mujhe puchha hai aa kar tumne us aKHlaq-e-kaamil se


mujhe pūchhā hai aa kar tum ne us aḳhlāq-e-kāmil se
ki maiñ sharminda ho kar rah gayā andāza-e-dil se

nazar ke ruḳh ko yā to dil kī jānib pher lene do
nahīñ to sāmne aa jaao uTh kar parda-e-dil se

umīdeñ uTh rahī haiñ saikḌoñ ummīdvāroñ kī
maiñ tanhā huuñ magar tanhā nahīñ uTThūñgā mahfil se

amīr-e-kārvāñ jis raushnī ke bal pe baḌhtā hai
nikaltā hai vo taarā sub.h hote ḳhāk-e-manzil se

unheñ duniyā ab ashk-e-ġham kahe yā ḳhuun kī būñdeñ
mohabbat ne charāġh āñkhoñ meñ lā kar rakh diye dil se

ab us nañg-e-mohabbat se kināra bhī to mushkil hai
mujhe jis kī mohabbat kā yaqīñ aayā thā mushkil se

abhī to shaam hai āġhāz hai parvāna-sozī kā
koī is sham.a ko āgāh kar do sub.h-e-mahfil se

abhī tahqīq behtar hai ki phir shikva abas hogā
ki mīr-e-kārvāñ vāqif nahīñ ādāb-e-manzil se

miTāne se kabhī naqsh-e-mohabbat miT nahīñ saktā
mirā afsāna niklegā tirī rūdād-e-mahfil se

ġhanīmat hai nazar raushan hai dil ab tak dhaḌaktā hai
mohabbat meñ to ye āsāniyāñ miltī haiñ mushkil se

ufuq ke aa.ine meñ ho na ho dhāre ke saa.e meñ
nazar aatī haiñ tūfānoñ kī sarhad jaise sāhil se

tirā jalva to kyā tū ḳhud bhī tafrīh-e-nazar hotā
mirī āñkhoñ ne ab tak bhiik māñgī hī nahīñ dil se

sitam kī āḳhirī manzil pe iz.hār-e-pashemānī
nikal aate haiñ aañsū yuuñ to har dukhte hue dil se

maiñ ik zarra huuñ lekin vus.at-e-sahrā se vāqif huuñ
uThā saktā nahīñ ḳhud mīr-e-mahfil mujh ko mahfil se

tahayya kar liyā tañg aa ke go tark-e-ta.alluq kā
magar ab fikr hai ye ḳhat unheñ likkheñge kis dil se

mujhe 'ehsān' mere qāfile vāloñ ne ab samjhā
ki ye zarra sitārā ban gayā taqdīr-e-manzil se

mujhe puchha hai aa kar tum ne us aKHlaq-e-kaamil se
ki main sharminda ho kar rah gaya andaza-e-dil se

nazar ke ruKH ko ya to dil ki jaanib pher lene do
nahin to samne aa jao uTh kar parda-e-dil se

umiden uTh rahi hain saikDon ummidwaron ki
main tanha hun magar tanha nahin uTThunga mahfil se

amir-e-karwan jis raushni ke bal pe baDhta hai
nikalta hai wo tara subh hote KHak-e-manzil se

unhen duniya ab ashk-e-gham kahe ya KHun ki bunden
mohabbat ne charagh aankhon mein la kar rakh diye dil se

ab us nang-e-mohabbat se kinara bhi to mushkil hai
mujhe jis ki mohabbat ka yaqin aaya tha mushkil se

abhi to sham hai aaghaz hai parwana-sozi ka
koi is shama ko aagah kar do subh-e-mahfil se

abhi tahqiq behtar hai ki phir shikwa abas hoga
ki mir-e-karwan waqif nahin aadab-e-manzil se

miTane se kabhi naqsh-e-mohabbat miT nahin sakta
mera afsana niklega teri rudad-e-mahfil se

ghanimat hai nazar raushan hai dil ab tak dhaDakta hai
mohabbat mein to ye aasaniyan milti hain mushkil se

ufuq ke aaine mein ho na ho dhaare ke sae mein
nazar aati hain tufanon ki sarhad jaise sahil se

tera jalwa to kya tu KHud bhi tafrih-e-nazar hota
meri aankhon ne ab tak bhik mangi hi nahin dil se

sitam ki aaKHiri manzil pe izhaar-e-pashemani
nikal aate hain aansu yun to har dukhte hue dil se

main ek zarra hun lekin wusat-e-sahra se waqif hun
uTha sakta nahin KHud mir-e-mahfil mujh ko mahfil se

tahayya kar liya tang aa ke go tark-e-talluq ka
magar ab fikr hai ye KHat unhen likkhenge kis dil se

mujhe 'ehsan' mere qafile walon ne ab samjha
ki ye zarra sitara ban gaya taqdir-e-manzil se
