  • Ghazal


uski yaad aur dard ki saughat mere sath thi


us kī yaad aur dard kī sauġhāt mere saath thī
us se baḌh kar ek tanhā raat mere saath thī

mujh ko tanhā.ī meñ bhī ehsās-e-tanhā.ī na thā
har galī meñ gardish-e-hālāt mere saath thī

rafta rafta band kaliyoñ ke bhī lab khulne lage
āb-e-sabr o hiddat-e-isbāt mere saath thī

band khiḌkī par bhī 'ḳhālid' ek din pahre lage
aisī bhī kuchh sūrat-e-hālāt mere saath thī

us ki yaad aur dard ki saughat mere sath thi
us se baDh kar ek tanha raat mere sath thi

mujh ko tanhai mein bhi ehsas-e-tanhai na tha
har gali mein gardish-e-haalat mere sath thi

rafta rafta band kaliyon ke bhi lab khulne lage
aab-e-sabr o hiddat-e-isbaat mere sath thi

band khiDki par bhi 'KHalid' ek din pahre lage
aisi bhi kuchh surat-e-haalat mere sath thi
