Azal-Ta-Abad

ufuq-ta-ufuq ye dhundalke ka aalam

ye had-e-nazar tak

nam-alud si ret ka narm qalin ki jis par

samundar ki chanchal javan betiyon ne

kisi naqsh-e-pa ko bhi na chhoda

faza apne daman men bojhal ḳhamoshi samete hai lekin

machalti hui mast lahron ke honton pe naghma hai raqsan

ye naghma suna tha mujhe yaad aata nahin kab

magar haan

bas ehsas hai is qadar qarna-ha qarn pahle

ki ginna bhi chahe to koi jinhen gin na paae

bhala reg-e-sahil ke phaile hue nanhe zarron ko koi kahan tak gine

machalti hui mast lahron ko sahil se chhutne ka gham hi nahin hai

vida-e-sukun jaise koi sitam hi nahin hai

jise qarna-ha-qarn pahle bhi main ne suna tha

jise log suraj ke bujhne talak yunhi sunte rahenge
