Ghaza to Tera Utar Gaya Tha

ġhāza to tirā utar gayā thā

maiñ dekh ke ḳhud ko Dar gayā thā

is shahr meñ rāste kā patthar

maiñ jañgaloñ se guzar gayā thā

tahrīr-e-jabīñ miTī huī thī

taqdīr kā zaḳhm bhar gayā thā

be-nūr thī jhiil bhī kañval se

sūraj bhī ḳhalā meñ mar gayā thā

ehsās shabāb ġham mohabbat

ek ek nasha utar gayā thā

dil ko vo sukūñ milā tire paas

jaise maiñ nagar nagar gayā thā

kyā chiiz thī bād-e-sub.h-gāhī

rū-e-gul-e-tar nikhar gayā thā

hamrāh the an-ginat zamāne

maiñ dasht se apne ghar gayā thā

nazroñ kā milāp kaun bhūle

ik sāneha sā guzar gayā thā

iqrār-e-vafā kiyā thā us ne

maiñ fart-e-ḳhushī se mar gayā thā

‘siddīq’ chalī thī tez āñdhī

miTTī kā badan bikhar gayā thā
