ajab harīf thā mere saath Duub gayā

mire safīne ko ġharqāb dekhne ke liye

ajab harif tha mere hi sath Dub gaya

mere safine ko gharqab dekhne ke liye

Irfan Siddiqi

aisī tārīkiyāñ āñkhoñ meñ basī haiñ ki 'farāz'

raat to raat hai ham din ko jalāte haiñ charāġh

aisi tarikiyan aankhon mein basi hain ki 'faraaz'

raat to raat hai hum din ko jalate hain charagh

Ahmad Faraz

ulfat ne tirī ham ko to rakkhā na kahīñ

dariyā na jañgal samā na zamīñ

ulfat ne teri hum ko to rakkha na kahin ka

dariya ka na jangal ka sama ka na zamin ka

Wajid Ali Shah Akhtar

tamām jism uryāniyāñ thiiñ āñkhoñ meñ

vo merī ruuh meñ utrā hijāb pahne hue

tamam jism ki uryaniyan thin aankhon mein

wo meri ruh mein utra hijab pahne hue

Saqi Faruqi

ye kaun aane jaane lagā us galī meñ ab

ye kaun merī dāstāñ dohrāne vaalā hai

ye kaun aane jaane laga us gali mein ab

ye kaun meri dastan dohrane wala hai
