aur kyā is se ziyāda koī narmī bartūñ

dil ke zaḳhmoñ ko chhuā hai tire gāloñ tarah

aur kya is se ziyaada koi narmi bartun

dil ke zaKHmon ko chhua hai tere galon ki tarah

Jaan Nisar Akhtar

rāsta sochte rahne se kidhar bantā hai

sar meñ saudā ho to dīvār meñ dar bantā hai

rasta sochte rahne se kidhar banta hai

sar mein sauda ho to diwar mein dar banta hai

Jaleel 'Aali'

burī sarisht na badlī jagah badalne se

chaman meñ aa ke bhī kāñTā gulāb ho na sakā

buri sarisht na badli jagah badalne se

chaman mein aa ke bhi kanTa gulab ho na saka

in añdheroñ se pare is shab-e-ġham se aage

ik na.ī sub.h bhī hai shām-e-alam se aage

in andheron se pare is shab-e-gham se aage

ek nai subh bhi hai sham-e-alam se aage

Ishrat Qadri

ek shai thī ba-andāz-e-digar māñgī thī

maiñ ne bīnā.ī nahīñ tujh se nazar māñgī thī

ek hi shai thi ba-andaz-e-digar mangi thi

main ne binai nahin tujh se nazar mangi thi

sham.a jis aag meñ jaltī hai numā.ish ke liye

ham usī aag meñ gum-nām se jal jaate haiñ

the fire,that the flame burns in, for all to see

In that very fire I do burn but namelessly

shama jis aag mein jalti hai numaish ke liye

hum usi aag mein gum-nam se jal jate hain

the fire,that the flame burns in, for all to see

In that very fire I do burn but namelessly
