Honton Pe Qarz-e-Harf-e-Wafa Umr Bhar Raha

honTon pe qarz-e-harf-e-vafa umr bhar raha

maqruz tha so chup ki sada umr bhar raha

kuchh darguzar ki un ko bhi aadat na thi kabhi

kuchh main bhi apni zid pe uḌa umr bhar raha

vo tajrabe hue ki mire ḳhuun ki ḳhair ho

yaaro main apne ghar se juda umr bhar raha

mausam ka habs shab ki siyahi fasil-e-shahr

mujrim tha sar jhukae khaḌa umr bhar raha

sub.h o masa ki gardish-e-paiham ke bavajud

main darmiyan-e-sub.h-o-masa umr bhar raha

in barishon men kaun bahe ḳhar-o-ḳhas ke saath

suraj ki le ke sar pe rida umr bhar raha

hathon se oT ki to sabhi ungliyan jalin

phir bhi hava ki zad pe diya umr bhar raha

ik ḳhuun ki ḳhalij mire samne rahi

aur mere pichhe saaya mira umr bhar raha

‘aḳhtar’ ye jangalon men usi ke nishan hain

jo ḳhaar ḳhaar abla-pa umr bhar raha
