Sahar Hote Hi Ahl-E-Anjuman Ko Nind Si Aai

sahar hote hī ahl-e-anjuman ko niiñd sī aa.ī

añdhere aur gahre ho ga.e jab raushnī aa.ī

dam-e-sair-e-chaman aksar ye manzar ham ne dekhā hai

jidhar tum the udhar phūloñ ke ruḳh par tāzgī aa.ī

sivā.e shorish-e-parvāz sab kuchh hai gulistāñ meñ

bahār aa.ī magar ik daam phailātī huī aa.ī

abhī tak maut se miltā huā ik nashsha taarī thā

tum aa.e zindagī kā hosh aayā zindagī aa.ī

maiñ tark-e-ishq par nāzāñ thā lekin vāqi.a ye hai

ki aaj un kā ḳhayāl aayā to apnī yaad bhī aa.ī

sabab kuchh aur thā merī musalsal tishna-kāmī kā

maiñ ye samjhā ki saaqī kī tavajjoh meñ kamī aa.ī

añdhere meñ haiñ kitne tishnigān-e-mai-kadā ‘shāhid’

jahāñ tak daur-e-jām aayā vahīñ tak raushnī aa.ī
