    jalā diyā shajar-e-jāñ ki sabz-baḳht na thā

    kisī bhī rut meñ harā ho ye vo daraḳht na thā

    vo ḳhvāb dekhā thā shahzādiyoñ ne pichhle pahar

    phir us ke baad muqaddar meñ taaj o taḳht na thā

    zarā se jabr se maiñ bhī to TuuT saktī thī

    mirī tarah se tabī.at vo bhī saḳht na thā

    mire liye to vo ḳhanjar bhī phuul ban ke uThā

    zabān saḳht thī lahja kabhī karaḳht na thā

    añdherī rātoñ ke tanhā musāfiroñ ke liye

    diyā jalātā huā koī sāz-o-raḳht na thā

    ga.e vo din ki mujhī tak thā merā dukh mahdūd

    ḳhabar ke jaisā ye afsāna laḳht-laḳht na thā

    jala diya shajar-e-jaan ki sabz-baKHt na tha

    kisi bhi rut mein hara ho ye wo daraKHt na tha

    wo KHwab dekha tha shahzadiyon ne pichhle pahar

    phir us ke baad muqaddar mein taj o taKHt na tha

    zara se jabr se main bhi to TuT sakti thi

    meri tarah se tabiat ka wo bhi saKHt na tha

    mere liye to wo KHanjar bhi phul ban ke uTha

    zaban saKHt thi lahja kabhi karaKHt na tha

    andheri raaton ke tanha musafiron ke liye

    diya jalata hua koi saz-o-raKHt na tha

    gae wo din ki mujhi tak tha mera dukh mahdud

    KHabar ke jaisa ye afsana laKHt-laKHt na tha
