Ek Jalwa Ek Naghma Ek Paimana Abhi

ek jalva ek naġhma ek paimāna abhī

zindagī kā ham-nashīñ mat chheḌ afsāna abhī

lazzat-e-sahbā se huuñ sāqī-e-begāna abhī

ho rahā hai band kyuuñ hastī kā mai-ḳhāna abhī

hairat-e-jalva mirī āñkhoñ kā parda ban ga.ī

huuñ sar-e-manzil magar manzil se begāna abhī

dekh to pī kar zarā sī aaj sahbā-e-ḳhudī

dekh bantā hai jahāñ ik ā.ina-ḳhāna abhī

khul gayā gar mai-kashoñ par dard-e-sahbā kā bharam

guuñj uTThegā navā-e-ġham se mai-ḳhāna abhī

sun rahe haiñ qissa-e-ādam azal se ham magar

hai vahī kaifiyyat-e-āġhāz-e-afsāna abhī

kāsa-e-dil ko mujalla aur kar luuñ to chalūñ

darḳhur-e-husn-e-azal kab hai ye nazrāna abhī

gesū-e-kaunanin to minnat-kash-e-shāna nahīñ

haañ magar uljhā huā hai zehn-e-farzāna abhī

jis qadar piitā gayā maiñ tishnagī baḌhtī ga.ī

bas yahī thī aarzū aur ek paimāna abhī

sidq-e-dil se sāqī-e-fitrat ko ik āvāz de

dekh aatā hai tire hāthoñ meñ paimāna abhī

fursat-e-nazzāra kab hāsil huī ‘farhat’ mujhe

huuñ asīr-e-kār-gāh-e-husn-e-jānāna abhī
