aañkh se aañkh jab nahīñ miltī

dil se dil ham-kalām hotā hai

aankh se aankh jab nahin milti

dil se dil ham-kalam hota hai

bahut mushkil hai duniyā sañvarnā

tirī zulfoñ pech-o-ḳham nahīñ hai

bahut mushkil hai duniya ka sanwarna

teri zulfon ka pech-o-KHam nahin hai

batā.ūñ kyā tujhe ai ham-nashīñ kis se mohabbat hai

maiñ jis duniyā meñ rahtā huuñ vo is duniyā aurat hai

bataun kya tujhe ai ham-nashin kis se mohabbat hai

main jis duniya mein rahta hun wo is duniya ki aurat hai

dafn kar sakta hun sine mein tumhaare raaz ko

aur tum chaho to afsana bana sakta hun main

is mahfil-e-kaif-o-mastī meñ is anjuman-e-irfānī meñ

sab jām-ba-kaf baiThe rahe ham bhī ga.e chhalkā bhī ga.e

sab jam-ba-kaf baiThe hi rahe hum pi bhi gae chhalka bhi gae

ishq zauq-e-nazāra muft meñ badnām hai

husn ḳhud be-tāb hai jalva dikhāne ke liye

love is needlessly defamed that for vision it is keen

beauty is impatient too for its splendour to be seen

ishq ka zauq-e-nazara muft mein badnam hai

husn KHud be-tab hai jalwa dikhane ke liye

love is needlessly defamed that for vision it is keen

beauty is impatient too for its splendour to be seen

kuchh tumhārī nigāh kāfir thī

kuchh mujhe bhī ḳharāb honā thā

kuchh tumhaari nigah kafir thi

kuchh mujhe bhi KHarab hona tha

kyā kyā huā hai ham se junūñ meñ na pūchhiye

uljhe kabhī zamīñ se kabhī āsmāñ se ham

kya kya hua hai hum se junun mein na puchhiye

uljhe kabhi zamin se kabhi aasman se hum

kyuuñ javānī mujhe yaad aa.ī

maiñ ne ik ḳhvāb dekhā kyā thā

kyun jawani ki mujhe yaad aai

main ne ek KHwab sa dekha kya tha

mujh ko ye aarzū vo uThā.eñ naqāb ḳhud

un ko ye intizār taqāzā kare koī

I had hoped she would unveil at her own behest

and she waits for someone to make a request

mujh ko ye aarzu wo uThaen naqab KHud

un ko ye intizar taqaza kare koi

I had hoped she would unveil at her own behest

and she waits for someone to make a request

phir kisī ke sāmne chashm-e-tamannā jhuk ga.ī

shauq shoḳhī meñ rañg-e-ehtarām aa gayā

phir kisi ke samne chashm-e-tamanna jhuk gai

shauq ki shoKHi mein rang-e-ehtaram aa hi gaya

ro.eñ na abhī ahl-e-nazar haal pe mere

honā hai abhī mujh ko ḳharāb aur ziyāda

roen na abhi ahl-e-nazar haal pe mere

hona hai abhi mujh ko KHarab aur ziyaada

tu is aanchal se ek parcham bana leti to achchha tha
