Hai Mera Tar-E-Nafas Tar-E-Qafas

hai mira tar-e-nafas tar-e-qafas

rishte barpa hon giraftar-e-qafas

murgh-e-dil ko zab.h ai sayyad kar

aur taair hain sazavar-e-qafas

shauq bulbul ko asiri ka jo ho

ho zar-e-gul se ḳharidar-e-qafas

kyuun na main rangin-bayan huun qaid-e-ranj

murgh-e-ḳhush-ḳhvan hai sazavar-e-qafas

zindagi se qaid men bhi huun subuk

gaah bar-e-dam gah bar-e-qafas

mujh sa bulbul qaid ho kar chhut jaae

so gae kya baḳht-e-bedar-e-qafas

chashm-e-alam men asir-e-dam hai

ruuh hai tan men sazavar-e-qafas

phand kar aaya tha divar-e-chaman

phand ja.un kyuun ki divar-e-qafas

kya hai dagh-e-ḳhun-e-bulbul ki bahar

dekh ai sayyad gulzar-e-qafas

kab kisi bulbul ko milta hai gulab

ḳhun-e-dil piita hai bimar-e-qafas

zab.h karne ko utara naḳhl se

sar mira tha pa-e-raftar-e-qafas

puchhta hai kya dil-e-bulbul ka haal

dekh zalim jism-afgar-e-qafas

ashk ko hai dam-e-gesu ki talash

tifl hota hai ḳharidar-e-qafas

ta-ba-kai hoga asir-e-dam-e-fikr

‘arsh’ kar mauquf ashar-e-qafas
