dhuup meñ kaun kise yaad kiyā kartā hai

par tire shahr meñ barsāt to hotī hogī

dhup mein kaun kise yaad kiya karta hai

par tere shahr mein barsat to hoti hogi

apnī taraf to maiñ bhī nahīñ huuñ abhī talak

aur us taraf tamām zamāna usī hai

apni taraf to main bhi nahin hun abhi talak

aur us taraf tamam zamana usi ka hai

vo mārka ki aaj bhī sar ho nahīñ sakā

maiñ thak ke muskurā diyā jab ro nahīñ sakā

wo marka ki aaj bhi sar ho nahin saka

main thak ke muskura diya jab ro nahin saka

is baar rāh-e-ishq kuchh itnī tavīl thī

us ke badan se ho ke guzarnā paḌā mujhe

is bar rah-e-ishq kuchh itni tawil thi

us ke badan se ho ke guzarna paDa mujhe

ye kār-e-zindagī thā to karnā paḌā mujhe

ḳhud ko sameTne meñ bikharnā paḌā mujhe

ye kar-e-zindagi tha to karna paDa mujhe

KHud ko sameTne mein bikharna paDa mujhe

jo shaam hotī hai har roz haar jaatā huuñ

maiñ apne jism parchhā.iyoñ se laḌte hue

jo sham hoti hai har roz haar jata hun

main apne jism ki parchhaiyon se laDte hue

shahr meñ saare charāġhoñ ziyā ḳhāmosh hai

tīrgī har samt phailā kar havā ḳhāmosh hai

shahr mein sare charaghon ki ziya KHamosh hai

tirgi har samt phaila kar hawa KHamosh hai

pahle sahrā se mujhe laayā samundar taraf

naav par kāġhaz phir mujh ko savār us ne kiyā

pahle sahra se mujhe laya samundar ki taraf

naw par kaghaz ki phir mujh ko sawar us ne kiya

na ābshār na sahrā lagā sake qīmat

ham apnī pyaas ko le kar dahan meñ lauT aa.e

na aabshaar na sahra laga sake qimat

hum apni pyas ko le kar dahan mein lauT aae
