ata hai yad mujhko guzra hua zmana - Parinde ki faryad

ata hai yad mujhko guzra hua zmana
wo bagh ki baharen wo sab ka chahchahana

azadyan kahan wo ab apne ghonsle kia
apni khushi se ana apni khushi se jana

lagti hai chot dil per ata hai yad jis dam
shabnam ke ansuon per kalyon ka muskurana

wo pyari pyari surat wo kamni si murat
abad jis ke dam se tha mera ashyana

ati nahi sadayen us ki mere qafs me
hoti meri rehayee aey kaash mere bus me

kia badnasib hun main ghar ko taras raha hun
sathi to hain watan me main qaid me pada hun

Nazar Main Zakhm-e-Tabbasum Chupa Chupa k mila

Nazar Main Zakhm-e-Tabbasum Chupa Chupa k mila
Khafa To Tha Wo Magar Mujhse Muskura k Mila

Wo Humsafar K Mere Tanz Pe Hansta Tha Bohat
Sitam Zareef Muje Aaina Dikha Ke Mila

Mere Mizaj pe Hairan Hai Zindagi Ka Shaoor
Main Apni Moat Ko Aksar Gale Laga K Mila

Main Us Se Mangta Kia Khoon Baha Jawani Ka
K Wo Bhi Aaj Muje Apna Ghar Luta k mila

Main jisko Dhoond Raha Tha Nazar Ke Raste Main
Mujhe Mila Bhi Tou Zalim Nazar Jhuka K Mila

Main Zakham-e-Zakham Badan Le K Chal Dia
Wo Jab Bhi Apni qabar Per Kanwal Saja K mila

vafaa ke Khvaab muhabbat kaa aasara le jaa

vafaa ke Khvaab muhabbat kaa aasara le jaa
agar chalaa hai to jo kuchh mujhe diyaa le jaa
maqaam-e-suud-o-ziyaaN aa gayaa hai phir jaanaaN
ye zaKhm mere sahii tiir to uThaa le jaa

yahii hai qismat-e-saharaa yahii karam teraa
ki buuNd buuNd ataa kar ghaTaa ghaTaa le jaa

Guruur-e-dost se itanaa bhii dil_shikastaa na ho
phir uTh ke saamane daaman-e-iltajaa le jaa

nadaamaten hon to sar baar-e-dosh hotaa hai
'Faraz' jaaN ke evaz aabaruu bachaa le jaa

Ahmad Faraz
