Dabistan-e-Lakhnau ke kuch namoone #2: Asr Lakhnavi

Continuing the series, we come to Nawab Jafar Ali Khan Asr Lakhnavi.

Aah se jab se dil mein doobe teer ubhare jayenge
Dekh lena door tak urh ke sharare jayenge

Mauj-e-toofan ko jinhon ne cherhna seekha nahi
Is kinaare se bhala kya us kinaare jayenge

Itni hi rangeen hoti jayegi apni nazar
Jis qadr tere tassavur ko sanvare jayenge

Kuch na kuch ho hi rahega dard mandi ka maal
Jan ke dushman tujhi ko ham pukaare jayenge

Khaak ho kar bhi na aayega inhen dam bhar qaraar
Uth ke tere dar se jo aafat ke maare jayenge

Ek harf-e-dilnasheen! Yeh bhi nahi? To ek nigaah!
Door jaane waale kyunkar be sahaare jayenge

Baithe saahil par gina karte hain jo lehren ‘Asr’
Vaqt padhne par bhala kya dhare dhare jayenge
