haqīqat ko chhupāyā ham se kyā kyā us ke make-up ne

jise lailā samajh baiThe the vo lailā maañ niklī

haqiqat ko chhupaya hum se kya kya us ke make-up ne

jise laila samajh baiThe the wo laila ki man nikli

jise kahte ho tum ik qatra-e-ashk

mire dil mukammal dāstāñ hai

jise kahte ho tum ek qatra-e-ashk

mere dil ki mukammal dastan hai

ḳhudā kātib saffākī se bhī mahfūz farmā.e

agar nuqta uḌā de nām-zad nāmard ho jaa.e

KHuda katib ki saffaki se bhi mahfuz farmae

agar nuqta uDa de nam-zad namard ho jae
