kanTon mein hi kuchh zarf-e-samaat nazar aae


kāñToñ meñ hī kuchh zarf-e-samā.at nazar aa.e
gulshan meñ kahīñ to merī rūdād sunī jaa.e

is kārgah-e-shīsha meñ ā.īna huuñ maiñ bhī
chehra nahīñ koī to koī sañg hī aa.e

gul-gasht kā ab zauq na kuchh qadr-e-bahārāñ
ik umr se huuñ zaḳhmoñ kā gulzār sajā.e

manzil kā hai imkāñ na koī ḳhatm-e-safar kā
is ābla-pā.ī ko koī naam diyā jaa.e

is vādī-e-kohsār meñ patthar hī nahīñ haiñ
hai aur bahut kuchh bhī kisī ko to nazar aa.e

haañ tez bahut tez hai ab vaqt kī raftār
is dil kā karūñ kyā ki jo chal paa.e na ruk paa.e

tāñbe sī zamīñ aur sivā neze pe sūraj
taqdīr ne yuuñ hashr ke āsār dikhā.e

ik gard-e-masāfat thī jo chehre se na utrī
vaise to yahāñ ham ne ka.ī shahr basā.e

'imdād'-nizāmī na suḳhnavar the na shā.er
kuchh zaḳhm amānat the kisī kī vahī le aa.e

kanTon mein hi kuchh zarf-e-samaat nazar aae
gulshan mein kahin to meri rudad suni jae

is kargah-e-shisha mein aaina hun main bhi
chehra nahin koi to koi sang hi aae

gul-gasht ka ab zauq na kuchh qadr-e-bahaaran
ek umr se hun zaKHmon ka gulzar sajae

manzil ka hai imkan na koi KHatm-e-safar ka
is aabla-pai ko koi nam diya jae

is wadi-e-kohsar mein patthar hi nahin hain
hai aur bahut kuchh bhi kisi ko to nazar aae

han tez bahut tez hai ab waqt ki raftar
is dil ka karun kya ki jo chal pae na ruk pae

tanbe si zamin aur siwa neze pe suraj
taqdir ne yun hashr ke aasar dikhae

ek gard-e-masafat thi jo chehre se na utri
waise to yahan hum ne kai shahr basae

'imdad'-nizami na suKHnawar the na shaer
kuchh zaKHm amanat the kisi ki wahi le aae
