Kabhi paDho to Mujhe Harf-E-Motabar Ki Tarah

kabhī paḌho to mujhe harf-e-mo’tabar kī tarah

ye kyā ki paḌhte ho farsūda sī ḳhabar kī tarah

qalam to karte ho sar ko mire magar sun lo

maiñ reg-zār-e-vafā meñ huuñ ek shajar kī tarah

udāsī khol ke baal apnā so rahī hai yahāñ

ki jaise shahar meñ har ghar hai mere ghar kī tarah

hamāre zauq-e-parastish ko tum duā.eñ do

chamak rahe haiñ ye patthar jo ab guhar kī tarah

mashām-e-jāñ meñ abhī tak hai us badan kī baas

khilā thā raat jo ik ġhuncha-e-sahar kī tarah

har ek sañg pata pūchhtā hai ghar kā mire

nahīñ hai kyā koī sar aur mere sar kī tarah

navāh-e-jāñ meñ ujāloñ kā raqs hai ‘shiblī’

ye kaun aayā dabe paañv yuuñ sahar kī tarah
