Sham Guzri Hai Abhi Gham Ki Sahar Baqi Hai

shaam guzrī hai abhī ġham kī sahar baaqī hai

ik safar ḳhatm huā ek safar baaqī hai

kis tarah ghar meñ kahūñ apne shikasta-ghar ko

koī dīvār salāmat hai na dar baaqī hai

zard aatā hai nazar ḳhauf-e-ḳhizāñ se vo bhī

ek pattā jo sar-e-shāḳh-e-shajar baaqī hai

ab jalā.eñ bhī dobāra to vo shāyad na jaleñ

jin charāġhoñ pe havāoñ kā asar baaqī hai

kyuuñ rahe tishna-e-ḳhūñ vo bhī hamāre hote

tere tarkash meñ koī tiir agar baaqī hai

ḳhatm hote hī maiñ aatī nahīñ rāh-e-manzil

umr-bhar chalte rahe phir bhī safar baaqī hai

dasht kī ḳhaak huā jism to kab kā ‘ḳhāvar’

shahr meñ ab bhī mirā naam magar baaqī hai
