Mila-Dila Sahi Ek KHushk Haar Baqi Hai

milā-dilā sahī ik ḳhushk haar baaqī hai

abhī bahār-e-shikast-e-bahār baaqī hai

nazar sañvār chukī kitne ā.ina-ḳhāne

usī tarah havas-e-dīd-e-yār baaqī hai

bichhaunā kāñToñ kā hai phir bhī aa.ī jaatī hai niiñd

abhī tasavvur-e-zānū-e-yār baaqī hai

shikast-e-ahd ke kyuuñ hoñ na silsile qaa.em

ik aasrā pas-e-har-e’tibār baaqī hai

qafas meñ fursat-e-fikr-e-chaman-tarāz kahāñ

yahī bahut hai ḳhayāl-e-bahār baaqī hai

vo āñkheñ bhī khulīñ badlī jo vaqt ne karvaT

idhar nahīñ ab idhar intizār baaqī hai

ye rūh-o-tan kī judā.ī kā marsiya kab tak

vahī do-rañgī-e-lail-o-nahār baaqī hai

chaman to nīm-nigāhī ne kar diyā taqsīm

ḳhudā-e-vaqt koī aur vaar baaqī hai

‘sirāj’ ab bhī ye aqlīm-e-rañg-o-bū hai bahut

luTī-luTā.ī huī jo bahār baaqī hai
