kabhī to sard lagā dopahar sūraj bhī

kabhī badan ke liye ik karan ziyāda huī

kabhi to sard laga dopahar ka suraj bhi

kabhi badan ke liye ek karan ziyaada hui

āvāzoñ bhiiḌ meñ itne shor-sharābe meñ

apnī bhī ik raa.e rakhnā kitnā mushkil hai

aawazon ki bhiD mein itne shor-sharabe mein

apni bhi ek rae rakhna kitna mushkil hai

ba-nām-e-amn-o-amāñ kaun maarā jā.egā

na jaane aaj yahāñ kaun maarā jā.egā

ba-nam-e-amn-o-aman kaun mara jaega

na jaane aaj yahan kaun mara jaega

diye ab shahr meñ raushan nahīñ haiñ

havā hukmarānī ho ga.ī kyā

diye ab shahr mein raushan nahin hain

hawa ki hukmarani ho gai kya

jo yād-e-yār se guft-o-shunīd kar hai

to goyā phuul se ḳhushbū kashīd kar hai

jo yaad-e-yar se guft-o-shunid kar li hai

to goya phul se KHushbu kashid kar li hai

hudūd-e-vaqt ke darvāze muntazir haiñ 'nasīm'

ki ye fāsle kar ke ubuur dastak de

hudud-e-waqt ke darwaze muntazir hain 'nasim'

ki tu ye fasle kar ke ubur dastak de

lafz bhī jis ahd meñ kho baiThe apnā e'tibār

ḳhāmushī ko is meñ kitnā mo'tabar maiñ ne kiyā

lafz bhi jis ahd mein kho baiThe apna e'tibar

KHamushi ko is mein kitna mo'tabar main ne kiya

safar marhala-e-saḳht ġhanīmat thā

Thahar ga.e to badan thakan ziyāda huī

safar ka marhala-e-saKHt hi ghanimat tha

Thahar gae to badan ki thakan ziyaada hui

jo baat thī havā meñ bikharne vaalī thī

jo ḳhat likhā thā vo purzoñ meñ baTne vaalā thā

jo baat ki thi hawa mein bikharne wali thi

jo KHat likha tha wo purzon mein baTne wala tha
