KHak mein lipTi kahani aur hai


ḳhaak meñ lipTī kahānī aur hai
rañg lekin āsmānī aur hai

kal talak vo bāñTtī ḳhushbū rahī
ab havā kī chheḌ-ḳhāni aur hai

dhuup ke sahrā meñ chal kar dekhnā
ābloñ kī shādmānī aur hai

chīñtiyoñ se phir mirā va.ada huā
ek koshish āzmānī aur hai

raat ke ghar meñ baḌā kohrām thā
sub.h kī ab be-zabānī aur hai

titliyoñ ko thī sabā kī justujū
gulistāñ meñ hukmarānī aur hai

koñpleñ izn-e-safar kī muntazir
zard pattoñ meñ kahānī aur hai

mehrbāñ phūloñ pe lagtī thī havā
bahte paanī kī ravānī aur hai

haañ nadāmat tujh ko honī chāhiye
haif 'ja.afar' paanī paanī aur hai

KHak mein lipTi kahani aur hai
rang lekin aasmani aur hai

kal talak wo banTti KHushbu rahi
ab hawa ki chheD-KHani aur hai

dhup ke sahra mein chal kar dekhna
aablon ki shadmani aur hai

chintiyon se phir mera wada hua
ek koshish aazmani aur hai

raat ke ghar mein baDa kohram tha
subh ki ab be-zabani aur hai

titliyon ko thi saba ki justuju
gulistan mein hukmarani aur hai

konplen izn-e-safar ki muntazir
zard patton mein kahani aur hai

mehrban phulon pe lagti thi hawa
bahte pani ki rawani aur hai

han nadamat tujh ko honi chahiye
haif 'jafar' pani pani aur hai
