Jaan-Sapari Ke Bhi Arman Zindagi Ki Aas Bhi

jan-sapari ke bhi arman zindagi ki aas bhi

hifz-e-namus-e-alam bhi nish-e-gham ka paas bhi

ḳhaak dar-bar hi sahi main ḳhaak bhi vo ḳhaak hai

jis men mere zaḳhm-e-dil ki bu bhi hai aur baas bhi

kitne daur-e-charḳh un ankhon ne dekhe kuchh na puchh

miT chuka hai vaqt ki raftar ka ehsas bhi

haae vo ik nashtar-agin neshtar-afroz yaad

jis ke aage hech apni burrish-e-infas bhi

ham na the kuchh ḳhud hi us saude pe raazi varna yuun

raas aane ko ye duniya aa hi jaati raas bhi

ḳhud ko ai dil yas-e-kamil ke havale yuun na kar

jhankti hai zehn ke ghurfe se koi aas bhi

kaun us vaadi se uchhla ta-sar-e-arsh-e-barin

gum hain jis vaadi men ‘aḳhtar’ ḳhizr bhi ilyas bhi
