chaman meñ rakhte haiñ kāñTe bhī ik maqām ai dost

faqat guloñ se gulshan aabrū to nahīñ

chaman mein rakhte hain kanTe bhi ek maqam ai dost

faqat gulon se hi gulshan ki aabru to nahin

Ummeed Fazli

qubūl kaise karūñ un faisla ki ye log

mire ḳhilāf merā bayān māñgte haiñ

qubul kaise karun un ka faisla ki ye log

mere KHilaf hi mera bayan mangte hain

Manzoor Hashmi

apne hone kuchh ehsās na hone se huā

ḳhud se milnā mirā ik shaḳhs ke khone se huā

apne hone ka kuchh ehsas na hone se hua

KHud se milna mera ek shaKHs ke khone se hua

añgḌā.ī bhī vo lene na paa.e uThā ke haath

dekhā jo mujh ko chhoḌ diye muskurā ke haath

she couldn't even stretch out with her arms upraised

seeing me she smiled and composed herself all fazed

angDai bhi wo lene na pae uTha ke hath

dekha jo mujh ko chhoD diye muskura ke hath

she couldn't even stretch out with her arms upraised

seeing me she smiled and composed herself all fazed

Nizam Rampuri

hazār sham.a farozāñ ho raushnī ke liye

nazar nahīñ to añdherā hai aadmī ke liye

hazar shama farozan ho raushni ke liye

nazar nahin to andhera hai aadmi ke liye
