Diye Jo Kar Diye Gul Ahd-E-Shab Mein Rahte Hue

diye jo kar diye gul ahd-e-shab meñ rahte hue

ye ehtijāj thā hadd-e-adab meñ rahte hue

har ek baat pe ashk har na.ī sahar se gurez

baras guzar ga.e kyuuñ aur kab meñ rahte hue

vo log kaun the kis āb-o-gil kā paikar the

jo phuul jaise the dasht-e-ġhazab meñ rahte hue

guzishtagān-e-mohabbat se kuchh hunar le kar

judā sabhī se rahe aur sab meñ rahte hue

kabhī jo yaad mujhe aa gayā mirā bachpan

to aañkh nam huī bazm-e-tarab meñ rahte hue

maiñ apnī zaat kī pahchān tak gañvā baiThā

ḳhayāl-e-izzat-e-nām-o-nasab meñ rahte hue

hadīs-e-dil bhī to maiñ likh nahīñ sakā ‘ashfāq’

hujūm-e-halqa-e-sher-o-adab meñ rahte hue
