Raat Aai Hai Bachchon Ko Padhane Mein Laga Hun

raat aai hai bachchon ko paḌhane men laga huun

ḳhud jo na bana un ko banane men laga huun

vo shaḳhs to rag rag men miri guunj raha hai

barson se gala jis ka dabane men laga huun

utra huun diya le ke nihan-ḳhana-e-jan men

soe soe aaseb jagane men laga huun

patthar huun to shishe se mujhe kaam paḌa hai

shisha huun to patthar ke zamane men laga huun

fankar ba-zid hai ki lagaega numaish

main huun ki har ik zaḳhm chhupane men laga huun

kuchh paḌhna hai kuchh likhna hai kuchh rona hai shab ko

main kaam sar-e-sham chukane men laga huun

aise men to ab sabr bhi mushkil hua ‘akbar’

sab kahte hain main us ko bhulane men laga huun
