Dil Jahan Bhi Duba Hai Unki Yaad Aai Hai

dil jahāñ bhī Duubā hai un kī yaad aa.ī hai

haa.e kyā sukūñ-parvar dard-e-āshnā.ī hai

tum sarāb ban ban kar apnī chhab dikhāte ho

tishna-lab musāfir kī jaan par ban aa.ī hai

ye kashākash-e-hastī kitnī duur le aa.ī

din kahāñ guzārā hai shab kahāñ gañvā.ī hai

zindagī tirī ḳhātir tere dard-mandoñ ne

ik jahān kī tohmat apne sar uThā.ī hai

roz-o-shab mirī ḳhātir jis kā dil dhaḌaktā thā

ab ye haal hai us kī yaad bhī parā.ī hai

maiñ sadā-e-gum-gashta maiñ adā-e-nā-zebā

merā naam kitnoñ ko vaj.h-e-ḳhud-numā.ī hai

ḳhvāb ho chuke ‘shāhīñ’ saare vāqiye phir bhī

shahr shahr meñ ab tak dāstāñ-sarā.ī hai
