Chaak-Dil Ho Koi Ya KHak-Basar Kya Hoga

chāk-dil ho koī yā ḳhāk-basar kyā hogā

jis ko ehsās nahīñ us ko asar kyā hogā

hāsil-e-dard ba-juz dīda-e-tar kyā hogā

nahīñ mālūm yahāñ apnā guzar kyā hogā

pahle āġhāz-e-shab-e-ġham to samajh meñ aa.e

baad kī baat hai hangām-e-sahar kyā hogā

dekh kar rañg-e-jahān-e-guzarāñ hairāñ huuñ

jab ye aalam hai idhar kā to udhar kyā hogā

zindagī zauq-e-safar tark nahīñ kar saktī

soch kar kyā karūñ anjām-e-safar kyā hogā

aap to ḳhair se barsāt kā sūraj Thahre

ham ġharīboñ kī umīdoñ kā magar kyā hogā

is se to ruuh sañvartī hai nazar bantī hai

koī jalva bhī tirā sarf-e-nazar kyā hogā

duur tak vaqt kī rāhoñ meñ añdherā hai abhī

dil na sulge to charāġhoñ kā asar kyā hogā

zindagī aur sukūñ ek khulā dhokā hai

saañs jab tak hai kashākash se mafar kyā hogā

ḳhuun dil kā na ho ta.amīr meñ jab tak shāmil

mo’atabar koī bhī andāz-e-nazar kyā hogā

vaqt ke saath chale jaate haiñ jaane vaale

sochte rahte haiñ sab zindagī bhar kyā hogā

‘shauq’ āzār-talab fitrat-e-dil hai apnī

laakh ham chāheñge ārām magar kyā hogā
