bhi makan hai

donon hi junun-KHezi ke tufan mein giraftar
tahzib-e-ibaadat na yahan hai na wahan hai

rishte sabhi zanjir-e-zarurat se juDe the
ab kaun ye puchhe ki 'taqi' hai to kahan hai
