  • Ghazal


ashk mere hain magar dida-e-nam hai us ka


ashk mere haiñ magar dīda-e-nam hai us kā
ye jo hoñToñ pe tabassum hai karam hai us kā

an-kahī baat bhalā likkhūñ to likkhūñ kaise
saade kāġhaz pe koī raaz raqam hai us kā

fāsle aise ki ik umr meñ tai ho na sakeñ
qurbateñ aisī ki ḳhud mujh meñ janam hai us kā

sañg-o-āhan kā baḌā shahr bhī vīrāna lage
ye junūñ merā hai aur dasht-e-sitam hai us kā

dard ban kar mire siine meñ paḌā rahtā hai
ye mirā dil hai ki ik naqsh-e-qadam hai us kaa?

ek tūfāñ kī tarah kab se kināra-kash hai
phir bhī 'bāqar' mirī nazroñ meñ bharam hai us kā

ashk mere hain magar dida-e-nam hai us ka
ye jo honTon pe tabassum hai karam hai us ka

an-kahi baat bhala likkhun to likkhun kaise
sade kaghaz pe koi raaz raqam hai us ka

fasle aise ki ek umr mein tai ho na saken
qurbaten aisi ki KHud mujh mein janam hai us ka

sang-o-ahan ka baDa shahr bhi virana lage
ye junun mera hai aur dasht-e-sitam hai us ka

dard ban kar mere sine mein paDa rahta hai
ye mera dil hai ki ek naqsh-e-qadam hai us ka?

ek tufan ki tarah kab se kinara-kash hai
phir bhi 'baqar' meri nazron mein bharam hai us ka
