Shab-E-Khizan

tujhe e’tibar-e-sahar bhi hai

tujhe intizar-e-bahar bhi

magar ai sada-e-umid-e-dil

miri zindagi to qalil hai

ye shab-e-ḳhizan

hai mire guman se ajib-tar

koi as-pas nahin yahan

koi shakl ho jo dil-afrin

koi naam ho jo mata-e-jan

koi chand zina-e-abr se

utar aae aur mujhe thaam le

koi ḳhvab-ru badi gahri niind se

chaunk kar mira naam le

sar-e-sham koi sitara jo

koi rah-rau kisi raah men

jise ho faqat yahi aarzu

mira haath thaam ke raushni ke

kisi madar men le chale

miri niind chuum ke

ḳhvab ke kisi margh-zar men le chale

magar ai baha-e-umid-e-dil

tiri zindagi bhi qalil hai

ye ḳhizan ki raat

tavil hai
