Dur Se Aae The Saqi Sun Ke Mai-Khane Ko Hum

duur se aae the saaqi sun ke mai-ḳhane ko ham

bas taraste hi chale afsos paimane ko ham

mai bhi hai miina bhi hai saghar bhi hai saaqi nahin

dil men aata hai laga den aag mai-ḳhane ko ham

kyuun nahin leta hamari tu ḳhabar ai be-ḳhabar

kya tire ashiq hue the dard-o-gham khane ko ham

ham ko phansna tha qafas men kya gila sayyad ka

bas taraste hi rahe hain aab aur daane ko ham

taq-e-abru men sanam ke kya ḳhudai rah gai

ab to pujenge usi kafir ke but-ḳhane ko ham

baagh men lagta nahin sahra se ghabrata hai dil

ab kahan le ja ke baithen aise divane ko ham

kya hui taqsir ham se tu bata de ai ‘nazir’

taaki shadi-marg samjhen aise mar jaane ko ham
