Dastan-E-Zindagi Likhte Magar Rahne Diya

dastan-e-zindagi likhte magar rahne diya

us ke har kirdar ko bas mo’atabar rahne diya

koi manzil koi mafruza na tha pesh-e-nazar

zer-e-pa ik rah-guzar thi rahguzar rahne diya

dil ke har mausam ne baḳhshi daulat-e-ehsas-o-dard

sirf is sarmae ko zad-e-safar rahne diya

saath ik ḳhush-bash lahja mahfilon men le ke aae

dil ki virani ko tanha apne ghar rahne diya

shor karti bhagti duniya men shamil bhi rahe

ek sur maddham sa dil ke saaz par rahne diya

vaqt ke bahte hue dariya pe kashti Daal kar

saare andeshon se ḳhud ko be-ḳhabar rahne diya

ḳhud-gharaz thoda sa hona bhi zaruri tha magar

tajrabon se siikh kar bhi ye hunar rahne diya

saari duniya ke liye har shab dua-e-ḳhair ki

zikr apni ḳhvahishon ka muḳhtasar rahne diya

kyuun koi dekhe hamare dil ki saari mumlikat

ik jhalak dikhlai hai aur beshtar rahne diya

kaun daman-gir hai aksar ye karta hai saval

kar to saktin thiin bahut kuchh tum magar rahne diya
