charagh usne bujha bhi diya jala bhi diya


charāġh us ne bujhā bhī diyā jalā bhī diyā
ye merī qabr pe manzar nayā dikhā bhī diyā

ye chheḌ kyā hai ye kyā mujh se dil-lagī hai koī
jagāyā niiñd se jaagā to phir sulā bhī diyā

udhar thā lutf-o-karam un kā is taraf thā itaab
charāġh umiid kā raushan kiyā bujhā bhī diyā

ye shoḳhiyāñ na.ī dekhīñ tumhārī chitvan meñ
ki parda ruḳh pe liyā aur phir uThā bhī diyā

udhar lagāv idhar barhamī ke haiñ āsār
mujhe phañsā bhī liyā aur phir chhuḌā bhī diyā

nikal ga.e mirī āñkhoñ se saikaḌoñ aañsū
ḳhazāna jam.a kiyā aur phir luTā bhī diyā

nayā hai husn ke bāzār kā utār-chaḌhāv
chaḌhāyā sar pe nigāhoñ se phir girā bhī diyā

zarā to pās-e-talab āshiqoñ kā tum karte
bulāyā paas bhī phir paas se haTā bhī diyā

ye un kā khel to dekho ki ek kāġhaz par
likhā bhī naam mirā aur phir miTā bhī diyā

agarche rāh-e-mohabbat hai tañg-o-tār magar
isī ke saath hameñ aql kā diyā bhī diyā

bashīr siiñg kaTā kar mile haiñ bachhḌoñ meñ
bane javān buḌhāpe kā ġham bhulā bhī diyā

charagh us ne bujha bhi diya jala bhi diya
ye meri qabr pe manzar naya dikha bhi diya

ye chheD kya hai ye kya mujh se dil-lagi hai koi
jagaya nind se jaga to phir sula bhi diya

udhar tha lutf-o-karam un ka is taraf tha itab
charagh umid ka raushan kiya bujha bhi diya

ye shoKHiyan nai dekhin tumhaari chitwan mein
ki parda ruKH pe liya aur phir uTha bhi diya

udhar lagaw idhar barhami ke hain aasar
mujhe phansa bhi liya aur phir chhuDa bhi diya

nikal gae meri aankhon se saikaDon aansu
KHazana jama kiya aur phir luTa bhi diya

naya hai husn ke bazar ka utar-chaDhaw
chaDhaya sar pe nigahon se phir gira bhi diya

zara to pas-e-talab aashiqon ka tum karte
bulaya pas bhi phir pas se haTa bhi diya

ye un ka khel to dekho ki ek kaghaz par
likha bhi nam mera aur phir miTa bhi diya

agarche rah-e-mohabbat hai tang-o-tar magar
isi ke sath hamein aql ka diya bhi diya

bashir sing kaTa kar mile hain bachhDon mein
bane jawan buDhape ka gham bhula bhi diya
