Mujh Tak Nigah Aai Jo Wapas palaT Gai

mujh tak nigāh aa.ī jo vāpas palaT ga.ī

phailā jo merā shahr to pahchān ghaT ga.ī

maiñ chup rahā to aañkh se aañsū ubal paḌe

jab bolne lagā mirī āvāz phaT ga.ī

is kā nahīñ hai rañj ki taqsīm ghar huā

phūloñ bharī jo bel thī āñgan meñ kaT ga.ī

jiine kī ḳhvāhishoñ ne sabhī zaḳhm bhar diye

ā.ankhoñ se ashk mez se tasvīr haT ga.ī

dast-e-bahār-e-rañg ne ḳhushbū bikherī thī

phir apne aap phuul se titlī lipaT ga.ī

manzar jo chāhtā huuñ vahī dekhtā huuñ maiñ

maiñ kyā karūñgā ‘shāz’ jo ye dhund chhaT ga.ī
