kyā ho sake hisāb ki jab āgahī kahe

ab tak to rā.egānī meñ saarā safar kiyā

kya ho sake hisab ki jab aagahi kahe

ab tak to raegani mein sara safar kiya

ye kyā ki baiThā hai dariyā kinār-e-dariyā par

maiñ aaj bahtā huā rahā huuñ paanī meñ

ye kya ki baiTha hai dariya kinar-e-dariya par

main aaj bahta hua ja raha hun pani mein

ye jhāñk letī hai andar se ārzū-ḳhāna

havā qad mirī dīvār se ziyāda hai

ye jhank leti hai andar se aarzu-KHana

hawa ka qad meri diwar se ziyaada hai

dar-e-imkān dastak mujhe bhejī ga.ī hai

merī qismat meñ to maujūd daulat nahīñ hai

dar-e-imkan ki dastak mujhe bheji gai hai

meri qismat mein to maujud ki daulat nahin hai
