Shab Ke KHilaf Barsar-E-Paikar Kab Hue

shab ke ḳhilāf barsar-e-paikār kab hue

ham log raushnī ke talabgār kab hue

ḳhushbū kī ghaat meñ haiñ shikārī havāoñ ke

jhoñke magar kisī se giraftār kab hue

ta.abīr kī rutoñ ne badan zard kar diye

phir bhī ye log ḳhvāb se bedār kab hue

taale lagā liye haiñ ḳhud apnī zabān par

kyā baat hai tum itne samajhdār kab hue

ye ahd apnī ruuh meñ ahd-e-firāq hai

ham matl.a-e-suḳhan pe numūdār kab hue

ḳhil.at vasūl karte hue sar uThā liyā

rusvā ‘najīb’ ham sar-e-darbār kab hue
