saath bārish meñ liye phirte ho us ko 'anjum'

tum ne is shahr meñ kyā aag lagānī hai koī

sath barish mein liye phirte ho us ko 'anjum'

tum ne is shahr mein kya aag lagani hai koi

maañ duā na baap shafqat saayā hai

aaj apne saath apnā janam din manāyā hai

man ki dua na bap ki shafqat ka saya hai

aaj apne sath apna janam din manaya hai

raushnī bhī nahīñ havā bhī nahīñ

maañ nemul-badal ḳhudā bhī nahīñ

raushni bhi nahin hawa bhi nahin

man ka nemul-badal KHuda bhi nahin
