  • Ghazal

tumhaare shahar mein tha bhi to ek musafir main


tumhāre shahar meñ thā bhī to ik musāfir maiñ
so thak ke baiTh gayā rāste meñ āḳhir maiñ

maiñ har lihāz se sairāb thā ḳhudā kī qasam
ye aur baat ki pyāsā rahā ba-zāhir maiñ

hurūf milte hī āvāz Duub jaatī hai
jo chup rahūñ na batāo to kyā karūñ phir maiñ

kisī bhī samt bhaTaktā phirūñ yamīn-o-yasār
talāsh raah karūñ bhī to kis kī ḳhātir meñ

mirī ḳhushī ko yahī rabt bāhamī hai bahut
mirā muġhannī hai vo aur us kā shā.ir maiñ

ye khel ḳhatm banā hār-jīt ke hogā
ki jis hunar meñ vo yaktā usī meñ māhir maiñ

hazār bāñdhā gayā mujh pe ā.īnoñ kā hisār
kisī pe apne alāva huā na zāhir maiñ

tumhaare shahar mein tha bhi to ek musafir main
so thak ke baiTh gaya raste mein aaKHir main

main har lihaz se sairab tha KHuda ki qasam
ye aur baat ki pyasa raha ba-zahir main

huruf milte hi aawaz Dub jati hai
jo chup rahun na batao to kya karun phir main

kisi bhi samt bhaTakta phirun yamin-o-yasar
talash rah karun bhi to kis ki KHatir mein

meri KHushi ko yahi rabt bahami hai bahut
mera mughanni hai wo aur us ka shair main

ye khel KHatm bana haar-jit ke hoga
ki jis hunar mein wo yakta usi mein mahir main

hazar bandha gaya mujh pe aainon ka hisar
kisi pe apne alawa hua na zahir main
