Manzilon Ke Fasle diwar-O-dar Mein Rah Gae

manzilon ke fasle divar-o-dar men rah gae

kya safar tha mere saare ḳhvab ghar men rah gae

ab koi tasvir bhi apni jagah qaaem nahin

ab hava ke rang hi meri nazar men rah gae

jitne manzar the mire ham-rah ghar tak aae hain

aur pas-e-manzar savad-e-rah-guzar men rah gae

apne qadmon ke nishan bhi band kamron men rahe

taqchon par bhi diye ḳhali nagar men rah gae

kar gai hai naam se ghafil hamen apni shanaḳht

sirf avazon ke saae hi ḳhabar men rah gae

na-ḳhudaon ne palaT kar jaane kyuun dekha nahin

kashtiyon ke to kai taḳhte bhanvar men rah gae

kaisi kaisi ahaTen alfaz ka paikar banin

kaise kaise aks meri chashm-e-tar men rah gae

haath ki saari lakiren paanv ke talvon men thiin

aur mere ham-safar gard-e-safar men rah gae

kya hujum-e-rang ‘aḳhtar’ kya farogh-e-bu-e-gul

mausamon ke zaiqe buḌhe shajar men rah gae
