Kya woh aese hi hain jesa

Hum gali se teri chup chaap guzar atey hain,
Apni dharrkan teri dehleez pe dhar atey hain

Aik to hai ke teri chaap* to tarsey mera dil
Warna panchhi bhi shaam ko ghar atey hain

Jab se saahil pe kiya tu ne kinaara mujhse
Joq-dr-joq* meri simt bhanwar atey hain

Aap kehte hain karri dhoop main jalna kesa
Ja’bjaa* raah main kitne hi shajar atey hain

Jab se socha hai mene tujhe shab-e-furqat mein
Kiss qadar chand sitarey mere ghar atey hain

Zindagi jab bhi shab-e-hijar ke sanchey* mein dhali
Us ki jaanib se bhi peighaam-e-seher atey hain

Un se milte huye aksar mein Ghazal sochti hoon
Kya woh aese hi hain jesa ke nazar atey hain
