    is umr ke ba.ad us ko dekhā!

    āñkhoñ meñ savāl the hazāroñ

    hoñToñ pe magar vahī tabassum!

    chehre pe likhī huī udāsī

    lahje meñ magar balā Thahrāo

    āvāz meñ gūñjtī judā.ī

    bāñheñ thiiñ magar visāl-e-sāmāñ!

    simTī huī us ke bāzuoñ meñ

    tā-der maiñ sochtī rahī thī

    kis abr-e-gurez-pā ḳhātir

    maiñ kaise shajar se kaT ga.ī thī

    kis chhāñv ko tark kar diyā thā

    maiñ us ke gale lagī huī thī

    vo poñchh rahā thā mire aañsū

    lekin baḌī der ho chukī thii!

    is umr ke baad us ko dekha!

    aankhon mein sawal the hazaron

    honTon pe magar wahi tabassum!

    chehre pe likhi hui udasi

    lahje mein magar bala ka Thahrao

    aawaz mein gunjti judai

    banhen thin magar visal-e-saman!

    simTi hui us ke bazuon mein

    ta-der main sochti rahi thi

    kis abr-e-gurez-pa ki KHatir

    main kaise shajar se kaT gai thi

    kis chhanw ko tark kar diya tha

    main us ke gale lagi hui thi

    wo ponchh raha tha mere aansu

    lekin baDi der ho chuki thi!
