kabhi nazuk kabhi behad kaDa hai


kabhī nāzuk kabhī behad kaḌā hai
vo 'tuġhlaq' sāmne ban kar khaḌā hai

ḳharāsheñ paḌ ga.ī haiñ āsmāñ par
zamīñ se aaj shāyad vo laḌā hai

vo ab be-kār shai hai apne ghar kī
kabhī andar kabhī bāhar paḌā hai

zamāna saath thā bādal meñ us ke
chamaktī dhuup meñ tanhā khaḌā hai

ḳhizāñ kā rañg hai kaisā suhānā
na patta peḌ se koī jhaḌā hai

bahut ilzām kī bārish huī thī
na Thahrī buuñd vo chiknā ghaḌā hai

muqaddar ḳhvāb saa.e kā hai chamkā
mire qad se bhī 'ja.afar' vo baḌā hai

kabhi nazuk kabhi behad kaDa hai
wo 'tughlaq' samne ban kar khaDa hai

KHarashen paD gai hain aasman par
zamin se aaj shayad wo laDa hai

wo ab be-kar shai hai apne ghar ki
kabhi andar kabhi bahar paDa hai

zamana sath tha baadal mein us ke
chamakti dhup mein tanha khaDa hai

KHizan ka rang hai kaisa suhana
na patta peD se koi jhaDa hai

bahut ilzam ki barish hui thi
na Thahri bund wo chikna ghaDa hai

muqaddar KHwab sae ka hai chamka
mere qad se bhi 'jafar' wo baDa hai
