Bahaaron Se Khizan Tak Yunhi Sair-e-Gulistan Kar Ke

baharon se ḳhizan tak yunhi sair-e-gulistan kar ke

rafu karte rahe ham jeb-o-dastan dhajjiyan kar ke

milega kya tujhe sayyad mujh ko be-zaban kar ke

sukun-e-qalb milta hai mujhe ah-o-fughan kar ke

chaman ko raushni di nazr-e-atish ashiyan kar ke

kiya ye tajraba ham ne ghar apna raegan kar ke

haqiqat men karam tum ne kiya hai haq-shanason par

har ik ko vaqif-e-rasm-e-jabin-o-astan kar ke

uTha paae na ham lutf-e-baharan mausam-e-gul men

kahan gum ho gai parvaz qaid-e-ashiyan kar ke

ab aisi zindagi se maut aa jaati to behtar tha

hui taz.hik apni dastan-e-dil bayan kar ke

agar tafsil se kahta to vo shayad samajh jaate

main ab pachhta raha huun iḳhtisar-e-dastan kar ke

bhaTakte rahte yunhi aur na paate umr-bhar manzil

baḌa ehsan kiya tum ne sharik-e-karvan kar ke

samajh men aa gai un ki ḳhas-o-ḳhashak ki azmat

gai hain bijliyan aḳhir tavaf-e-ashiyan kar ke

zahe mashq-e-tasavvur ham unhen dekha hi karte hain

chhupen chahe jahan vo parda-ha-e-darmiyan kar ke

samundar phir hilore lega tahzib-o-tamaddun ka

zara dekho to ‘ajiz’ shamil-e-urdu-zaban kar ke
