    chehra-e-zindagī nikhar aayā

    jab kabhī ham ne jaam chhalkāyā

    shām-e-hijrāñ bhī ik qayāmat thī

    aap aa.e to mujh ko yaad aayā

    rañg phīkā paḌā vafāoñ

    aaj kuchh is tarah vo sharmāyā

    yuuñ to be-chainiyāñ muqaddar thiiñ

    terī qurbat ne aur taḌpāyā

    kyā qayāmat vo kam-nigāhī thī

    har haqīqat ko jis ne jhuThlāyā

    kyā huī vo diloñ māsūmī

    husn rūThā na ishq pachhtāyā

    haa.e kis kis maqām par dil ko

    us uchaTtī nazar ne bhaTkāyā

    ḳhud-shanāsī thī justujū terī

    tujh ko DhūñDā to aap ko paayā

    'naqsh' āñkhoñ meñ aa ga.e aañsū

    aaj aise meñ kaun yaad aayā

    chehra-e-zindagi nikhar aaya

    jab kabhi hum ne jam chhalkaya

    sham-e-hijran bhi ek qayamat thi

    aap aae to mujh ko yaad aaya

    rang phika paDa wafaon ka

    aaj kuchh is tarah wo sharmaya

    yun to be-chainiyan muqaddar thin

    teri qurbat ne aur taDpaya

    kya qayamat wo kam-nigahi thi

    har haqiqat ko jis ne jhuThlaya

    kya hui wo dilon ki masumi

    husn ruTha na ishq pachhtaya

    hae kis kis maqam par dil ko

    us uchaTti nazar ne bhaTkaya

    KHud-shanasi thi justuju teri

    tujh ko DhunDa to aap ko paya

    'naqsh' aankhon mein aa gae aansu

    aaj aise mein kaun yaad aaya
