aaj bhī burī kyā hai kal bhī ye burī kyā thī


is naam duniyā hai ye badaltī rahtī hai

bāzīcha-e-atfāl hai duniyā mire aage


hotā hai shab-o-roz tamāshā mire aage

badal rahe haiñ zamāne ke rañg kyā kyā dekh


nazar uThā ki ye duniyā hai dekhne ke liye

bahut mushkil hai duniyā sañvarnā


tirī zulfoñ pech-o-ḳham nahīñ hai

behtar to hai yahī ki na duniyā se dil lage


par kyā kareñ jo kaam na be-dil-lagī chale

bhuul shāyad bahut baḌī kar


dil ne duniyā se dostī kar

chale to paañv ke nīche kuchal ga.ī koī shai


nashe jhoñk meñ dekhā nahīñ ki duniyā hai

daa.em ābād rahegī duniyā


ham na hoñge koī ham hogā

The sher is inscribed on Nasir Kazmi's tombstone

dekhā hai zindagī ko kuchh itne qarīb se


chehre tamām lagne lage haiñ ajiib se

dil kabhī ḳhvāb ke pīchhe kabhī duniyā taraf


ek ne ajr diyā ek ne ujrat nahīñ

duniyā badal rahī hai zamāne ke saath saath


ab roz roz dekhne vaalā kahāñ se laa.eñ

duniyā bas is se aur ziyāda nahīñ hai kuchh


kuchh roz haiñ guzārne aur kuchh guzar ga.e

duniyā hai sambhal ke dil lagānā


yaañ log ajab ajab mileñge

duniyā jise kahte haiñ jaadū khilaunā hai


mil jaa.e to miTTī hai kho jaa.e to sonā hai

duniyā mahfiloñ se uktā gayā huuñ rab


kyā lutf anjuman jab dil bujh gayā ho

duniyā ravish dekhī tirī zulf-e-dotā meñ


bantī hai ye mushkil se bigaḌtī hai zarā meñ

duniyā meñ ham rahe to ka.ī din pa is tarah


dushman ke ghar meñ jaise koī mehmāñ rahe

duniyā mire paḌos meñ ābād hai magar


merī duā-salām nahīñ us zalīl se

duniyā ne kis raah-e-fanā meñ diyā hai saath


tum bhī chale chalo yūñhī jab tak chalī chale

duniyā ne tajrabāt o havādis shakl meñ


jo kuchh mujhe diyā hai vo lauTā rahā huuñ maiñ

duniyā pasand aane lagī dil ko ab bahut


samjho ki ab ye baaġh bhī murjhāne vaalā hai
