Dar-E-Mai-Kada Hai Khula Hua Sar-E-charKH Aaj ghaTa Bhi Hai

dar-e-mai-kada hai khulā huā sar-e-charḳh aaj ghaTā bhī hai

chale daur-e-sāqī-e-dilrubā ki chaman meñ raqs-e-sabā bhī hai

ġham-e-zindagī sahī jāñ-gusil magar is se koī bachā bhī hai

yahī ġham hai rāz-e-nashāt-e-dil yahī zindagī kā mazā bhī hai

yahī zaḳhm-e-dil jo nasīb hai yahī soz-e-dil kā naqīb hai

ye mire ḳhulūs kā rañg hai kisī nāznīñ kī atā bhī hai

hai mirī nigāh meñ sirf tū kisī aur kī nahīñ justujū

tire iltifāt kī aarzū tirī be-ruḳhī kā gilā bhī hai

mujhe kyā uḌā.eñge bāl-o-par ki qafas meñ umr huī basar

maiñ rihā huā bhī kabhī agar to rihā.ī merī sazā bhī hai

mirī dāstāñ bhī ajiib hai ye kisī kisī kā nasīb hai

kahīñ zikr-e-bād-e-sumūm hai kahīñ zikr-e-mauj-e-sabā bhī hai

na tū uzv-e-jāh pe faḳhr kar ki ye zindagī to hai ik safar

tujhe kyā ḳhabar are be-ḳhabar dabe paañv pīchhe qazā bhī hai

jo bahār fasl-e-shabāb thī vo misāl-e-abr guzar ga.ī

nahīñ zindagī meñ koī ḳhushī ki ḳhilāf mere havā bhī hai

vo ba-zo.am-e-husn haiñ ḳhud-nigar to mujhe bhī naaz hai ishq par

maiñ niyāz-mand sahī magar mujhe ‘soz’ pās-e-anā bhī hai
