KHayal Hai Ki Haqiqat Hai Ya Fasana Hai

ḳhayāl hai ki haqīqat hai yā fasāna hai

vo nīstī ho ki hastī tilism-ḳhāna hai

nazar kā farq man-o-tū kā farq hai shāyad

vahī sarāb vahī ganj-e-āb-o-dāna hai

jo Thahr jaa.e to hai tausan-e-ḳhayāl koī

jo rau meñ ho to ye sūrat-gar-e-zamāna hai

fasād-e-hirs nahīñ qasr-e-shahr tak mahdūd

ki is lapeT meñ aalam kā kārḳhāna hai

mujhe to yuuñ bhī ḳharāb-e-shabāb honā thā

tire jamāl kā jaadū to ik bahāna hai

diloñ kā rabt nahīñ be-takallufī hai ye

kabhī kabhī kī mulāqāt dostāna hai
