Ye Baat Dasht-E-Wafa Ki Nahin Chaman Ki Hai

ye baat dasht-e-vafā kī nahīñ chaman kī hai

chaman kī baat bhī zaḳhmoñ ke pairahan kī hai

havā-e-shahr bahut ajnabī sahī lekin

ye us meñ bū-e-vafā terī anjuman kī hai

maiñ but-tarāsh huuñ patthar se kaam hai mujh ko

magar ye tarz-e-adā tere bāñkpan kī hai

lapak to sho.ala kī fitrat hai phir bhī kyā kiije

ki is meñ phuul sī rañgat tere badan kī hai

ye merī vādī-e-jāñ nāg-phan kā jañgal hai

ye ḳhushbuoñ kī ridā shāḳh-e-yāsman kī hai

mere junūñ kī sazā sañgsār honā hai

lahū lahū ye qabā kyuuñ nigār-e-fan kī hai

ye dil to sho.ala-e-afsurda hai magar ‘tanvīr’

mirī ragoñ meñ tapish garmī-e-suḳhan kī hai
