Puchhe Hai Mera Dil Teri Tanhai Se Kya Kya

pūchhe hai mirā dil tirī tanhā.ī se kyā kyā

pahlū meñ koī shaḳhs numūdār huā kyā

dil sail-e-havas meñ to pahuñchtā hai kahīñ aur

mad.hosh musāfir ho to manzil kā pata kyā

ai zehn-e-rasā kuchh sipar-andāz to ho jā

dekheñ to javāb aate haiñ aflāk se kyā kyā

kyuuñ phailtī jaatī hai koī ḳhushbū-e-mānūs

dil abr kī mānind tire dar se uThā kyā

ai rahbar-e-mārūf ye taskīn-e-safar kyuuñ

tujh ko nazar aayā mirā naqsh-e-kaf-e-pā kyā

aayā huuñ barī ho ke maiñ aivān-e-ḳhirad se

ye shahr-e-mohabbat hai yahāñ merī sazā kyā

ik zaḳhm mahaktā hai tumhārā rag-e-jāñ par

samjhūñ maiñ use apnī vafāoñ kā sila kyā

hai mahv-e-tamannā dil-e-āzurda ki dekhe

pindār-e-mohabbat meñ hai andāz-e-ḳhudā kyā

‘āfāq’ mire chāñd ke baare meñ na pūchho

aa jaa.e vo añgḌā.ī pe to raqs-e-sabā kyā
