kisi ki ankh jo purnam nahi hai
na samajho ye ke us ko Gam nahi hai

savad-e-dard main tanha khara hun
palat jaun magar mausam nahi hai

samajh main kuch nahi ata kisi k
agarche guftagu mubham nahi hai

sulagta kyun nahi tarik jangal
talab ki lau agar maddham nahi hai

ye basti hai sitam parvar digan ki
yaha koi kisi se kam nahi hai

kinara dusara dariya ka jaise
vo sathi hai magar mahram nahi hai

dilon ki raushani bujhne na dena
vajud-e-tiragi mahkam nahi hai

main tum ko chah kar pachta raha hun
koi is zaKhm ka marham nahi hai

jo koi sun sake ?Amjad? to suna dena
ba-juz ek baz gasht-e-Gam nahi hai

Labon Pe Phool Khiltay Hain Kisi Ke Naam Se Pahle
Diloan Ke Deep Jalte Hain Charagh-E Shaam Se Pahle

Kabhi Manzar Badalne Par Bhi Qissa Chal Nahin Pata
Kahani Khatam Hoti Hai Kabhi Anjaam Se Pahle

Yahi Taare Tumhaari Aankh Ki Chilman Mein Rehte The
Yahi Sooraj Nikalta Thaa Tumhare Baam Se Pahle

Hui Hai Shaam Jungle Main Parinde Laut-Te Honge
Ab In Ko Kis Tarah Rokain Nawaah-E-Daam Se Pahle

Ya Saare Rang Murdaa The Tumhaari Shakl Banne Tak
Ya Saare Harf Muhmal The Tumhaare Naam Se Pahle

Huaa Hai Wo Agar Munsif Tou Amjad IhtiyataN Ham
Sazaa Tasleem Karte Hain Kisi Ilzam Se Pahle

Bheerh Main Ik Ajanabii Kaa Samna Achcha Lagaa
Sab Se Chup Kar Vo Kisii Kaa Dekha Achcha Laga

Surmai Ankhon Ke Niiche Phool Se Khilane Lage
Kahate Kahate Kuchh Kisii Kaa Sochna Achcha Lagaa

Baat To Kuchh Bhii Nahin Thii Lekin Us Kaa Ek Dam
Haath Ko Honthon Pe Rakh Kar Rokna Achcha Lagaa

Chaay Main Chinii Milaana Us Gharii Bhaya Bahut
Zer-E Lab Vo Muskurata Shukriyaa Achcha Lagaa

Dil Main Kitane Ahad Bandhe The Bhulane Ke Use
Vo Milaa To Sab Iraade Torana Achcha Lagaa

Beirada Lams Kii Vo Sansanii Pyarii Lagii
Kam Tavajjo Aankh Kaa Vo Dekhna Achcha Lagaa

Niim Shab Kii Khamushi Main Bhiigatii Sarakon Pe Kal
Terii Yaadon Ke Jaalo Main Ghumna Achcha Lagaa

Us Uduu-E-Jaan Ko ‘Amjad’ Main Buraa Kaise Kahoon
Jab Bhii Aayaa Saamane Vo Bevafaa Achcha Lagaa

Hasti ka aitbaar kiye bagair reh na jaye,
Dunya hai yahan per jiye bin raha na jaye
Kat’ti nahin yeh zindagi umeed ke bagher,
Yeh jaam woh hai jis ko piye bin raha na jaye,
Chahat ka zakhm dil ko tamasha na bana de
Aesa hai chaak jis ko siye bin rahaa na jaye,
Dunya ke is afshaar mein hai us ki yaad yoon
Aandhi ho tez aur diye bin raha na jaye,
Ik simat tera hukam hai, ik simt kayenaat,
Yeh bojh apne sir pe liye bin raha na jaye..

Hum nahin kehte hamari, teri dunya ho jaye,
Itne rangon mein koi rang to apna ho jaye,
Ishq woh “turfa-balaa” hai ke kare jis ki talb,
Us ko maloom na ho, Sheher mein charcha ho jaye,
Do sitaron ko jo dekhoon teri ankhen ban jayen,
Chand ko dheyan mein laaon tera chehra ho jaye,
Har dora hai yeh nigehbaan khari hai kismat,
Kese mumkin hai ke har shasks ka socha, ho jaye,
Hum ko har bazm mein, Har haal mein sach kehna hai,
Sheher ka sheher khafaa hota hai, Acha ho jaye,
Ishq woh kaar-e-musalsal hai nahin jis ki akheer,
Us ki taufiq hai jis shakhs se jitna ho jaye,
Husn ki ankh woh tahsees talb hai amjad,
Bheerr ho charon taraf aur koi tanha ho jaye..

Kya kya hamare khawb they, jane kahan pe kho gaye,
Tum bhi kisi ke sath ho, Hum bhi kisi ke ho gaye,
Jane woh kyon they, Kaun they? aaye they kis liye yahan,
Woh jo fashaar-e-waqt mein, Bojh sa aik ddho gaye,
Us ki nazar ne yoon kiya gard-e-malal-e-jaan ko saaf,
Abar baras ke jis tarah, Saarey chaman ko dho gaye,
Katne se aur barhti hai uthey huye sarun ki fassal,
Apne lahu se ahl-e-dil, Beej yeh kese bo gaye,
Jin ke bagher ik pal, Jeena bhi muhaal tha,
Shaklain bhi un ki bujh gayin, Naam bi un ke kho gaye,
Ankhon mein bhar ke rut jage, Raston ko de ke duriyan,
Amjad woh apne hamsafar, Kese mazey se so gaye..

Main azal ki shaakh se toota hua,
Phir raha hoon aaj tak bhatka hua,
Dekhta rehta hai mujhe ko raat din,
Koi apne takht per betha hua,
Chand taare dur peechey reh gaye,
Main kahan par agaya urta hua,
Band khirki se hawaa ati rahi,
Aik sheesha tha kahin toota hua,
Khirkiyon mein, Kaghzon mein, Maiz per,
Saarey kamre mein hai woh phelaa hua,
Apne maazi ka samundar chaaniye,
Ik khazaana hai yahan dooba hua,
Doston ne kuch sabak aese diye,
Apne saaye se bhi hoon sehma hua,
Kis ki aahat atey atey ruk gayi,
Kis ne mera saans hai roka hua?
