Kaun Kahta Hai Ki Mar Jaane Se Kuchh Hasil Nahin

kaun kahtā hai ki mar jaane se kuchh hāsil nahīñ

zindagī us kī hai mar jaanā jise mushkil nahīñ

haañ ye saarā khel parvānoñ kī jāñ-bāzī kā hai

sham-e-raushan par madār-e-girya-e-mahfil nahīñ

aam hī karnā paḌegā un ko faiz-e-iltifāt

ġhair hargiz iltifāt-e-ḳhās ke qābil nahīñ

muntaḳhab maiñ hī huā mashq-e-taġhāful ke liye

vo taġhāful-kesh merī yaad se ġhāfil nahīñ

halqa-e-girdāb hai gahvāra-e-ishrat mujhe

zauq-e-āsā.ish mirā minnat-kash-e-sāhil nahīñ

dekhiye kyā ho hamāre shauq-e-manzil kā ma.aal

paañv meñ tāqat ba-qadr-e-dūrī-e-manzil nahīñ

laakh dil qurbān us chashm-e-nadāmat-kesh par

ya.anī mujh ko ārzū-e-ḳhūñ-bahā-e-dil nahīñ

marja-e-barq-e-balā hai ai ‘vafā’ duniyā-e-ishq

hāsil-e-hasrat yahāñ juz hasrat-e-hāsil nahīñ
