Saat-E-Marg-E-Musalsal Har Nafas Bhaari Hui

sā.at-e-marg-e-musalsal har nafas bhārī huī

phir fazā-e-jāñ pe sadiyoñ kī thakan taarī huī

ḳhānamāñ-barbād yādeñ dastakeñ dene lagīñ

jab kabhī apnī taraf baḌhne kī tayyārī huī

us ne apne aap ko ham par munavvar kar diyā

phir bhī chashm-e-shauq meñ raushan na chiñgārī huī

ab kisī kī bhī nazar uThtī nahīñ sū-e-falak

ham zamīñ vāloñ ko āḳhir kaisī bīmārī huī

vaqt kī daldal meñ ḳhush-āhañg lamhe dhañs ga.e

ya.anī har saa.at sukūt-e-shab kī hai maarī huī

is tarah be-kaif mausam to kabhī guzrā na thā

phuul hī barse na to ab ke sharar-bārī huī

ab dayār-e-dil meñ ‘aḳhtar’ hū kā aalam bhī nahīñ

kis aziyyat-nāk mausam se mirī yaarī huī
