Meer Taqi Meer

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

chaaraagarii bimaari-e-dil ki rasm-e-shahar-e-husn nahin
varnaa dilabar-e-naadaan bhi is dard kaa chaaraa jaane hai

kyaa hi shikaar-farebi par maGaruur hai vo sayyad bachchaa
ta'er u.Date havaa men saare apani usaaraa jaane hai

mehar-o-vafaa-o-lutf-o-inaayat ek se vaaqif in men nahin
aur to sab kuchh tanz-o-kanaayaa ramz-o-ishaaraa jaane hai

kyaa kyaa fitane sar par usake laataa hai maashuuq apanaa
jis bedil betaab-o-tavaan ko ishq kaa maaraa jaane hai

aashiq to murdaa hai hameshaa ji uThataa hai dekhe use
yaar ke aa jaane ko yakaayak umr do baaraa jaane hai

raKhanon se diwaar-e-chaman ke muunh ko le hai chhipaa ya'ani
un suraaKhon ke Tuk rahane ko sau kaa nazaaraa jaane hai

tashnaa-e-Khuun hai apanaa kitanaa 'Mir' bhi naadaan talKhikash
dam_daar aab-e-teG ko us ke aab-e-gavaaraa jaane hai

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..
