donon jahan teri mohabbat men haar ke
wo ja raha hai koi shab-e-gham guzar ke

viran hai mai-kada KHum o saghar udas hain
tum kya gae ki ruTh gae din bahaar ke

ek fursat-e-gunah mili wo bhi chaar din
dekhe hain humne hausle parwardigar ke

duniya ne teri yaad se begana kar diya
tujhse bhi dil-fareb hain gham rozgar ke

bhule se muskura to diye the wo aaj faiz
mat puchh walwale dil-e-na-karda-kar ke

gulo me rag bhare baad-e-nau-bahaar chale
chale bhi aao ke gulshan ka kaar-o-baar chale

qafas udas hai yaro saba se kuchh to kaho
kahi to bahar-e-khuda aaj zikr-e-yaar chale

kabhi to subh tere kunj-e-lab se ho aagaz
kabhi to shab sar-e-kaakul se mushkabar chale

bada hai dard ka rishta ye dil garib sahi
tumhare naam pe ayege gam-gusaar chale

jo ham pe guzari so guzari magar shab-e-hijraan
hamare ashk teri aakabat sanwar chale

huzur-e-yaar hui daftar-e-junun ki talab
girah me le ke gireban ka tar tar chale

makaam 'faiz' koi raah me jancha hi nahi
jo ku-e-yaar se nikale to su-e-daar chale

Mujh se pahli si mohabbat, mere mahaboob, na maang
maine samajha tha ke tu hai to daraKshaaN hai hayaat
tera gham hai to gham-e-dahar ka jhagaDa kya hai
teri surat se hai aalam meiN bahaaroN ko sabaat
teri aankhoN ke siwa duniya mein rakhaa kyaa hai

tu jo mil jaaye to taqadir nigon ho jaaye
youn na tha, main ne faqat chaahaa thaa youN ho jaae
aur bhi dukh hain zamaane meiN mohabbat ke siwa
raahaten aur bhi hain vasl ki raahat ke sivaa
mujh se pehali si mohabbat, mere mahabuub, na maaNg

anginat sadiyoN ke taarik bahimaanaa talism
resham-o-atalas-o-kimkhaab se saje jism
khaak meiN lithaDe hue khooN meiN nahalaaye huye
jism nikale hue amaraaz ke tanavvuroN se
pip bahati hui galate hue naasu=uroN se
laut jaati hai idhar ko bhi nazar kyaa kije
ab bhi dilakash hai teraa husn, magar kya kije

aur bhi gham hain zamaane meiN mohabbat ke siwa
raahateiN aur bhi haiN vasl ki raahat ke sivaa
mujh se pahali si mohabbat, mere mahabuub, na maaNg

sach hain hamin ko ap k shikwe baja na the
beshak sitam janab k sab dostana the

han jo jafa bhi ap ne ki qayede se ki
han ham hi kaarband-e-usul-e-wafa na the

aye to yun to k jaise hamesha k meharban
bhule to yun k goya kabhi ashna na the

kyon dad-e-gam ham ne talab ki, bura kiya
ham se jahan main kushta-e-gam aur kya na the

gar fikr-e-zakhm ki to khatawar hain k ham
kyon mahw-e-madh-e-khubi-e-teg-e-ada na the

har charagar ko charagari se gurez tha
warna hamain jo dukh the bahut ladawa na the

lab par hai talkhi-e-may-e-ayyam warna "Faiz"
ham talkhi-e-kalam par mail zara na the
