Jagte Din Ki Gali Mein Raat Aankhen Mal Rahi Hai

jagte din ki gali men raat ankhen mal rahi hai

vaqt guzra ja raha hai dhuup chhat se tal rahi hai

ik libas-e-faḳhira hai surḳh gharqabi mahal hai

kuchh purani ho gai hai par kahani chal rahi hai

ik sitara saaz ankhon ke kinare bas raha hai

ik mohabbat naam ki ladki badan men pal rahi hai

paas tha khoya nahin hai jo na tha ab bhi nahin hai

umr bhar phir kyuun tabiat muztarib be-kal rahi hai

aana jaana saans ka kya vasl se mashrut hai

tu chale to tham rahi hai tu ruke to chal rahi hai

zard-ru vahshat-zada bhatki hui viran si

zindagi ik shaam hai aur shaam ban men Dhal rahi hai
