Lekin Badi Der Ho Chuki Thi

is umr ke baad us ko dekha!

ankhon men saval the hazaron

honton pe magar vahi tabassum!

chehre pe likhi hui udasi

lahje men magar bala ka thahrao

avaz men gunjti judai

banhen thiin magar visal-e-saman!

simti hui us ke bazuon men

ta-der main sochti rahi thi

kis abr-e-gurez-pa ki ḳhatir

main kaise shajar se kat gai thi

kis chhanv ko tark kar diya tha

main us ke gale lagi hui thi

vo ponchh raha tha mire aansu

lekin badi der ho chuki thii!
