paikar se husn jhankte bola ki aaiye

paikar se husn jhāñkte bolā ki aa.iye

dariyā ke saath aap bhī sahrā banā.iye

phir yuuñ huā ham us meñ kahīñ mahv ho ga.e

us ne kahā thā vaqt ko sakte meñ lā.iye

ai sākinān-e-chashm chaleñ sulh kījiye

uThiye hamāre ḳhvāb ko siine lagā.iye

is kāsa-e-hurūf kī suntā nahīñ koī

dast-e-duā sameTiye aur lauT jā.iye

vaqt-e-safar ḳhamosh haiñ bosa-kinān-e-lab

un se kalām kījiye un ko rulā.iye

‘ārish’ kisī ne chāñd banānā hai chaak par

apne badan kī miTTī zarā gūñdh lā.iye
