bāhar saare maidāñ jiit chukā thā vo

ghar lauTā to pal bhar meñ TuuTā thā

bahar sare maidan jit chuka tha wo

ghar lauTa to pal bhar mein hi TuTa tha

har ik nadī se kaḌī pyaas le ke vo guzrā

ye aur baat ki vo ḳhud bhī ek dariyā thā

har ek nadi se kaDi pyas le ke wo guzra

ye aur baat ki wo KHud bhi ek dariya tha

shahr mein rah kar kis darja chaalak hua

pani ki har ek bund mein hire ki kani thi

har phuul pe us shaḳhs ko patthar the chalāne

ashkoñ se har ik barg ko bharnā thā hameñ bhī

har phul pe us shaKHs ko patthar the chalane

ashkon se har ek barg ko bharna tha hamein bhi

jaane kyā barsā thā raat charāġhoñ se

gae the hum bhi bahr ki tahon mein jhumte hue

har ek sip ke labon mein sirf regzar tha

ek sāhir kabhī guzrā thā idhar se 'ambar'

jā-e-hairat ki sabhī us ke asar meñ haiñ abhī

ek sahir kabhi guzra tha idhar se 'ambar'

ja-e-hairat ki sabhi us ke asar mein hain abhi

us ne har zarre ko tilism-ābād kiyā

haath hamāre lagī faqat hairānī hai

us ne har zarre ko tilism-abaad kiya

hath hamare lagi faqat hairani hai
