Raat Aangan Mein Chand Utra Tha

raat āñgan meñ chāñd utrā thā

tum mile the ki ḳhvāb dekhā thā

ab ki ḳhud haiñ hisār-e-zāt meñ band

varna apnā bhī zor chaltā thā

shīsha-e-dil pe aisī choT paḌī

ek lamhe meñ reza reza thā

us ke kūche ke ho liye varna

rāsta har taraf nikaltā thā

rut jo badlī to ye bhī dekh liyā

patta patta zamīñ pe bikhrā thā

ek ḳhushbū hai jaanī pahchānī

is ḳharābe meñ kaun rahtā hai

mom kī tarah vo pighal sā gayā

vo jo patthar kī tarah lagtā thā

ab ki sunte nahīñ ho baat magar

phir kahoge ki koī kahtā thā

raat sunsān thī magar ‘nādir’

hashr sā dil meñ ek barpā thā
