Hai Gulu-Gir Bahut Raat Ki Pahnai Bhi

hai gulū-gīr bahut raat kī pahnā.ī bhī

terā ġham bhī hai mujhe aur ġham-e-tanhā.ī bhī

dasht-e-vahshat meñ ba-juz-reg-e-ravāñ koī nahīñ

aaj kal shahr meñ hai lāla-e-sahrā.ī bhī

maiñ zamāne meñ tirā ġham huuñ ba-unvān-e-vafā

zindagī merī sahī hai tirī rusvā.ī bhī

aaj tū ne bhī mire haal se muñh pher liyā

aaj nam-nāk huī chashm-e-tamāshā.ī bhī

ab khulā hai ki tirā husn-e-taġhāful thā karam

garche kuchh der tabī.at mirī ghabrā.ī bhī

juz-ġham-e-dahr mujhe koī na pahchān sakā

tire kūche meñ tirī yaad mujhe laa.ī bhī

un kī mahfil meñ ‘zafar’ log mujhe chāhte haiñ

vo jo kal kahte the dīvāna bhī saudā.ī bhī
