Baam Par Aao Kabhi Mah-E-daraKHshan Ki Tarah

baam par aao kabhī māh-e-daraḳhshāñ kī tarah

chhup ke kyā jalnā charāġh-e-tah-e-dāmāñ kī tarah

umr bhar vo dar-o-dīvār ke pāband rahe

ghar se nikle hī nahīñ haiñ mire armāñ kī tarah

ab use dekhūñ to pahchān bhī shāyad na sakūñ

dil mirā TuuT gayā yaar ke paimāñ kī tarah

dasht kī raah to lī ālam-e-vahshat meñ magar

dasht bhī niklā mire ḳhāna-e-vīrāñ kī tarah

qais ko dekhā thā maiñ ne sar-e-sahrā ik din

sar se pā tak thā faqat dīda-e-hairāñ kī tarah

nasha-e-mai ho ki husn-e-ruḳh-e-jānāñ ‘ārif’

sar chaḌhānā na kisī ko kabhī ehsāñ kī tarah
