Chand Hi Nikla Na Baadal Hi Chhama-Chham Barsa

chāñd hī niklā na bādal hī chhamā-chham barsā

raat dil par ġham-e-dil sūrat-e-shabnam barsā

jaltī jaatī haiñ jaḌeñ sūkhte jaate haiñ shajar

ho jo taufīq to aañsū hī koī dam barsā

mere armān the barsāt ke bādal kī tarah

ġhunche shākī haiñ ki ye abr bahut kam barsā

pai-ba-pai aa.e sajal tāroñ ke mānind ḳhayāl

merī tanhā.ī pe shab husn jhamā-jham barsā

kitne nā-paid ujāloñ se kiyā hai ābād

vo añdherā jo mirī āñkhoñ pe paiham barsā

sard jhoñkoñ ne kahī suunī rutoñ se kyā baat

kin tamannāoñ kā ḳhuuñ shāḳhoñ se tham tham barsā

qarya qarya thī ‘ziyā’ hasrat-e-ābādī-e-dil

qarya qarya vahī vīrānī kā aalam barsā
