Bas Ek Bar Kisi Ne Gale Lagaya Tha

bas ek baar kisi ne gale lagaya tha

phir us ke baad na main tha na mera saaya tha

gali men log bhi the mere us ke dushman log

vo sab pe hansta hua mere dil men aaya tha

us ek dasht men sau shahr ho gae abad

jahan kisi ne kabhi karvan lutaya tha

vo mujh se apna pata puchhne ko aa nikle

ki jin se main ne ḳhud apna suragh paaya tha

mire vajud se gulzar ho ke nikli hai

vo aag jis ne tira pairahan jalaya tha

mujhi ko tana-e-gharat-gari na de pyare

ye naqsh main ne tire haath se mitaya tha

usi ne ruup badal kar jaga diya aḳhir

jo zahr mujh pe kabhi niind ban ke chhaya tha

‘zafar’ ki ḳhaak men hai kis ki hasrat-e-tamir

ḳhayal-o-ḳhvab men kis ne ye ghar banaya tha
