Aap Bik Jae Koi Aisa KHaridar Na Tha

aap bik jaa.e koī aisā ḳharīdār na thā

mere yūsuf ke liye misr kā bāzār na thā

ḳhuuñ huā ashk banā aur mizha se Tapkā

dil ki lazzat-kash-e-rañgīnī-e-inkār na thā

mubtalā huuñ tirā jab se sanam-e-kufr-farosh

zulf-e-tā-dosh na thī dosh pe zunnār na thā

qissa-e-tūr kabhī gosh-e-haqīqat se suno

shauq-e-dīdār ba-juz hasrat-e-dīdār na thā

ġhāza-e-chehra-e-gul naqsh-o-nigār-e-hastī

koī qatra dil-e-ḳhūñ-gashta kā bekār na thā

le ga.ī vahshat-e-dil kal mujhe us aalam meñ

besh-az-nuqta jahāñ gumbad-e-dvvār na thā

lazzat-e-dard se vāqif thā dil-e-zār ‘asar’

varna mar jaanā tire hijr meñ dushvār na thā
