Dasht-E-Ghurbat Hai to Wo Kyun Hain KHafa Humse Bahut

dasht-e-ġhurbat hai to vo kyuuñ haiñ ḳhafā ham se bahut

ham dukhī baiThe haiñ lag chal na sabā ham se bahut

kyā hai dāman meñ ba-juz gard-e-mah-o-sāl-e-umīd

kyuuñ ulajhtī hai zamāne kī havā ham se bahut

ab ham iz.hār-e-alam karne lage haiñ sab se

ab uThā.ī nahīñ jaatī hai jafā ham se bahut

kaun mausam hai ki patthar se lahū ristā hai

ḳhūñ-bahā māñge hai ab dil kī sadā ham se bahut

dād-e-shorīda-sarī paa.e jo sar se guzre

duur bhāge hai abas mauj-e-balā ham se bahut

kar to deñ qissa-e-daurāñ meñ tire ġham kā bayāñ

par lahū māñge hai ye fikr-e-rasā ham se bahut

chaḌhte sūraj ke pujārī vahī nikle jo ‘shahāb’

karte the tazkira-e-sidq-o-safā ham se bahut
