zindagi ka kis liye matam rahe


zindagī kā kis liye mātam rahe
mulk bastā hai miTe yā ham rahe

dil rahe piirī meñ bhī terā javāñ
āḳhirī dam tak yahī dam-ḳham rahe

chāhiye insān kā dil ho ġhanī
paas maal o zar bahut yā kam rahe

kyā isī jannat kī ye tahrīs hai
jis meñ kuchh din hazrat-e-ādam rahe

vasl se matlab na rakh tū ishq kā
dam bhare jā dam meñ jab tak dam rahe

laag ik din ban ke rahtī hai lagāv
haañ lagāvaT kuchh na kuchh bāham rahe

ishq ne jis dil pe qabza kar liyā
phir kahāñ us meñ nashāt o ġham rahe

sharq se jab nuur chamkā to kahāñ
barg-e-gul par qatra-e-shabnam rahe

husn kī duniyā kā hai daa.em shabāb
hashr tak us kā yahī aalam rahe

hai surūr-e-husn 'kaifī' lā-yazāl
dar-ḳhur-e-zarf us meñ besh o kam rahe

zindagi ka kis liye matam rahe
mulk basta hai miTe ya hum rahe

dil rahe piri mein bhi tera jawan
aaKHiri dam tak yahi dam-KHam rahe

chahiye insan ka dil ho ghani
pas mal o zar bahut ya kam rahe

kya isi jannat ki ye tahris hai
jis mein kuchh din hazrat-e-adam rahe

wasl se matlab na rakh tu ishq ka
dam bhare ja dam mein jab tak dam rahe

lag ek din ban ke rahti hai lagaw
han lagawaT kuchh na kuchh baham rahe

ishq ne jis dil pe qabza kar liya
phir kahan us mein nashat o gham rahe

sharq se jab nur chamka to kahan
barg-e-gul par qatra-e-shabnam rahe

husn ki duniya ka hai daem shabab
hashr tak us ka yahi aalam rahe

hai surur-e-husn 'kaifi' la-yazal
dar-KHur-e-zarf us mein besh o kam rahe
