Kalb-e-husain Nadir

log kahte haiñ ki fann-e-shā.irī manhūs hai

sher kahte kahte maiñ deputy collector ho gayā

log kahte hain ki fann-e-shairi manhus hai

sher kahte kahte main deputy collector ho gaya

puurā kareñge holī meñ kyā vāda-e-visāl

jin ko abhī basant ai dil ḳhabar nahīñ

pura karenge holi mein kya wada-e-visal

jin ko abhi basant ki ai dil KHabar nahin

na ḳhanjar uThegā na talvār in se

ye baazū mire āzmā.e hue haiñ

na KHanjar uThega na talwar in se

ye bazu mere aazmae hue hain

chaltī to hai par shoḳhī-e-raftār kahāñ hai

talvār meñ pāzeb jhankār kahāñ hai

chalti to hai par shoKHi-e-raftar kahan hai

talwar mein pazeb ki jhankar kahan hai

haiñ diin ke pāband na duniyā ke muqayyad

kyā ishq ne is bhūl-bhulayyāñ se nikālā

hain din ke paband na duniya ke muqayyad

kya ishq ne is bhul-bhulayyan se nikala

ik baat par qarār unheñ rāt-bhar nahīñ

do do pahar jo haañ hai to do do pahar nahīñ

ek baat par qarar unhen raat-bhar nahin

do do pahar jo han hai to do do pahar nahin

tirī tārīf ho ai sahib-e-ausāf kyā mumkin

zabānoñ se dahānoñ se takallum se bayānoñ se

teri tarif ho ai sahib-e-ausaf kya mumkin

zabanon se dahanon se takallum se bayanon se

dariyā-e-sharāb us ne bahāyā hai hamesha

saaqī se jo kashtī ke talabgār hue haiñ

dariya-e-sharab us ne bahaya hai hamesha

saqi se jo kashti ke talabgar hue hain

phir na baaqī rahe ġhubār kabhī

holī khelo jo ḳhāksāroñ meñ

phir na baqi rahe ghubar kabhi

holi khelo jo KHaksaron mein

naav kāġhaz tan-e-ḳhākī-e-insāñ samjho

ġharq ho jā.eñgī chhīñTā jo paḌā paanī

naw kaghaz ki tan-e-KHaki-e-insan samjho

gharq ho jaengi chhinTa jo paDa pani ka

ho ga.e raam jo tum ġhair se a jān-e-jahāñ

jal rahī hai dil-e-pur-nūr lanka dekho

ho gae ram jo tum ghair se a jaan-e-jahan

jal rahi hai dil-e-pur-nur ki lanka dekho
