aaina saaz dikhaa aise hunar ki soorat

aaina saaz dikhaa aise hunar ki soorat
nazar aa jaaye jo andar ke bashar ki soorat

dil ki veeraani-o-Hasrat ka voh aalam hai ke ab
shehr ka shehr hi lagta hai khaNDar ki soorat

jab nikalta hooN safar per to tumhaari yaadeN
saath rehti haiN mire rakht-e-safar ki soorat

vaada-e-vasl faqat chodhveeN shab ka karna
din badalne se badalti hai qamar ki soorat

mere she’roN meiN taraavat hai usi ke dam se
mere meHboob ki soorat, gul-e-tar ki soorat

TooT jaati hai koi Daali khizaaN meiN jis vaqt
ham se dekhi nahiN jaati hai shajar ki soorat

aik hi shams nikalta hai jahaaN meiN lekin
ajnabi lagti hai ghurbat meiN saHar ki soorat

kabhi manzil ke ta’iyyun meiN na jaldi karna
tum ne dekhi nahiN dushvaar Dagar ki soorat

baad-e-sarsar jo kabhi mausam-e-hijraaN meiN chale
daagh seene ke bhaRakte haiN sharar ki soorat

naaseHa chaar qadam tu bhi agar saath chale
ham tujhe raah dikhaaiN ge khizar ki soorat

ik Hikaayat thi puraani mire dil ki Amjad
aaj logoN se suni taaza khabar ki soorat
