    be-hoshiyon mein kyun hai ye hushyariyan na puchh

    pita hun wo jo zulf ki rangin ghaTaon mein

    khinchti hai un ghani hui palkon ki chhanw mein

    hushyar is liye hun ki mai-KHwar hun tera

    sayyaad-e-sher hun ki giraftar hun tera

    main wo hun jis ke gham ne tere dil mein rah ki

    ek umr jis ke ishq mein KHud tu ne aah ki

    soya hai shauq sej pe teri nigah ki

    raaten kaTi hain sae mein chashm-e-siyah ki

    kyun kar na shaKH-e-gul ki lachak ho bayan mein

    teri kamar ka loch hai meri zaban mein

    tarshe hue labon ke bahakte KHitab se

    sarshaar ankhDiyon ke dahakte shabab se

    mauj-e-nafs ke itr se mukhDe ki aab se

    barah baras tapa ke zamana suhag ka

    sincha hai tu ne bagh mere dil ki aag ka

    garmi se jis ki barf ka dewta Dare wo aag

    shoalon mein os ko jo mubaddal kare wo aag

    lau se jo zamharir ka daman bhare wo aag

    had hai jo nam nar-e-saqar par dhare wo aag

    jis ki lapaT gale mein jalati hai rag ko

    pala hai qalb-e-naz mein tu ne us aag ko
