Phir Usi Shahr Ka Fasana chheD

phir usī shahr kā fasāna chheḌ

mutriba tarz-e-āshiqāna chheḌ

sāz-e-dil se uThā thā jo ik baar

phir vahī raag vālihāna chheḌ

ghar hai tārīk yūrish-e-ġham se

aaj ik ātishīñ tarāna chheḌ

phir jahāñ dilkashī se hai mahrūm

zulf-e-hastī ko misl-e-shāna chheḌ

bazm ḳhauf-e-fanā se hai be-dam

kuchh ba-andāz-e-jāvedāna chheḌ

aaj har shai se bad-gumāñ haiñ ham

mat hameñ ai ġham-e-zamāna chheḌ

ai ġham-e-yār ham haiñ ḳhākistar

aur mat ai rafīq-e-ḳhāna chheḌ

‘arsh’ thī har sukūñ kī jo rahzan

us qayāmat kā phir fasāna chheḌ
