    dekhte dekhte jab maut sitāre huī

    phir koī sub.h kahāñ ḳhvāb ke maare huī

    vo muhājir thā muhājir muhājir rahā

    kab tire shahr meñ tadbīr guzāre huī

    us ke farmān sabhī dil siyāhī ne likhe

    aisī tauhīn kahāñ nūr-nazāre huī

    bujhte bujhte bhī huī ātish-e-jāñ tez bahut

    aur jo rasm thī baaqī vo sharāre huī

    zindagī bhī kisī bāzār aurat tarah

    na biyāhe huī aur na kañvāre huī

    kyā sunā.ūñ tujhe rūdād-e-safar kaisī hai

    dhuup aamad huī chhāñv ḳhasāre huī

    yuuñ to vo chāñd bhī be-dāġh nahīñ thā 'ḳhurshīd'

    aur mujh se bhī ḳhatā ek ishāre huī

    dekhte dekhte jab maut sitare ki hui

    phir koi subh kahan KHwab ke mare ki hui

    wo muhajir tha muhajir ka muhajir hi raha

    kab tere shahr mein tadbir guzare ki hui

    us ke farman sabhi dil ki siyahi ne likhe

    aisi tauhin kahan nur-nazare ki hui

    bujhte bujhte bhi hui aatish-e-jaan tez bahut

    aur jo rasm thi baqi wo sharare ki hui

    zindagi bhi kisi bazar ki aurat ki tarah

    na biyahe ki hui aur na kanware ki hui

    kya sunaun tujhe rudad-e-safar kaisi hai

    dhup aamad ki hui chhanw KHasare ki hui

    yun to wo chand bhi be-dagh nahin tha 'KHurshid'

    aur mujh se bhi KHata ek ishaare ki hui
