  • Ghazal


ye hadsa bhi shahr-e-nigaran mein ho gaya


ye hādsa bhī shahr-e-nigārāñ meñ ho gayā
be-chehragī kī bhiiḌ meñ har chehra kho gayā

jis ko sazā milī thī ki jaage tamām umr
suntā huuñ aaj maut kī bāñhoñ meñ so gayā

harkat kisī meñ hai na harārat kisī meñ hai
kyā shahr thā jo barf kī chaTTān ho gayā

maiñ us ko nafratoñ ke sivā kuchh na de sakā
vo chāhatoñ kā biij mire dil meñ bo gayā

marham to rakh sakā na koī mere zaḳhm par
jo aayā ek nishtar-e-tāza chubho gayā

yā kījiye qubūl ki har chehra zard hai
yā kahiye har nigāh ko yarqān ho gayā

maiñ ne to apne ġham kī kahānī sunā.ī thī
kyuuñ apne apne ġham meñ har ik shaḳhs kho gayā

us dushman-e-vafā ko duā de rahā huuñ maiñ
merā na ho sakā vo kisī kā to ho gayā

ik māh-vash ne chuum lī peshāni-e-'hafīz'
dilchasp hādsa thā jo kal raat ho gayā

ye hadsa bhi shahr-e-nigaran mein ho gaya
be-chehragi ki bhiD mein har chehra kho gaya

jis ko saza mili thi ki jage tamam umr
sunta hun aaj maut ki banhon mein so gaya

harkat kisi mein hai na hararat kisi mein hai
kya shahr tha jo barf ki chaTTan ho gaya

main us ko nafraton ke siwa kuchh na de saka
wo chahaton ka bij mere dil mein bo gaya

marham to rakh saka na koi mere zaKHm par
jo aaya ek nishtar-e-taza chubho gaya

ya kijiye qubul ki har chehra zard hai
ya kahiye har nigah ko yarqan ho gaya

main ne to apne gham ki kahani sunai thi
kyun apne apne gham mein har ek shaKHs kho gaya

us dushman-e-wafa ko dua de raha hun main
mera na ho saka wo kisi ka to ho gaya

ek mah-wash ne chum li peshani-e-'hafiz'
dilchasp hadsa tha jo kal raat ho gaya
