    shahr meñ chhā.ī huī dīvār-tā-dīvār thī

    ek pathrīlī ḳhamoshī paikar-e-guftār thī

    bādaloñ chiTThiyāñ kyā aa.iiñ dariyāoñ ke naam

    har taraf paanī ik chaltī huī dīvār thī

    inkishāf-e-shahr-e-nā-mālūm thā har sher meñ

    tajrabe tāza-kārī sūrat-e-ash.ār thī

    aarzū thī sāmne baiThe raheñ bāteñ kareñ

    aarzū lekin bechārī kis qadar lāchār thī

    ghar donoñ khiḌkiyāñ khultī thiiñ saare shahr par

    ek manzar puure shahr meñ takrār thī

    āñsuoñ ke chand qatroñ se thī tar puurī kitāb

    har varaq par ek sūrat mā.el-e-guftār thī

    us se milne talab meñ liye kuchh aur din

    vo bhī ḳhud biite dinoñ se bar-sar-e-paikār thī

    shahr mein chhai hui diwar-ta-diwar thi

    ek pathrili KHamoshi paikar-e-guftar thi

    baadalon ki chiTThiyan kya aain dariyaon ke nam

    har taraf pani ki ek chalti hui diwar thi

    inkishaf-e-shahr-e-na-malum tha har sher mein

    tajrabe ki taza-kari surat-e-ashaar thi

    aarzu thi samne baiThe rahen baaten karen

    aarzu lekin bechaari kis qadar lachaar thi

    ghar ki donon khiDkiyan khulti thin sare shahr par

    ek hi manzar ki pure shahr mein takrar thi

    aansuon ke chand qatron se thi tar puri kitab

    har waraq par ek surat mael-e-guftar thi

    us se milne ki talab mein ji liye kuchh aur din

    wo bhi KHud bite dinon se bar-sar-e-paikar thi
