Qaid-E-Gham-E-Hayat Se Hum Ko chhuDa Liya

qaid-e-ġham-e-hayāt se ham ko chhuḌā liyā

achchhā kiyā ki aap ne apnā banā liyā

hone diyā na ham ne añdherā shab-e-firāq

bujhne lagā charāġh to dil ko jalā liyā

duniyā ke paas hai koī is tanz kā javāb

dīvāna apne haal pe ḳhud muskurā liyā

kyā baat thī ki ḳhalvat-e-zāhid ko dekh kar

rind-e-gunāhgār ne sar ko jhukā liyā

chup huuñ tumhārā dard-e-mohabbat liye hue

sab pūchhte haiñ tum ne zamāne se kyā liyā

nā-qābil-e-bayāñ haiñ mohabbat kī lazzateñ

kuchh dil hī jāntā hai jo dil ne mazā liyā

roz-e-azal paḌī thī hazāroñ hī nemateñ

ham ne kisī kā dard-e-mohabbat uThā liyā

baḌhne lagī jo talḳhi-e-ġham-hā-e-zindagī

thoḌā sā bāda-e-ġham-e-jānāñ milā liyā

vāqif nahīñ giraft-e-tasavvur se vo ‘shamīm’

jo ye samajh rahe haiñ ki dāman chhuḌā liyā
