insān bulandī o pastī ko dekh kar

insāñ kahāñ khaḌā hai hameñ sochnā paḌā

insan ki bulandi o pasti ko dekh kar

insan kahan khaDa hai hamein sochna paDa

aage nikal ga.e the zarā apne-āp se

ham ko 'habīb' ḳhud taraf lauTnā paḌā

aage nikal gae the zara apne-ap se

hum ko 'habib' KHud ki taraf lauTna paDa

'habīb' is zindagī ke pech-o-ḳham se ham bhī nālāñ haiñ

hameñ jhūTe nagīnoñ chamak bhātī nahīñ shāyad

'habib' is zindagi ke pech-o-KHam se hum bhi nalan hain

hamein jhuTe naginon ki chamak bhati nahin shayad
