bachā liyā tirī ḳhushbū ke farq ne varna

maiñ tere vahm meñ tujh se lipaTne vaalā thā

bacha liya teri KHushbu ke farq ne warna

main tere wahm mein tujh se lipaTne wala tha

ik qadam bhī jo merī taraf baḌhā detā

maiñ manzileñ tirī dahlīz se milā detā

tu ek qadam bhi jo meri taraf baDha deta

main manzilen teri dahliz se mila deta

mere raste meñ jo raunaq thī mere fan thī

mere ghar meñ jo añdherā thā merā apnā thā

mere raste mein jo raunaq thi mere fan ki thi

mere ghar mein jo andhera tha mera apna tha

sirf darvāze talak ke lauT aayā huuñ

aisā lagtā hai ki sadiyoñ safar kar aayā

sirf darwaze talak ja ke hi lauT aaya hun

aisa lagta hai ki sadiyon ka safar kar aaya

zamīñ ke zaḳhm samundar to bhar na pā.egā

ye kaam dīda-e-tar tujh ko sauñpnā hogā

zamin ke zaKHm samundar to bhar na paega

ye kaam dida-e-tar tujh ko saunpna hoga

ḳhud uchhālūñ patthar ḳhud sar par le luuñ

jab chāhūñ suune mausam se manzar le luuñ

KHud hi uchhaalun patthar KHud hi sar par le lun

jab chahun sune mausam se manzar le lun

bastī meñ ġharīboñ jahāñ aag lagī thī

sunte haiñ vahāñ ek nayā shahr basegā

basti mein gharibon ki jahan aag lagi thi

sunte hain wahan ek naya shahr basega
