Wo Zindagi Hai Usko Khafa Kya Kare Koi

vo zindagi hai us ko ḳhafa kya kare koi

paani ko sahilon se juda kya kare koi

barish ka pahla qatra hi basti dubo gaya

ab apni jaan ka qarz ada kya kare koi

jab gard uḌ rahi ho harim-e-ḳhayal men

aina dekhne ke siva kya gire koi

vo kya gae ki shahr hi viran ho gaya

ab jangalon men rah ke sada kya kare koi

apne badan ki aag se shamen jalaiye

kachche gharon men jashn-e-hina kya kare koi

zahrab-e-zindagi to ragon men utar gaya

ab ai gham-e-firaq bata kya kare koi

miTTi se khelta hua rizq-e-hava hua

‘aḳhtar’ ab aur sharh-e-vafa kya kare koi
