Ek shaKHs Bhari-Bazm Mein Tanha Nazar Aaya

ik shaḳhs bharī-bazm meñ tanhā nazar aayā

apnā to nahīñ thā magar apnā nazar aayā

ham tishna-laboñ ne kabhī jā kar lab-e-dariy

dariyā ko bhī dekhā hai to pyāsā nazar aayā

shabnam-zada phūloñ ke sivā sehn-e-chaman meñ

ai ābla-pāyān-e-junūñ kyā nazar aayā

ai ghūmtī-phirtī huī lāsho ye batāo

insāñ koī is shahr meñ zinda nazar aayā

dekhā ki vahī sūrat-e-dīvār hai ‘nashtar’

jis ko kisī dīvār kā saayā nazar aayā
