    palkoñ dahlīz pe chamkā ek sitārā thā

    sāhil is bhiiḌ meñ jaane kaun hamārā thā

    kohsāroñ guuñj sūrat phail gayā hai vo

    maiñ ne apne-āp meñ chhup kar jise pukārā thā

    sar se guzartī har ik mauj ko aise dekhte haiñ

    jaise is girdāb-e-fanā meñ yahī sahārā thā

    hijr shab vo niilī āñkheñ aur bhī niilī thiiñ

    jaise us ne apne sar se bojh utārā thā

    jis jhilmiltā meñ tum ne mujh ko qatl kiyā

    patjhaḌ us raat vo sab se raushan taarā thā

    tark-e-vafā ke ba.ad milā to jab ma.alūm huā

    is meñ kitne rañg the us ke kaun hamārā thā

    kaun kahāñ par jhūTā niklā kyā batlāte ham

    duniyā tafrīh thī is meñ hameñ ḳhasārā thā

    jo manzil bhī raah meñ aa.ī dil bojh banī

    vo us ta.abīr na thī jo ḳhvāb hamārā thā

    ye kaisī āvāz hai jis zinda guuñj huuñ maiñ

    sub.h-e-azal meñ kis ne 'amjad' mujhe pukārā thā

    palkon ki dahliz pe chamka ek sitara tha

    sahil ki is bhiD mein jaane kaun hamara tha

    kohsaron ki gunj ki surat phail gaya hai wo

    main ne apne-ap mein chhup kar jise pukara tha

    sar se guzarti har ek mauj ko aise dekhte hain

    jaise is girdab-e-fana mein yahi sahaara tha

    hijr ki shab wo nili aankhen aur bhi nili thin

    jaise us ne apne sar se bojh utara tha

    jis ki jhilmilta mein tum ne mujh ko qatl kiya

    patjhaD ki us raat wo sab se raushan tara tha

    tark-e-wafa ke baad mila to jab malum hua

    is mein kitne rang the us ke kaun hamara tha

    kaun kahan par jhuTa nikla kya batlate hum

    duniya ki tafrih thi is mein hamein KHasara tha

    jo manzil bhi rah mein aai dil ka bojh bani

    wo us ki tabir na thi jo KHwab hamara tha

    ye kaisi aawaz hai jis ki zinda gunj hun main

    subh-e-azal mein kis ne 'amjad' mujhe pukara tha
