dil se teree nigaah jigar tak utar gayee 
donoN ko ik adaa meiN razaamand kar gayee. 

shaq ho gaya hai seena, KHushee lazzat-e-firaaq
takleef-e-pardaadaari-e-zaKHm-e-jigar gayee 

woh baada-e-shabaana kee sar mastiyaaN kahaaN ? 
uThiye bas ab ki lazzat-e-KHwaab-e-sahar gayee 

uDtee fire hai KHaak meree koo-e-yaar se 
baare ab 'ei hawa, hawas-e- baal-o-par gayee 

dekhooN to dil_farebi-e-andaaz-e-naqsh-e-pa 
mauj-e-KHiraam-e-yaar bhee kya gul katar gayee

har bulhawas ne husn_parastee shiaar kee 
ab aabru-e-sheva-e-'ehl-e-nazar gayee 

nazzaare ne bhee kaam kiya waaN naqaab ka 
mastee se har nigaah tere ruKH par bikhar gayee 

farda-o-dee ka tafarqa yak baar mit gaya 
kal tum gaye ke ham pe qayaamat guzar gayee 

maara zamaane ne 'Asadullah KHaaN' tumhe 
woh walwale kahaaN, woh jawaanee kidhar gayee ?

diyaa hai dil agar usko, bashar hai kya kahiye ?

yeh zid, ki aaj na aave aur aaye bin na rahe
qaza se shikwa hamaiN kis qadar hai kya kahiye ?

rahe haiN yoN gah-o-be_gah ki koo-e-dost ko ab
agar na kahiye ki dushman ka ghar hai, kya kahiye ?

zah-e-karishma ki yoN de rakhaa hai hamko fareb
ki bin kahe hee unhaiN sab KHabar hai, kya kahiye?
samajh ke karte haiN baazaar meiN woh pursish-e-haal
ki yeh kahe ki sar-e-rehguzar hai, kya kahiye ?

tumhaiN naheeN hai sar-e-rishtaa-e-wafa ka KHayaal
hamaare haath meiN kuchch hai, magar hai kya, kahiye ?
unhaiN sawaal pe zoam-e-junooN hai, kyoN laDiye ?
hame jawaab se qata'a-e-nazar hai, kya kahiye ?

hasad sazaa-e-kamaal-e-suKHan hai, kya keeje

kaha hai kisne ki 'GHalib' buraa naheeN lekin

fir tere kooche ko jaata hai KHayaal
