Tarikiyon Ka Hum the Hadaf Dekhte Rahe

tārīkiyoñ kā ham the hadaf dekhte rahe

sayyāre sab hamārī taraf dekhte rahe

TukḌe hamāre dil ke paḌe the yahāñ vahāñ

thā pattharoñ se jin ko shaġhaf dekhte rahe

barsī thī ek ġham kī ghaTā is dayār meñ

chehroñ kā dhul rahā thā kalaf dekhte rahe

motī mile na ḳhvāb kī parchhā.iyāñ milīñ

āñkhoñ ke khol khol sadaf dekhte rahe

bujhtī huī sī ek shabīh zehn meñ liye

miTtī huī sitāroñ kī saf dekhte rahe

sapne talāsh karte rahe zindagī meñ ham

ik ret kī nadī meñ sadaf dekhte rahe

goyā thā ek aalam kā dariyā chaḌhā huā

‘shāhid’ sifāt-e-shāh-e-najaf dekhte rahe
