Bas ik jhijak hai yahī hāl-e-dil sunāne meñ
ki terā zikr bhī aa.egā is fasāne meñ


Jhukī jhukī sī nazar be-qarār hai ki nahīñ
Dabā dabā sā sahī dil meñ pyaar hai ki nahīñ

Muddat ke ba.ad us ne jo kī lutf kī nigāh
Jī ḳhush to ho gayā magar aañsū nikal paḌe

Merā bachpan bhī saath le aayā
Gaañv se jab bhī aa gayā koī

Itnā to zindagī meñ kisī ke ḳhalal paḌe
Hañsne se ho sukūn na rone se kal paḌe

Jo ik ḳhudā nahīñ miltā to itnā mātam kyuuñ
Yahāñ to koī mirā ham-zabāñ nahīñ miltā
