ai dil tamām naf.a hai saudā-e-ishq meñ

ik jaan ziyāñ hai so aisā ziyāñ nahīñ

ai dil tamam nafa hai sauda-e-ishq mein

ek jaan ka ziyan hai so aisa ziyan nahin

vo aur va.ada vasl qāsid nahīñ nahīñ

sach sach batā ye lafz unhī zabāñ ke haiñ

wo aur wada wasl ka qasid nahin nahin

sach sach bata ye lafz unhi ki zaban ke hain

'āzurdā' mar ke kūcha-e-jānāñ meñ rah gayā

thī duā kisī ne ki jannat meñ ghar mile

'azurda' mar ke kucha-e-jaanan mein rah gaya

di thi dua kisi ne ki jannat mein ghar mile

kaTtī kisī tarah se nahīñ ye shab-e-firāq

shāyad ki gardish aaj tujhe āsmāñ nahīñ

kaTti kisi tarah se nahin ye shab-e-firaq

shayad ki gardish aaj tujhe aasman nahin

nāseh yahāñ ye fikr hai siina bhī chaak ho

hai fikr-e-baḳhiya tujh ko garebāñ ke chaak meñ

naseh yahan ye fikr hai sina bhi chaak ho

hai fikr-e-baKHiya tujh ko gareban ke chaak mein

is dard-e-judā.ī se kahīñ jaan nikal jaa.e

'āzurdā' mire haq meñ zarā yuuñ bhī duā kar

is dard-e-judai se kahin jaan nikal jae

'azurda' mere haq mein zara yun bhi dua kar

falak ne bhī sīkhe haiñ tere taur

ki apne kiye par pashemāñ nahīñ

falak ne bhi sikhe hain tere hi taur

ki apne kiye par pasheman nahin

maiñ aur zauq-e-bāda-kashī le ga.iiñ mujhe

ye kam-nigāhiyāñ tirī bazm-e-sharāb meñ

main aur zauq-e-baada-kashi le gain mujhe

ye kam-nigahiyan teri bazm-e-sharab mein
