jañg shor bhī kuchh der to tham saktā hai

phir se ik amn afvāh uḌā jaa.e

jang ka shor bhi kuchh der to tham sakta hai

phir se ek amn ki afwah uDa di jae

tiir mat dekh mire zaḳhm ko dekh

yār-e-yār apnā adū meñ gum hai

tir mat dekh mere zaKHm ko dekh

yar-e-yar apna adu mein gum hai

is ājizī se kiyā us ne mere sar savāl

ḳhud apne haath se talvār toḌ maiñ ne

is aajizi se kiya us ne mere sar ka sawal

KHud apne hath se talwar toD di main ne

ret par vo paḌī hai mushk koī

tiir bhī aur kamān kuchh hai

ret par wo paDi hai mushk koi

tir bhi aur kaman sa kuchh hai
