Wasl Arzan Waqt Ki Lekin Farawani Gai

xbahut qarīb hai pat-jhaḌ kī rut palak na uThā

zamīñ se aks uThā dhuup kī chamak na uThā

ġhilāf-e-sañg meñ lipTā huā hai shahr kā shahr

chalī havā to zamīñ se ġhubār tak na uThā

qadam qadam pe ye Dar thā ki ghaat meñ hai koī

yahāñ to pā-e-tafakkur meñ thī jhijak na uThā

phir apnā apnā kafan le ke chal diye sab log

kisī se bār-e-ġham-e-marg-e-mushtarak na uThā

maiñ chob-e-ġham thā ki pahroñ sulag sulag ke jalā

kabhī jo sho.ala uThā bhī to yak-ba-yak na uThā

shigāf-e-sar ko vajūd-e-havā-e-shor bahut

ye shahr-e-sañg hai yaañ tohmat-e-namak na uThā

bahut zamīñ se uThāyā uThī na parchhā.īñ

girā thā aks kuchh aisā ki aaj tak na uThā
