KHushi Mili to Bahut Hi Udas baiThe Rahe

ḳhushī milī to bahut hī udaas baiThe rahe

chalā gayā vo to ham us ke paas baiThe rahe

jamāl-e-yār kī lazzat bayān kyā karte

nazar meñ shauq badan meñ hirās baiThe rahe

barahnagī hī kuchh aisī thī shahr-e-ġhurbat kī

qabā pahan ke bhī ham be-libās baiThe rahe

ye vāqi.a mirī āñkhoñ ke sāmne kā hai

sharāb naach rahī thī gilās baiThe rahe

isī ko husn-e-nazar kā kamāl kahte haiñ

tamām shab tire lazzat-shanās baiThe rahe

Thahar Thahar ke vo dariyā bulā rahā thā ‘qais’

ham apnī āñkhoñ meñ bhar bhar ke pyaas baiThe rahe
