KHwab ka aks kahan KHwab ki tabir mein hai


ḳhvāb kā aks kahāñ ḳhvāb kī ta.abīr meñ hai
mujh ko ma.alūm hai jo kuchh mirī taqdīr meñ hai

merī rūdād-e-mohabbat ko na sunñe vaale
tujh meñ vo baat kahāñ jo tirī tasvīr meñ hai

paikar-e-ḳhāk bhī huuñ bā.is-e-kaunain bhī huuñ
kitnā ījāz numāyāñ mirī tafsīr meñ hai

phuul ban kar bhī ye ehsās shagūfe ko nahīñ
merī taḳhrīb kā pahlū mirī ta.amīr meñ hai

husn ke saath tujhe husn-e-vafā bhī miltā
isī halqe kī zarūrat tirī zanjīr meñ hai

vus.at-e-dāman-e-rahmat kī qasam khātā huuñ
uzr-e-taqsīr bhī dāḳhil-e-had-e-taqsīr meñ hai

ek tahdār ye misra.a hai javāb-e-ḳhat meñ
kis qadar shoḳh-bayānī tirī tahrīr meñ hai

kyā tamāshā hai ye ai pā-e-junūn-e-rusvā
kabhī zanjīr se bāhar kabhī zanjīr meñ hai

jaane kab us pe ujāle ko taras aa.egā
vo siyah-posh fazā jo mirī taqdīr meñ hai

guftugū hotī hai aksar shab-e-tanhā.ī meñ
ek ḳhāmosh takallum tirī tasvīr meñ hai

merī nazroñ meñ yahī husn-e-taġhazzul hai 'urūj'
sher-goī kā mazā pairvī-e-'mīr' meñ hai

KHwab ka aks kahan KHwab ki tabir mein hai
mujh ko malum hai jo kuchh meri taqdir mein hai

meri rudad-e-mohabbat ko na sunne wale
tujh mein wo baat kahan jo teri taswir mein hai

paikar-e-KHak bhi hun bais-e-kaunain bhi hun
kitna ijaz numayan meri tafsir mein hai

phul ban kar bhi ye ehsas shagufe ko nahin
meri taKHrib ka pahlu meri tamir mein hai

husn ke sath tujhe husn-e-wafa bhi milta
isi halqe ki zarurat teri zanjir mein hai

wusat-e-daman-e-rahmat ki qasam khata hun
uzr-e-taqsir bhi daKHil-e-had-e-taqsir mein hai

ek tahdar ye misra hai jawab-e-KHat mein
kis qadar shoKH-bayani teri tahrir mein hai

kya tamasha hai ye ai pa-e-junun-e-ruswa
kabhi zanjir se bahar kabhi zanjir mein hai

jaane kab us pe ujale ko taras aaega
wo siyah-posh faza jo meri taqdir mein hai

guftugu hoti hai aksar shab-e-tanhai mein
ek KHamosh takallum teri taswir mein hai

meri nazron mein yahi husn-e-taghazzul hai 'uruj'
sher-goi ka maza pairwi-e-'mir' mein hai
