Shikwa-e-Awami

payaam aaye hain un sathi-e-aasi ke liay
kia ilzaam lagaain bakht ki khami ke liay

kesa yar-e-wafaa chuna tha ghulami k liay
ik lamha bhi na socha, shehr-e-awami k liay

zindagi k mailay may, na tha koi madd-e-muqabil,
kyon pasti ko chuna, maqaam-e-sarfrazi ke liay

apno ki mohabbat kia shaiy hai, wuqt na jani tum ne,
jin ko dhoka dia tha, aaj rotay hain tumharay liay

ab basar karni hay yeh kaali raat akelay hi tum ne,
tulu-e-aftab ki umeed bhi na bachi ab nijaat k liay

sabaq kia seekha iss qissa-e-budnami may, yawar?
kabhi apnon ko na dagha dena, ristha-e-aarzi k liay.
