do ghaDi sae mein jalne ki aziyyat aur hai


do ghaḌī saa.e meñ jalne kī aziyyat aur hai
rāste meñ ek dīvār-e-sharāfat aur hai

ab bahut duurī nahīñ va.adoñ kī manzil aa chalī
do qadam bas moḌ tak chalne kī zahmat aur hai

dāmanoñ par DhūñDhiye ab kyuuñ charāġhoñ kā lahū
ham na kahte the havā-ḳhvāhoñ kī niyyat aur hai

phir basārat kā ta.āqub phir ujāle kā safar
Dhal chukī hai raat pal do pal kī mohlat aur hai

ghar se ḳhud nikle the ḳhemoñ se nikalvā.e ga.e
vo pashemānī alag thī ye nadāmat aur hai

sub.h-e-ishrat ko shab-e-ġham ke tanāzur meñ na dekh
vo qayāmat dūsrī thī ye qayāmat aur hai

zaḳhm-zāroñ se to sab nashtar-kade nazdīk the
chārasāzo kyā huā kitnī masāfat aur hai

do ghaDi sae mein jalne ki aziyyat aur hai
raste mein ek diwar-e-sharafat aur hai

ab bahut duri nahin wadon ki manzil aa chali
do qadam bas moD tak chalne ki zahmat aur hai

damanon par DhunDhiye ab kyun charaghon ka lahu
hum na kahte the hawa-KHwahon ki niyyat aur hai

phir basarat ka taaqub phir ujale ka safar
Dhal chuki hai raat pal do pal ki mohlat aur hai

ghar se KHud nikle the KHemon se nikalwae gae
wo pashemani alag thi ye nadamat aur hai

subh-e-ishrat ko shab-e-gham ke tanazur mein na dekh
wo qayamat dusri thi ye qayamat aur hai

zaKHm-zaron se to sab nashtar-kade nazdik the
chaarasazo kya hua kitni masafat aur hai
