Main Iztirab Mein Hun Sham Se Sahar Ke Liye

main iztirab men huun shaam se sahar ke liye

koi charagh ata kar de rat-bhar ke liye

ḳhuda bachae tumhen aisi-vaisi nazron se

gale men daal lo ta.aviz tum nazar ke liye

qafas-nasib hain na-ashna-e-azadi

ye qaid ek chunauti hai bal-o-par ke liye

nigah-e-barq men vo ḳhaar se khaTakne lage

jo tinke jam.a kiye ham ne apne ghar ke liye

masih-e-vaqt to aisi nafas sahi lekin

ilaaj hai koi zaḳhm-e-dil-o-jigar ke liye

tumhare husn-o-ada ke hamin shikar nahin

na jaane kitnon ke dil tum ne ban-sanvar ke liye

tamam-umr andhere men kaT gai yarab

koi charagh ata kar hamare ghar ke liye

kisi ke samne sar ḳham karun main kyuun ‘ajiz’

bani hai meri jabin un ke sang-e-dar ke liye
