us se milnā to use eid-mubārak kahnā

ye bhī kahnā ki mirī eid mubārak kar de

us se milna to use eid-mubarak kahna

ye bhi kahna ki meri eid mubarak kar de

chāñd taare to mire bas meñ nahīñ haiñ 'āzar'

phuul laayā huuñ mirā haath kahāñ tak jāatā

chand tare to mere bas mein nahin hain 'azar'

phul laya hun mera hath kahan tak jaata

us se kuchh ḳhaas ta.alluq bhī nahīñ hai apnā

maiñ pareshān huā jis pareshānī par

us se kuchh KHas talluq bhi nahin hai apna

main pareshan hua jis ki pareshani par

ab mujh ko ehtimām se kiije supurd-e-ḳhāk

uktā chukā huuñ jism malba uThā ke maiñ

ab mujh ko ehtimam se kije supurd-e-KHak

ukta chuka hun jism ka malba uTha ke main

maiñ jab maidān ḳhālī kar ke aayā

mirā dushman akelā rah gayā thā

main jab maidan KHali kar ke aaya

mera dushman akela rah gaya tha

ḳhud ko apne saath rakkhā jis jahāñ sair

ek lamhe ke liye tanha nahin hone diya

KHud ko apne sath rakkha jis jahan ki sair ki

badan ko chhoḌ jaanā hai ruuh ne 'āzar'

har ik charāġh se āḳhir dhuāñ nikaltā hai

badan ko chhoD hi jaana hai ruh ne 'azar'

har ek charagh se aaKHir dhuan nikalta hai

ik din jo yūñhī parda-e-aflāk uThāyā

barpā thā tamāshā koī tanhā.ī se aage

ek din jo yunhi parda-e-aflak uThaya

barpa tha tamasha koi tanhai se aage

suḳhan-sarā.ī koī sahl kaam thoḌī hai

ye log kis liye janjāl meñ paḌe hue haiñ

suKHan-sarai koi sahl kaam thoDi hai

ye log kis liye janjal mein paDe hue hain

vahī sitāra-numā ik charāġh hai 'āzar'

mirā ḳhayāl thā niklegā taaq se kuchh aur

wahi sitara-numa ek charagh hai 'azar'

mera KHayal tha niklega taq se kuchh aur
