Akhiri Tis Azamane Ko
Ji To Chaha Tha Muskurane Ko

Yad Itni Bhi Sakht Jan To Nahin
Ik Gharaunda Raha Hai Dahane Ko

Sangrezon Main Dhal Gaye Ansu
Log Hansate Rahe Dikhane Ko

Zakhm-E-Nagma Bhi Lau To Deta Hai
Ik Diya Rah Gaya Jalane Ko

Jalane Vale To Jal Bujhe Akhir
Kaun Deta Khabar Zamane Ko

Kitne Majbur Ho Gaye Honge
Ankahi Bat Munh Pe Lane Ko

Khul Ke Hansana To Sab Ko Ata Hai
Log Tarasate Rahe Ik Bahane Ko

Reza Reza Bikhar Gaya Insan
Dil Ki Viraniyan Jatane Ko

Hasraton Ki Panahgahon Main
Kya Thikane Hain Sar Chhupane Ko

Hath Kanton Se Kar Liye Zakhmi
Phul Balon Main Ik Sajane Ko

As Ki Bat Ho Ki Sans ?Ada?
Ye Khilaune Hain Tut Jane Ko

Taskin ko ham na roen jo zauq-e-nazr mile
Huraan-e-khuld mein teri surat magar mile.

Apni gali mein mujhko na kar dafan baad-e-qatal
Mere pate se khalaq ko kyon tera ghar mile.

Saqi gari ki sharm karo aaj warna ham
Har shab piya hi karte hain, mai jis qadar mile

Tujh se to kuchh kalaam nahin lekin ai nadim.
Mera salaam kaheyo agar naama bar mile.

Tum ko bhi ham dikhaenge Majnun ne kya kiya
Fursat kashaakash-e-gham-e-pinhaan se gar mile.

Laazim nahin ke khizar ki ham pairwi karen
Maana ke ek bazurg hamen ham safar mile.

Ai saaknaan-e-kucha-e-dildaar dekhna
Tum ko kahin jo Ghalib-e-aashufta sar mile

shauq har rang raqeeb-e-sar-o-saamaaN niklaa
qais tasveer ke parde meiN bhee uriyaaN niklaa.

zaKhm ne daad na dee, tangee-e-dil ki yaarab !
teer bhee seena-e-bismil se par_afshaaN niklaa.

boo-e-gul, naala-e-dil, dood-e-charaaGH-e-mehfil
jo teree bazm se nikla, so parishaaN niklaa

thee nau_aamoz_fana'a himmat-e-dushwaar_pasand
saKHt mushkil hai ki yah kaam bhee aasaaN nikla

dil meiN fir giryaaN ne ik shor uThaaya 'GHalib
' aah jo qatra na nikla tha, so toofaaN nikla.
