Phir Talash-E-Rahat Mein Dard Ka Payam Aaya

phir talāsh-e-rāhat meñ dard kā payām aayā

ham jahāñ se guzre the phir vahī maqām aayā

tere ġham kī rāhoñ meñ vo bhī ik maqām aayā

maut kī tamannā thī maut kā salām aayā

shab guzārne vaalo hāsil-e-sahar kyā thā

ik payām-e-bedārī vo bhī nā-tamām aayā

yuuñ uruuj par aa.ī dāstāñ mohabbat kī

dil kā zikr chheḌā thā lab pe un kā naam aayā

ham hī rah ga.e pyāse varna bazm-e-sāqī meñ

jis taraf na thā koī us taraf bhī jaam aayā

rafta rafta yaad un kī ban ga.ī ġham-e-duniyā

zindagī kā sarmāya zindagī ke kaam aayā

fasl-e-gul mubārak ho ye bhī dekhte rahiye

kis ne toḌ dī zanjīr kaun zer-e-dām aayā

mere jaam se ‘shāhid’ mai kabhī na chhalkī thī

mai-kashoñ kī mahfil meñ kaun tishna-kām aayā
