afsurdagī bhī husn hai tābindagī bhī husn

ham ko ḳhizāñ ne tum ko sañvārā bahār ne

afsurdagi bhi husn hai tabindagi bhi husn

hum ko KHizan ne tum ko sanwara bahaar ne

ḳhirad ko ḳhāna-e-dil nigah-bāñ kar diyā ham ne

ye ghar ābād hotā is ko vīrāñ kar diyā ham ne

KHirad ko KHana-e-dil ka nigah-ban kar diya hum ne

ye ghar aabaad hota is ko viran kar diya hum ne

mire sāz-e-nafas ḳhāmushī par ruuh kahtī hai

na aa.ī mujh ko niind aur so gayā afsāna-ḳhvāñ merā

mere saz-e-nafas ki KHamushi par ruh kahti hai

na aai mujh ko nind aur so gaya afsana-KHwan mera

zabāñ se dil fasāna adā kiyā na gayā

ye tarjumāñ to banī thī magar banā na gayā

zaban se dil ka fasana ada kiya na gaya

ye tarjuman to bani thi magar bana na gaya

churāne ko churā laayā maiñ jalve rū-e-raushan se

magar ab bijliyāñ lipTī huī haiñ dil ke dāman se

churane ko chura laya main jalwe ru-e-raushan se

magar ab bijliyan lipTi hui hain dil ke daman se
