Aankh Uthai Nahin Wo Samne Sau Bar Hue

aankh utha.i nahin vo samne sau baar hue

hijr men aise faramush-gar-e-didar hue

kamil us firqa-e-zuhhad men utha na koi

kuchh hue to yahi rindan-e-qadah ḳhvar hue

na uthi baith ke ḳhaak apni tire kuche men

ham na yaan dosh-e-hava ke bhi kabhi yaar hue

sub.h le aa.ina us but ko dikhaya ham ne

raat aghyar se milne ke jo inkar hue

kuchh taajjub nahin gar ab ke falak tuut pade

aaj naale jo koi aur bhi do-char hue

misr men aaj tujhe dekh ke pachhtae hain

sada-lauhi se jo yusuf ke ḳharidar hue

mubtazil main hi to huun aap jo kahiye sach hai

raat jhagde to mujhi par sar-e-bazar hue

ye hain ‘azurda’ jo kahte hue shaian-allah

aaj daryuza-gar-e-ḳhana-e-ḳhummar hue
