Aankhon Mein Jo Ek KHwab Sa Hai

āñkhoñ meñ jo ek ḳhvāb sā hai

aalam kyā kyā dikhā rahā hai

aalam ik intizār kā hai

khultā nahīñ intizār kyā hai

qatra qatra jo pī chukā hai

dariyā dariyā pukārtā hai

kyā kah ga.ī zindagī kī aahaT

jo hai kisī soch meñ khaḌā hai

ai mauj-e-nasīm-e-sub.h-gāhī

har ġhunche kā dil dhaḌak rahā hai

tum aur zarā qarīb aa jaao

ḳhanjar rag-e-jāñ tak aa gayā hai

hai dīdanī rañg-e-rū-e-qātil

har zaḳhm javāb māñgtā hai

ai dasht-e-junūñ gavāh rahnā

kāñTe haiñ aur ik barahna-pā hai

āsār achchhe nahīñ shab-e-hijr

dil ko kuchh qarār sā hai

lafzoñ ko zabān mil rahī hai

shāyad ‘aḳhtar’ ġhazal-sarā hai
