    gaaḌī khiḌkī se dekhā shab ko us shahr

    chāroñ or thā kaalā jañgal biich meñ ujlā shahr

    yaad na aatā kyuuñ gaañv meñ ham ko bhī lahore

    log samundar-pār na paa.eñ is se achchhā shahar

    sach hai har ik mulk ḳhudā des hai har insāñ

    lekin apnā shahr hai yaaro āḳhir apnā shahr

    ḳhvāb meñ sun kar jaag uThtā huuñ un chīḳh-pukār

    uf vo laḌte marte baasī uf vo jaltā shahr

    poshīda haiñ dil meñ us yādoñ ke tūfān

    dafn haiñ ek khañDar tah meñ kitne zinda shahr

    mujh par ik ghanghor udāsī tujh par rañg aur nuur

    merā chehra ban hai pyaar se terā chehra shahr

    kal baat hai aur thakan se ab tak chuur huuñ maiñ

    us laḌkī jism thā 'zāhid' ūñchā-nīchā shahr

    gaDi ki khiDki se dekha shab ko us ka shahr

    chaaron or tha kala jangal bich mein ujla shahr

    yaad na aata kyun ganw mein hum ko bhi lahore

    log samundar-par na paen is se achchha shahar

    sach hai har ek mulk KHuda ka des hai har insan ka

    lekin apna shahr hai yaro aaKHir apna shahr

    KHwab mein sun kar jag uThta hun un ki chiKH-pukar

    uf wo laDte marte basi uf wo jalta shahr

    poshida hain dil mein us ki yaadon ke tufan

    dafn hain ek khanDar ki tah mein kitne zinda shahr

    mujh par ek ghanghor udasi tujh par rang aur nur

    mera chehra ban hai pyar se tera chehra shahr

    kal ki baat hai aur thakan se ab tak chur hun main

    us laDki ka jism tha 'zahid' uncha-nicha shahr
