Dil Ki Duniya Dekh Kar Kyun Rang-E-Duniya Dekhte

dil kī duniyā dekh kar kyuuñ rañg-e-duniyā dekhte

dekhne vaalo nahīñ ham dekh kar kyā dekhte

jalva-gāh-e-dil meñ aa jaate vo be-parda agar

ham bhī rañg-e-be-ḳhudī ham rañg-e-mūsā dekhte

chaudhvīñ kā chāñd hotā hai daraḳhshāñ jis tarah

yuuñ tasavvur meñ kisī ko jagmagātā dekhte

ġharq ho jaate mohabbat meñ mohabbat-āshnā

sāhil-o-dariyā se bhī kar ke kinārā dekhte

jazb ho kar rah ga.e ḳhud hī nigāh-e-barq meñ

kyūñkar āñkhoñ se nasheman apnā jaltā dekhte

maiñ kabhī jalva huuñ terā tū kabhī partav mirā

umr guzrī jā rahī hai ye tamāshā dekhte

hote vo jalva-numā gul-paikar-o-gul-pairahan

ham unheñ ‘maḳhmūr’ firdaus-e-tamāshā dekhte
