aina kyu na dun k tamasha kahe jise

aina kyu na dun k tamasha kahe jise
aisa kahan se laun k tujhsa kahe jise

hasrat ne la rakha teri bazm-e-khayal mein
guldasta-e-nigah suweda kahe jise

phunka hai kisne goshe muhabbat mein ai Khuda
afsun-e-intazar tamanna kahe jise

sar par hujum-e-dard-e-garibi se daliye
wo ek musht-e-khak k sahra kahe jise

hai chashm-e-tar mein hasrat-e-didar se nihan
shauq-e-inan gusekhta dariya kahe jise

darkar hai shiguftan-e-gul haye aish ko
subh-e-bahar panba-e-mina kahe jise

Barish hui to phulon ke tan chak ho gaye

Barish hui to phulon ke tan chak ho gaye
mausam ke hath bhig ke saffak ho gaye

baadal ko kya khabar ke barish ki chah main
kitne buland-o-bala shajar khaak ho gaye

jugnu ko din ke waqt pakarne ki zid karen
bache hamare ahad ke chalak ho gaye

lahra rahi hai barf ki chadar hata ke ghas
suraj ki shah pe tinak bhi bebak ho gaye

suraj dimag log bhi iblag-e-fikr main
zulf-e-shab-e-firaq ke pechak ho gaye

jab bhi garib-e-shahar se kuch guftagu hui
lahaje hawa-e-sham ke namnak ho gaye

is se pahle ke bewafaa ho jaayen

is se pahle ke bewafaa ho jaayen
kyon na aiy dost ham judaa ho jaayen

tuu bhi hire se ban gayaa patthar
ham bhi kal kyaa se kyaa ho jaayen

ham bhi majburiyon kaa uzr karen
aur kahin aur mubtalaa ho jaayen

ishq bhi khel hai nasibon kaa
Khaak ho jaayen kimiyaa ho jaayen

ab ke gar tu mile to ham tujh se
aise lipaTen teri qabaa ho jaayen

bandagi ham ne chhoD di hai 'Faraz'
kyaa karen log jab Khudaa ho jaayen
