jiye jaa raha maiN-jigar muradabadi

جئے جا رہا ہوں میں ۔ جگر مرادآبادی

 

بے کیف دل ہے اور جیے جا رہا ہوں میں

خالی ہے شیشہ اور پیے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

پیہم جو آہ آہ کیے جا رہا ہوں میں

دولت ہے غم زکات دیئے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

مجبوریِ کمالِ محبّت تو دیکھنا

جینا نہیں قبول جیے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

وہ دل کہاں ہے اب کہ جسے  پیار کیجئے

مجبوریاں ہیں ساتھ دئیے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

رخصت ہوئی شباب کے ہمراہ زندگی

کہنے کی بات ہے کہ جیے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

پہلے شراب زیست تھی اب زیست ہے شراب

کوئی پلا رہا ہے، پیے جا رہا ہوں میں

 

जिए जा रहा हूँ मैं – जिगर मुरादाबादी

 

बे-कैफ़ दिल है और जिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

ख़ाली है शीशा और पिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

 

पैहम जो आह आह किए जा रहा हूँ मैं

दौलत है ग़म ज़कात दिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

 

मजबूरी-ए कमाल-ए मोहब्बत तो देखना

जीना नहीं क़ुबूल जिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

 

वो दिल कहाँ है अब कि जिसे प्यार कीजिए

मजबूरियाँ हैं साथ दिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

 

रुख़्सत हुई शबाब के हमराह ज़िंदगी

कहने की बात है कि जिए जा रहा हूँ मैं

 

पहले शराब ज़ीस्त थी अब ज़ीस्त है शराब

कोई पिला रहा है पिए जा रहा हूँ मैं
