Sher 47

log nazroñ ko bhī paḌh lete haiñ

apnī āñkhoñ ko jhukā.e rakhnā

log nazron ko bhi paDh lete hain

apni aankhon ko jhukae rakhna

kachche makān jitne the bārish meñ bah ga.e

varna jo merā dukh thā vo dukh umr bhar thā

kachche makan jitne the barish mein bah gae

warna jo mera dukh tha wo dukh umr bhar ka tha

na jaane log Thaharte haiñ vaqt-e-shām kahāñ

hameñ to ghar meñ bhī rukne hauslā na huā

na jaane log Thaharte hain waqt-e-sham kahan

hamein to ghar mein bhi rukne ka hausla na hua

'aḳhtar' guzarte lamhoñ aahaT pe yuuñ na chauñk

is mātamī julūs meñ ik zindagī bhī hai

'aKHtar' guzarte lamhon ki aahaT pe yun na chaunk

is matami julus mein ek zindagi bhi hai

maiñ ne jo ḳhvāb abhī dekhā nahīñ hai 'aḳhtar'

merā har ḳhvāb usī ḳhvāb ta.abīr bhī hai

main ne jo KHwab abhi dekha nahin hai 'aKHtar'

mera har KHwab usi KHwab ki tabir bhi hai
