  • Ghazal


main dasht-e-zindagi ko chala tha nikhaarne


maiñ dasht-e-zindagī ko chalā thā nikhārne
ik qahqaha lagāyā guzartī bahār ne

guzrā huuñ jab sulagte hue naqsh chhoḌtā
dekhā hai mujh ko ġhaur se har rahguzār ne

mai-kash ne jām-e-zahr hī muñh se lagā liyā
pāgal banā diyā jo nashe ke utaar ne

insān hadd-e-nūr se aage nikal gayā
chhoḌā magar na us ko lahū kī pukār ne

un mah-ruḳhoñ kī ham se jo ye be-ruḳhī rahī
jaanā paḌegā chāñd pe kuchh din guzārne

karte haiñ vo sitāre bhī ab mujh pe chashmakeñ
chamkā diyā jinheñ mirī shab-hā-e-tār ne

un gul-kadoñ ko bhī koī ai kaash dekhtā
jhulsā hai jin ko ātish-e-fasl-e-bahār ne

lā.ūñ kahāñ se un ke liye aur ġham-gusār
jo ġham diye haiñ mujh ko mire ġham-gusār ne

merī sarisht meñ thī mohabbat kī parvarish
mujh ko qalam diyā mire parvardigār ne

baḳhshā hai apne husn kā partav mujhe 'karam'
fitrat ke har jamīl-o-hasīñ shāhkār ne

main dasht-e-zindagi ko chala tha nikhaarne
ek qahqaha lagaya guzarti bahaar ne

guzra hun jab sulagte hue naqsh chhoDta
dekha hai mujh ko ghaur se har rahguzar ne

mai-kash ne jam-e-zahr hi munh se laga liya
pagal bana diya jo nashe ke utar ne

insan hadd-e-nur se aage nikal gaya
chhoDa magar na us ko lahu ki pukar ne

un mah-ruKHon ki hum se jo ye be-ruKHi rahi
jaana paDega chand pe kuchh din guzarne

karte hain wo sitare bhi ab mujh pe chashmaken
chamka diya jinhen meri shab-ha-e-tar ne

un gul-kadon ko bhi koi ai kash dekhta
jhulsa hai jin ko aatish-e-fasl-e-bahaar ne

laun kahan se un ke liye aur gham-gusar
jo gham diye hain mujh ko mere gham-gusar ne

meri sarisht mein thi mohabbat ki parwarish
mujh ko qalam diya mere parwardigar ne

baKHsha hai apne husn ka partaw mujhe 'karam'
fitrat ke har jamil-o-hasin shahkar ne
