Aur Kya Zindagi Rah Gai

aur kyā zindagī rah ga.ī

ik musalsal kamī rah ga.ī

vaqt phir darmiyāñ aa gayā

baat phir an-kahī rah ga.ī

paas jañgal koī jal gayā

raakh har-sū jamī rah ga.ī

zar kā īñdhan banī fikr-e-nau

shā.irī adh-marī rah ga.ī

maiñ na royā na khul kar hañsā

har nafas tishnagī rah ga.ī

tum na aa.e mirī zindagī

raah taktī huī rah ga.ī

paas dariyā-dilī rakh liyā

laakh tishna-labī rah ga.ī

phir fanā kā payām aa gayā

ek ummīd thī rah ga.ī

aap ‘ahmad’ kahāñ rah ga.e

aur kahāñ zindagī rah ga.ī
