KHamushi Jis Dam Faza Mein Raqs Farmane Lagi

ḳhāmushī jis dam fazā meñ raqs farmāne lagī

phuul par shabnam ke girne kī sadā aane lagī

mahv-e-hairat hai nigāh-e-shauq bhī ye dekh kar

un ke sar pe dhuup aa.ī aur ghaTā chhāne lagī

garmi-e-lab kī zarūrat jab paḌī ruḳhsār ko

chashm-e-pur-nam hasratoñ kī aag barsāne lagī

rakh diye taqdīr ke saare sitāre toḌ kar

jab haqīqat aa.ina qismat ko dikhlāne lagī

ratjagoñ ke dasht-e-vahshat meñ bhaTaktī rah ga.ī

niiñd bhī āñkhoñ ke dar pe aa ke pachhtāne lagī

is qadar tārīkiyāñ haiñ raushnī ke ruup meñ

tīrgī tīra-sifat hone pe sharmāne lagī

umr bhar kartī rahī manzil hamārī justujū

jab nazar ke sāmne aa.ī to katrāne lagī

din bhī saare ek jaise raat bhī yaksāñ ‘shakīl’

is tarah jiine se ab to ziist uktāne laggī
