wo kash waqt ke pahre ko toD kar aate

vo kaash vaqt ke pahre ko toḌ kar aate

jo mahv-e-ḳhvāb haiñ un ko jhiñjhoḌ kar aate

na uThtī koī nigāh-e-ġhalat sar-e-mahfil

vo apne jalve ko ghar apne chhoḌ kar aate

udaas āñkhoñ ko dekhā to ye ḳhayāl aayā

chaman ke phūloñ se shabnam nichoḌ kar aate

asā-e-mūsā kabhī haath lag gayā hotā

fir.aun-e-vaqt kā sar ham bhī phoḌ kar aate

agar thī chehre pe raunaq kī aarzū un ko

musībatoñ kī kalā.ī maroḌ kar aate

udhar na nikleñge vo nazar-e-bad kā ḳhadsha hai

ḳhabar ye hotī to ham āñkheñ phoḌ kar aate

sunā ki aaj bhī dānishvaroñ meñ ḳhuub machī

‘asar’ bhī aate to himmat baTor kar aate
