Bahr-E-Hasti Mein Sohbat-E-Ahbab

bahr-e-hasti men sohbat-e-ahbab

yuun hai jaise baru-e-ab-e-habab

gardish-e-asman men ham kya hain

par-e-kahe miyana-e-gardab

bada-e-nab kya hai ḳhun-e-jigar

zardi-e-rang hai shab-e-mahtab

jis ko raqs-o-surud kahte hain

vo bhi hai ik hava-e-ḳhana-ḳharab

umr kahte hain jis ko vo kya hai

misl-e-tahrir mauj-e-naqsh-bar-ab

jism kya ruuh ki hai jaula-nigah

ruuh kya ik savar-e-pa-ba-rikab

husn aur ishq kya hain ye bhi hain

ḳhatfa-e-barq-o-qatra-e-simab

zindagani-o-marg bhi kya hain

ek misl-e-ḳhayal-o-digar-e-ḳhvab

fursat-e-umr qatra-e-shabnam

vasl-e-mahbub gauhar-e-nayab

kyuun na ishrat do-chand ho jo hai

yaar mah-chehra aur shab-e-mahtab

sab kitabon ke khul gae maani

jab se dekhi ‘nazir’ dil ki kitab
