KHwahish-E-Qatl-E-Am Karne Lage

ḳhvāhish-e-qatl-e-ām karne lage

apnā jiinā harām karne lage

manzileñ duur hī rahīñ un se

jo musāfir qayām karne lage

vo ye samjhe ki kuchh zarūrat hai

ham unheñ jab salām karne lage

in añdheroñ ke hausle dekho

raushnī zer-e-dām karne lage

ishq chhūTā to hosh meñ aa.e

ham bhī ab kām-dhām karne lage

hosh uḌne lage haiñ ḳhāroñ ke

phuul jab se kalām karne lage

zindagī kī salīb TuuT ga.ī

maut kā intizām karne lage

zindagī ke udaas dariyā meñ

kuchh samundar qayām karne lage

ye hai me.arāj-e-tishnagī ‘shākir’

chaḌhte dariyā salām karne lage
