Firaq Gorakhpuri

qurbateñ hote hue bhī fāsloñ meñ qaid haiñ

kitnī āzādī se ham apnī hadoñ meñ qaid haiñ

qurbaten hote hue bhi faslon mein qaid hain

kitni aazadi se hum apni hadon mein qaid hain

Saleem Kausar

to jo nā-fahm haiñ vo bolte haiñ in dinoñ

jinheñ ḳhāmosh rahne sazā ma.alūm hai

ya to jo na-fahm hain wo bolte hain in dinon

ya jinhen KHamosh rahne ki saza malum hai

Shuja Khaavar

chaman mein aa ke bhi kanTa gulab ho na saka

hum to tamam umr teri hi ada rahe

ye kya hua ki phir bhi hamin bewafa rahe
