Waqt aaKHir Le Gaya Wo shoKHiyan Wo Bankpan

vaqt āḳhir le gayā vo shoḳhiyāñ vo bāñkpan

phuul se chehre the kitne aur the nāzuk badan

log rakhte haiñ diloñ meñ ātish-e-buġhz-o-hasad

aur phir karte haiñ shikva jal rahā hai tan badan

chal paḌe jab jānib-e-manzil to phir ai ham-safar

kyā safar kī mushkileñ kyā dūriyāñ kaisī thakan

ham nahīñ toḌeñge apnā ittifāq-o-ittihād

kar chuke haiñ faisla ye ab sabhī ahl-e-vatan

un kī sāzish hai ki bas nām-e-vafā miTtā rahe

merī koshish hai phale-phūle vafāoñ kā chalan

jashn hogā phir vafā kā dostī kā ek din

phir sajegī pyaar ke ehsās kī ik anjuman

jo bhī haiñ ‘shāyān’ ahl-e-zarf un ko ḳhauf kyā

un ke aage sar-nigūñ haiñ vaqt ke dār-o-rasan
