ghairat-e-ishq salamat thi ana zinda thi

ghairat-e-ishq salamat thi ana zinda thi
wo bhi din the ki rah-o-rasm-e-wafa zinda thi

qais ko dosh na do rakhiyo na farhad ko nam
inhi logon se mohabbat ki ada zinda thi

shahr-e-bimar ke har kucha o baam o dar par
hum bhi marte the ki jab KHalq-e-KHuda zinda thi

bujh gain shamen to dam toD gae jhonke bhi
jis tarah zahr-e-raqabat se hawa zinda thi

yaad-e-ayyam ki sahra-e-mohabbat mein ‘faraaz’
jaras-e-qafila-e-dil ki sada zinda thi
