Ho Chuki Bagh Mein Bahaar Afsos

ho chuki baagh men bahar afsos

aah ai bulbulo hazar afsos

qafila umr ka hai pa-ba-rikab

ziist ka kya hai e’tibar afsos

miri raton ko dekh sokhtagi

na kiya ek din bhi yaar afsos

shab se parvane ki lagan men shama

subh tak roi zaar zaar afsos

sakht be-tabi se kati kal raat

aaj bhi dil hai be-qarar afsos

khal-o-khat ko samajh ke dana-o-dam

murgh-e-dil ho gaya shikar afsos

aah dast-e-junun se ai naseh

hai gareban taar taar afsos

jaan honton pe aa gai hamdam

lekin ab tak phira na yaar afsos

umr ghaflat men kat gai hai ‘nasir’

aah afsos sad-hazar afsos
