Bahadur Shah Zafar

baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi

baat karni mujhe mushkil kabhi aisi to na thi
jaisi ab hai teri mahfil kabhi aisi to na thi

le gaya chhin ke kaun aaj tera sabr o qarar
be-qarari tujhe ai dil kabhi aisi to na thi

uski aankhon ne KHuda jaane kiya kya jadu
ki tabiat meri mail kabhi aisi to na thi

aks-e-ruKHsar ne kis ke hai tujhe chamkaya
tab tujh men mah-e-kaamil kabhi aisi to na thi

ab ki jo rah-e-mohabbat men uThai taklif
saKHt hoti hamen manzil kabhi aisi to na thi

pa-e-kuban koi zindan men naya hai majnun
aati aawaz-e-salasil kabhi aisi to na thi

yaa mujhe afsar-e-shaahaa na bnayaa hota

yaa mujhe afsar-e-shaahaa na bnayaa hota
yaa meraa taaj gadaayaa na bnaayaa hota

Khaak_saarii ke liye garche bnayaa thaa mujhe
kaash Khaak-e-dar-e-jaanaa.N na bnayaa hota

nashaa-e-ishq kaa gar zarf diyaa thaa mujh ko
umr kaa tang na paimaanaa banaayaa hotaa

apnaa divanaa bnayaa mujhe hotaa tuune
kyo.n Khirad_mand banaayaa na banaayaa hotaa

sholaa-e-husn chaman me.n na dikhayaa us ne
varanaa bul_bul ko bhii paravaanaa banaayaa hotaa

Umr-E-Daraaz Mang Kar Laye The Chaar Din

Lagta Nahin Hai Dil Mera Ujde Dayaar Mein
Kiski Bani Hai Aalam-E-Napaydaar Mein

Keh Do In Hasraton Se Kahin Aur Ja Basein
Itni Jageh Kahan Hai Dil-E-Daagdar Mein

Umr-E-Daraaz Mang Kar Laye The Chaar Din
Do Aarzoo Mein Kat Gaye Do Intezaar Mein

Kitna Hai Badnaseeb Zafar! Dafan Ke Liye
Do Gaz Zameen Bhi Na Mili Kooye-E-Yaar Mein
