Jaane Kya Hai Jise Dekho Wahi Dil-Gir Lage

jaane kyā hai jise dekho vahī dil-gīr lage

shahr kā shahr hī ab mo’taqid-e-mīr lage

sub.h āshufta-mizājoñ kī pareshāñ-e-suḳhanī

raat ik mār-e-siyah jaise ināñ-gīr lage

ab to jis aañkh ko dekho vahī pathrā.ī huī

ab to jis chehre ko āvāz do tasvīr lage

jaane kis shahr-e-tilismāt meñ aa niklā huuñ

apne qadmoñ kī sadā halqa-e-zanjīr lage

yahī maqdūr-e-masāfat hai ki ḳheme jal jaa.eñ

yahī maqsūm-e-safar hai ki koī tiir lage

zindagī bhar jinheñ jaañ kah ke pukārā gayā ‘shauq’

vahī siine se mire sūrat-e-shamshīr lage
