shadīd pyaas thī phir bhī chhuā na paanī ko

maiñ dekhtā rahā dariyā tirī ravānī ko

shadid pyas thi phir bhi chhua na pani ko

main dekhta raha dariya teri rawani ko

mile to us ko hamārā koī salām kahe

na jaane ruTh ke baiTha hai dil ka chain kahan

mile to us ko hamara koi salam kahe

sun to sahī jahāñ meñ hai terā fasāna kyā

kahtī hai tujh ko ḳhalq-e-ḳhudā ġhā.ebāna kyā

sun to sahi jahan mein hai tera fasana kya

kahti hai tujh ko KHalq-e-KHuda ghaebana kya

sab ik charāġh ke parvāne honā chāhte haiñ

ajiib log haiñ dīvāne honā chāhte haiñ

sab ek charagh ke parwane hona chahte hain

ajib log hain diwane hona chahte hain

Asad Badayuni

ulTī ho ga.iiñ sab tadbīreñ kuchh na davā ne kaam kiyā

dekhā is bīmāri-e-dil ne āḳhir kaam tamām kiyā

Stratagems all came apart, no cure could render remedy

it was this ailment of my heart, that finished me off finally

ulTi ho gain sab tadbiren kuchh na dawa ne kaam kiya

dekha is bimari-e-dil ne aaKHir kaam tamam kiya

Stratagems all came apart, no cure could render remedy

it was this ailment of my heart, that finished me off finally

hairāñ huuñ dil ko ro.uuñ ki pīTūñ jigar ko maiñ
