Bikhri Thi Har Samt Jawani Raat Ghaneri Hone Tak

bikhrī thī har samt javānī raat ghanerī hone tak

lekin maiñ ne dil kī na maanī raat ghanerī hone tak

dard kā dariyā baḌhte baḌhte siine tak aa pahuñchā hai

aur chaḌhegā thoḌā paanī raat ghanerī hone tak

aag pe chalnā qismat meñ hai barf pe ruknā majbūrī

kaun sunegā apnī kahānī raat ghanerī hone tak

us ke binā ye gulshan bhī ab sahrā jaisā lagtā hai

lagtā hai sab kuchh be-ma.anī raat ghanerī hone tak

ḳhūn-e-jigar se ham ko charāġhāñ karnā hai so karte haiñ

apnī hai ye riit purānī raat ghanerī hone tak

jin hoñToñ ne pyāse rah kar ham ko apne jaam diye

yaad karo un kī qurbānī raat ghanerī hone tak

dil meñ apne zaḳhm-e-tamannā āñkhoñ meñ kuchh ḳhvāb liye

barsoñ ham ne ḳhaak hai chhānī raat ghanerī hone tak
