Main Jahan Bhi Hun Wahin Anjuman-Arai Hai

maiñ jahāñ bhī huuñ vahīñ anjuman-ārā.ī hai

ki mire saath mirā ālam-e-tanhā.ī hai

hasrat-e-āh bhī tauhīn-e-shakebā.ī hai

kyā mire dard kā mafhūm hī rusvā.ī hai

na tajallī na koī anjuman-ārā.ī hai

zindagī ek musalsal shab-e-tanhā.ī hai

maut hai qīmat-e-hastī koī in.aam nahīñ

jaan dī hai to hayāt-e-abadī paa.ī hai

DhūñDhte phirte haiñ yuuñ qāfile vaale mujh ko

jaise manzil mire hamrāh chalī aa.ī hai

sīna-e-gul meñ jo tūfāñ hai hameñ kyā mālūm

ham to itnā hī samajhte haiñ bahār aa.ī hai

rāz-e-nairang-e-chaman koī na samjhā ‘shāhid’

maut phūloñ kī ba-unvān-e-bahār aa.ī he
