Apna chhoDa Hua Ghar Yaad Aaya

apnā chhoḌā huā ghar yaad aayā

ḳhuld meñ ḳhuld-nazar yaad aayā

kitnī sadiyoñ kī thakan hai jaañ par

ek lamhe kā safar yaad aayā

jis ke saa.e ne jalāyā mujh ko

phir vo sarsabz shajar yaad aayā

haath meñ chāñd kī miTTī le kar

kitne firqoñ kā safar yaad aayā

ham hue apnī nazar meñ jhūTe

us kā paimān-e-nazar yaad aayā

us se ab ḳhvāb kā rishta bhī ġhalat

sar jhaTak de vo agar yaad aayā

kyā na sābit thī mirī ḳhush-hunarī

kyuuñ tirā husn-e-nazar yaad aayā

phir rag-o-pai kī fazā hai bojhal

phir bagūloñ kā safar yaad aayā

muddatoñ jis kī parastish kī thī

phir vo ābād khañDar yaad aayā

the unhī āñkhoñ meñ sapne kitne

apnā āġhāz-e-safar yaad aayā

raat yuuñ ghaas kī ḳhushbū lipTī

niiñd hī aa.ī na ghar yaad aayā

jam ga.e miil ke patthar kī tarah

kyā sar-e-rāhguzar yaad aayā

phir hai ‘shāhīn’ ġhazal rāz-e-chaman

phir koī soḳhta-par yaad aayā
