Meer Taqi Meer

Pattaa Pattaa booTa booTa haal hamara jaane hai

pattaa-pattaa booTa booTa haal hamara jaane hai
jaane na jaane gul hi na jaane, baaGh to saara jaane hai

lagne na de bas ho to us ke gauhar-e-gosh ke baale tak
us ko falak chashm-e-mai-o-Khor ki titli kaa taara jaane hai

aage us mutaqabbar ke ham Khuda Khuda kiyaa karte hain
kab maujuud Khudaa ko vo maGhroor Khud-aara jaane hai

aashiq saa to saadaa koi aur na hoga duniyaa men
jii ke ziaan ko ishq men us ke apanaa vaaraa jaane hai

Zulmat-e-shab ko sitaaron se sanwaara hum ne,

Zulmat-e-shab ko sitaaron se sanwaara hum ne,
Kitni raton ko tujhe uth ke pukara hum ne,

Jab kabhi hath se umeed ka daaman choota,
Le liya aap ke daaman ka sahara hum ne,

Yoon to dunya bhi mukhaalif hai hamari warna,
Rukh badaltey huye dekha hai tumhara hum ne,

Hum zamaney se bhi takraa gaye teri khaatir,
Jo na karna tha kiya woh bhi ganwaara hum ne,

Ae Taqi, Gham nahin yeh jaan rahe ya na rahe,
Paa liya un nighaaon ka ishaara hum ne..
