Janay kia waqia hy honay ko
Jee bohat chahta hay ronay ko
Kitnay aish uratay hon gy, kitny itraty hon gy
Janay kesy wo log hon gy jo uski bhatay hon gy
Uski yad ki bad-e saba main or to kia hota hoga
Yunhi mery baal hyn bikhray or bikhar jatay hon gy
Wo jo na anay wala hay na us sy hum ko matlab tha
Anay walon sy kia mtalab atay hyn to atay hon gy
Yaron! kuch to hal sunao uski qayamat bahon ka
Wo jo simatty hongy un main, wo to mur jatay hon gy

Band kar kay wo meri ankhyn shararat sy hansy
Boojhay janay ka main har roz tamasha daykhoon
Mujh py chaa jaye wo barasat ki khushboo ki trha
Ung ung apna usi rut main mehkta daykhoonA very famous poem " Us ny kaha tha ish dhong hy" by Parveen Shakir is a masterpiece in the urdu love poetry.
Us nay kaha tha ishq dhong hay
Main ny kaha tujhy ishq ho Khuda kary
Koi tujh ko us sy juda kary
Tery hont hansna bhool jaen
Teri ankhyn pur num raha kryn
Too usi ki batyn kia kary
Too usi ki batyn suna kary
Tujhy hijr ki wo jhari lagy
Too milan ki har pal dua kary
Too gali gali mn phira kary
Too nagar nagar mn sada kary
Tujhy ishq ka phir yaqeen ho
Usy tasbeehon main prha kary
Main khun k ishq dhong hy
Too nahi nahi ki sada kary
Janay kab tak teri tasveer nigahon main rahi
Hogae rat tery aks ko takty takty
Main ny phir tery tasawur k kisi lamhay main
Teri tasveer pay lab rakh diye ahista say
Dil dharakny ka sabab yad aya
Wo teri yad thee ab yad aya
Haan main ny tujhy chaha inkar nahi mujh ko
Ye jurm to sabit hy kia iski sfai doon
A romantic ghazal by Nasir kazmi.
Mat rootha karo muh sy
Unparh sa hoon tery siwa kuch nahi ataMain kesy sard hathon sy tumharay gaal choota tha
December mn tmhn meri shararat yad aye ge
Wo jisy neend kaha krty hn sab chayn ki neend
Wo tery bad kabhi ankhon mn utri hi nahiChand nikla hy aao aaj ki rat
Itni batyn karyn k thak jaen
Wo bichra to phir kabhi subha na hoe
Rat hi hoti gae phir har rat kay bad
Teri surat sy hay aalam main baharon ko sabat
Teri ankhon kay siwa dunia mn rkha kia hay
Tumhari yad kay jab zakhm bharny lgty hain
Kisi bahany tumhain yad karny lgty hain
Wo aa rahy hyn wo atay hn aa rahy hon gy
Shab-e firaq ye keh kar guzar di hum ny
Uth kar to aa gye hain teri bazm sy magar
Kuch dil hi janta hay kay kis dil say aye hn
Nazar mery dil ki pari dard kis per
Jidhar dakhta hoon wohi roobaroo hay
Kaash us k roobaroo na kryn mujh ko hashr main
Kitny mery swal hain jin ka nahi jawab
Khul nahi skti hyn ab ankhyn meri
Jee main ye kis ka tasawur aa gya
Janazay pay mery likh dayna yaro
Muhabat karny wala ja raha hy
Main akhir konsa mausam tumharay nam kr dayta
Yahan har aik mausam ko guzar janay ki jaldi thee
Beemar ko marz ki dwa dani chahye
Main peena chahta hoon pila dani chahye
