Zahida Kamal

kahnā paḌā unhīñ ko masīhā-e-vaqt bhī

jin se hamāre dard darmāñ na ho sakā

kahna paDa unhin ko masiha-e-waqt bhi

jin se hamare dard ka darman na ho saka

shāmil na hote husn ke jalve agar 'kamāl'

hotā kahāñ ye nuur shab-e-māhtāb meñ

shamil na hote husn ke jalwe agar 'kamal'

hota kahan ye nur shab-e-mahtab mein

jab tak tumhārā husn numāyāñ na ho sakā

raushan charāġh-e-ālam-e-imkān na ho sakā

jab tak tumhaara husn numayan na ho saka

raushan charagh-e-alam-e-imkan na ho saka

afsāna-e-hayāt banī phuul ban ga.ī

jab muskurā.ī koī kalī iztirāb meñ

afsana-e-hayat bani phul ban gai

jab muskurai koi kali iztirab mein
