Jo Dil Mein khaTakti Hai Kabhi Kah Bhi Sakoge

jo dil meñ khaTaktī hai kabhī kah bhī sakoge

yā umr bhar aise hī pareshān phiroge

patthar kī hai dīvār to sar phoḌnā sīkho

ye haal rahegā to jiyoge na maroge

tūfān uThāoge kabhī apne jahāñ meñ

yā aañkh ke paanī hī ko sailāb kahoge

so.e ho añdhere meñ charāġhoñ ko bujhā kar

aa.egā nazar ḳhaak agar jaag uThoge

apnī hī haqīqat ko na pahchānñe vaalo

tum parda-e-aflāk ko kyā chaak karoge

ai barq kī mānind guzarte hue lamho

kyā aañkh jhapakne kī bhī mohlat nahīñ doge

raushan bhī karoge kabhī tārīki-e-shab ko

yā sham.a kī mānind pighalte hī rahoge

arzāñ hai bahut ḳhuun farozāñ hai bahut shaam

kyā apnī hī mahfil meñ charāġhāñ na karoge

maanā ki kaThin raah hai dushvār safar hai

kyā ek qadam bhī na mire saath chaloge

guzre hue lamhe kī vo be-nām kasak huuñ

tum jis kī tamannā meñ pareshān phiroge

chāhoge nishāñ bhī na rahe merā jahāñ meñ

gar zikr karoge to mirā naam na loge

ye gard-e-safar haal vo kar degī ki ‘shahzād’

tum apnī bhī sūrat ko na pahchān sakoge
