Ek Aah-E-Zer-E-Lab Ke Gunahgar Ho Gae

ik āh-e-zer-e-lab ke gunahgār ho ga.e

ab ham bhī dāḳhil-e-saf-e-aġhyār ho ga.e

jis dard ko samajhte the ham un kā faiz-e-ḳhās

us dard ke bhī laakh ḳharīdār ho ga.e

jin hausloñ se merā junūñ mutma.in na thā

vo hausle zamāne ke me.aar ho ga.e

har va.ada jaise harf-e-ġhalat thā sarāb thā

ham to nisār-e-jur.at-e-inkār ho ga.e

sarsabz pattiyoñ kā lahū chuus chuus kar

kitne hī phuul raunaq-e-gulzār ho ga.e

‘zaidī’ ne taaza sher sunā.e ba-rañg-e-ḳhās

ham bhī ḳhudā-e-shoḳhī-e-afkār ho ga.e
