    kahte haiñ kabhī gosht na khātā thā ma.arrī

    phal-phūl pe kartā thā hamesha guzar-auqāt

    ik dost ne bhūnā huā tītar use bhejā

    shāyad ki vo shātir isī tarkīb se ho maat

    ye ḳhvān-e-tar-o-tāza ma.arrī ne jo dekhā

    kahne lagā vo sāhib-e-ġhufrān-o-luzūmāt

    ai murġhak-e-bechāra zarā ye to batā

    terā vo gunah kyā thā ye hai jis mukāfāt?

    afsos-sad-afsos ki shāhīñ na banā

    dekhe na tirī aañkh ne fitrat ke ishārāt!

    taqdīr ke qaazī ye fatvā hai azal se

    hai jurm-e-za.īfī sazā marg-e-mufājāt!

    kahte hain kabhi gosht na khata tha marri

    phal-phul pe karta tha hamesha guzar-auqat

    ek dost ne bhuna hua titar use bheja

    shayad ki wo shatir isi tarkib se ho mat

    ye KHwan-e-tar-o-taza marri ne jo dekha

    kahne laga wo sahib-e-ghufran-o-luzumat

    ai murghak-e-bechaara zara ye to bata tu

    tera wo gunah kya tha ye hai jis ki mukafat?

    afsos-sad-afsos ki shahin na bana tu

    dekhe na teri aankh ne fitrat ke ishaaraat!

    taqdir ke qazi ka ye fatwa hai azal se

    hai jurm-e-zaifi ki saza marg-e-mufajat!
