Rafta Rafta Dil-E-Be-Tab Thahar Jaega

rafta rafta dil-e-be-tāb Thahar jā.egā

rafta rafta tirī nazroñ kā asar jā.egā

daad be-dād kī is meñ koī taḳhsīs nahīñ

naqsh-e-hastī meñ koī rañg to bhar jā.egā

aap agar mā.il-e-tajdīd-e-sitam ho jaa.eñ

rañg-e-ta.alīm-e-vafā aur nikhar jā.egā

arz-e-tishna pe baras abr-e-ravāñ khul ke baras

baat rah jā.egī ye vaqt guzar jā.egā

dhuup aur chhāñv musallam magar apnī had meñ

vaqt pāband nahīñ hai ki Thahar jā.egā

raushnī meñ hai charāġhoñ ke tale tārīkī

ham samajhte the ki māhaul sañvar jā.egā

ishq to apnī jagah kaif-e-musalsal hai ‘urūj’

nashsha-e-bāda nahīñ hai jo utar jā.egā
