Sham Tanhai dhuan Uthta Barabar dekhte

shaam tanhai dhuan uThta barabar dekhte

phir sar-e-shab chand ubharne ka bhi manzar dekhte

jumbish-e-lab men miri avaz ki tasvir hai

kaash vo bhi bolte lafzon ke paikar dekhte

sahilon par sipiyan thiin aur hava ka shor tha

paniyon men dubte to koi gauhar dekhte

khiḌkiyon ki oT se andaza ho sakta nahin

shahr ka ahval tum ghar se nikal kar dekhte

aane valon ke liye darvaze rahte hain khule

jaane vaale bhi kabhi muḌ kar su-e-dar dekhte

barishon men bhigna jismon ka ujla bankpan

raston ki gard bhi ye log sar par dekhte

vo jinhen dastar ki hasrat rahi hai umr bhar

mere shanon par kabhi ‘aḳhtar’ mira sar dekhte
