    Hum par tumari chah ka ilzam hy tu hy
    Dushnam tu nahi hy ya ikram hy tu hy

    karthi hain jis py taan koi juram tu nahi
    Shoq-e-fazol o ulfat-e-nakam hy tu hy

    Dil mudai ki harf-e- malamat sy shad hy
    ay jan-e-jaa ya harf tira naam hy tu hy

    Dil na umeed tu nahi nakam hy tu hy
    Lambi hy gham ki sham magar sham hy tu hy

    Dast-e-falak may gardish-e-taqdir tu nahi
    Dast-e-falak may gardish-e-ayaam hy tu hy

    Alhir tu iak roz kari gy nazar-e-wafa
    Wu yar khush khisal sar-e-bam hy tu hy

    Baigee hy raat faiz ghazal eibtyda karo
    Waqt-e-saro dard ka ghangam hy tu hy

    The man could write couldn't he? He writes without effort, there is no filter between his heart and his readers. We are blessed by his pen (Report)Reply
