MORE BYIdris Babar

    mire qarīb mahtāb dekh saktā thā

    ga.e dinoñ meñ ye tālāb dekh saktā thā

    ik aise vaqt meñ sab peḌ maiñ ne naql kiye

    jahāñ pe maiñ inheñ shādāb dekh saktā thā

    ziyāda der usī naav meñ Thaharne se

    maiñ apne-āp ko ġharqāb dekh saktā thā

    koī bhī dil meñ zarā jam ke ḳhaak uḌātā to

    hazār gauhar-e-nāyāb dekh saktā thā

    kahāniyoñ ne mirī ādateñ bigāḌ thiiñ

    maiñ sirf sach ko zafar-yāb dekh saktā thā

    magar vo shahr kahānī meñ rah gayā hai dost!

    jahāñ maiñ rah ke tire ḳhvāb dekh saktā thā

    mere qarib hi mahtab dekh sakta tha

    gae dinon mein ye talab dekh sakta tha

    ek aise waqt mein sab peD main ne naql kiye

    jahan pe main inhen shadab dekh sakta tha

    ziyaada der usi naw mein Thaharne se

    main apne-ap ko gharqab dekh sakta tha

    koi bhi dil mein zara jam ke KHak uData to

    hazar gauhar-e-nayab dekh sakta tha

    kahaniyon ne meri aadaten bigaD di thin

    main sirf sach ko zafar-yab dekh sakta tha

    magar wo shahr kahani mein rah gaya hai dost!

    jahan main rah ke tere KHwab dekh sakta tha
