Dil Kyun Tapan Hai Kucha-E-Dildar Dekh Kar

dil kyuuñ tapāñ hai kūcha-e-dildār dekh kar

aage baḌhūñgā charḳh kī raftār dekh kar

ḳhush ho sakā na hāl-e-dil-e-zār dekh kar

jaltā hai ġhair merī shab-e-tār dekh kar

samjhe na aap dīda-e-ḳhūñ-bār dekh kar

kyā kījiyegā hāl-e-dil-e-zār dekh kar

sayyād dāġh-e-dil na samajhnā ki chalte vaqt

gulshan ke phuul laayā huuñ do-chār dekh kar

tai kar ke aaj ḳhāna-badoshī kī manzileñ

baiThā huuñ us kā sāya-e-dīvār dekh kar

kuchh kuchh zamāna jaan gayā kār-e-husn-o-ishq

mansūr ko jahān meñ sardār dekh kar

vaqf-e-zabān-e-ahl-e-hasad hai lahū mirā

ḳhush ho rahā huuñ vādī-e-pur-ḳhār dekh kar

patthar nahīñ ki tuur ke daur āzmā.e jaa.eñ

ai barq-e-husn hāl-e-dil-e-zār dekh kar

ab dahr rū-shanā-o-vafā-o-jafā huā

mere gale par aap kī talvār dekh kar

mahshar meñ koī pūchhne vaalā to mil gayā

rahmat baḌhī hai mujh ko gunahgār dekh kar

hai raushnī qafas meñ magar sūjhtā nahīñ

abr-e-siyāh jānib-e-gul-zār dekh kar

rotā huuñ shām-e-ġham meñ dil-e-gum-shuda ko maiñ

yaad aa rahī hai sham-e-shab-tār dekh kar

chaliye magar ḳhayāl rahe umr-e-dahr kā

tham jaa.e āsmāñ na ye raftār dekh kar

rotā huuñ vaqt-e-nāla guzarne se aur bhī

shab ko tulū-e-sub.h ke āsār dekh kar

bas ek din kī baat hai ai ishq-e-lā-zavāl

maiñ kyā karūñgā misr kā bāzār dekh kar

kyā thā ki aise vaqt meñ sāhab-dilān-e-hashr

dekhā kiye mujhe tirī talvār dekh kar

sad-chāk dil kā zikr na bhūlā maiñ der meñ

tasbīh yaad aa ga.ī zunnār dekh kar

TuuTe haiñ shīsha-hā-e-dil itne ki ahl-e-dard

rakhte haiñ paañv ḳhaak pe sau baar dekh kar

sayyād kis jagah pe qafas hai ki dil mirā

dar ho rahā hai baaġh kī dīvār dekh kar

in dostoñ meñ vo na hoñ yārab jo vaqt-e-dīd

bīmār ho ga.e ruḳh-e-bīmār dekh kar

vo kyā samajh sakeñge nasheb-o-farāz-e-dahr

jo chal rahe haiñ raah ko hamvār dekh kar

kahte haiñ dil-lagī mirī shām-e-firāq ko

achchhā yūñhī sahī magar ik baar dekh kar

‘sāqib’ ajab nahīñ ki sar-e-tūr-e-imtihāñ

ġhash dil ko aa.e jalva-e-ash.ār dekh kar
