    karb ke shahr se nikle to ye manzar dekhā

    ham ko logoñ ne bulāyā hameñ chhū kar dekhā

    vo jo barsāt meñ bhīgā to nigāheñ uTThīñ

    yuuñ lagā hai koī turshā huā patthar dekhā

    koī saaya bhī na sahme hue ghar se niklā

    ham ne TuuTī huī dahlīz ko aksar dekhā

    soch peḌ javāñ ho ke banā aisā rafīq

    zehn ke qad ne use apne barābar dekhā

    jab bhī chāhā hai ki malbūs-e-vafā ko chhū leñ

    misl-e-ḳhushbū koī uḌtā huā paikar dekhā

    raqs karte hue lamhoñ zabāñ guñg huī

    apne siine meñ jo utrā huā ḳhanjar dekhā

    zindagī itnī pareshāñ hai ye sochā bhī na thā

    us ke atrāf meñ sholoñ samundar dekhā

    raat bhar ḳhauf se chaTḳhe the sahar ḳhātir

    sub.h-dam ḳhud ko bikharte hue dar par dekhā

    vo jo uḌtī hai sadā dast-e-vafā meñ 'afzal'

    usī miTTī meñ nihāñ dard gauhar dekhā

    karb ke shahr se nikle to ye manzar dekha

    hum ko logon ne bulaya hamein chhu kar dekha

    wo jo barsat mein bhiga to nigahen uTThin

    yun laga hai koi tursha hua patthar dekha

    koi saya bhi na sahme hue ghar se nikla

    hum ne TuTi hui dahliz ko aksar dekha

    soch ka peD jawan ho ke bana aisa rafiq

    zehn ke qad ne use apne barabar dekha

    jab bhi chaha hai ki malbus-e-wafa ko chhu len

    misl-e-KHushbu koi uDta hua paikar dekha

    raqs karte hue lamhon ki zaban gung hui

    apne sine mein jo utra hua KHanjar dekha

    zindagi itni pareshan hai ye socha bhi na tha

    us ke atraf mein sholon ka samundar dekha

    raat bhar KHauf se chaTKHe the sahar ki KHatir

    subh-dam KHud ko bikharte hue dar par dekha

    wo jo uDti hai sada dast-e-wafa mein 'afzal'

    usi miTTi mein nihan dard ka gauhar dekha
