Jab Raqibon Ka Sitam Yaad Aaya

jab raqīboñ kā sitam yaad aayā

kuchh tumhārā bhī karam yaad aayā

kab hameñ hājat-e-parhez paḌī

ġham na khāyā thā ki sam yaad aayā

na likhā ḳhat ki ḳhat-e-peshānī

mujh ko hañgām-e-raqam yaad aayā

shola-e-zaḳhm se ai said-fagan

dāġh-e-āhū-e-haram yaad aayā

thahre kyā dil ki tirī shoḳhī se

iztirāb-e-pa-e-ham yaad aayā

ḳhūbi-e-baḳht ki paimān-e-adū

us ko hañgām-e-qasam yaad aayā

khul ga.ī ġhair se ulfat us kī

jām-e-mai se mujhe jam yaad aayā

vo mirā dil hai ki ḳhud-bīnoñ ko

dekh kar aa.ina kam yaad aayā

kis liye lutf kī bāteñ haiñ phir

kyā koī aur sitam yaad aayā

aise ḳhud-rafta ho ai ‘sheftā’ kyuuñ

kahīñ us shoḳh kā ram yaad aayā
