Zinda Rahe to Hum Ko Na Pahchan Di Gai

zinda rahe to ham ko na pahchān dī ga.ī

marne ke ba.ad ḳhuub pazīrā.ī kī ga.ī

kyā kyā sitam hue haiñ mere saath bārhā

dhoke se kitnī baar mirī jaan lī ga.ī

siine se mere noch lī tasvīr-e-yār bhī

shiryān-e-zindagī hī mirī kaaT dī ga.ī

tanhā.iyoñ meñ maiñ terī yādoñ ke saath thā

mahfil sajī to yādoñ se vābastagī ga.ī

is lā-davā maraz kā asar pūchhte ho kyā

dil ne diyā na saath to tanhā.ī bhī ga.ī

dariyā masarratoñ kā to ab suukh hī gayā

ḳhūn-e-jigar piyā to mirī tishnagī ga.ī

detā javāb kyā maiñ takallum kā yaar ke

us kī nigāh-e-nāz mire hoñT sī ga.ī

arbāb-e-ilm-o-fan kī tavajjoh huī to ‘shād’

mahfil meñ tere fan ko bhī pahchān dī ga.ī
