    rāsta sunsān thā to muḌ ke dekhā kyuuñ nahīñ

    mujh ko tanhā dekh kar us ne pukārā kyuuñ nahīñ

    dhuup āġhosh meñ leTā rahā maiñ umr bhar

    mehrbāñ thā vo to misl-e-abr aayā kyuuñ nahīñ

    ek panchhī der tak sāhil pe mañDlātā rahā

    muztarib thā pyaas se lekin vo utrā kyuuñ nahīñ

    qurb qaus-e-quzah kamre meñ bikhrī thī magar

    raat bhar rañg-e-tamannā phir bhī nikhrā kyuuñ nahīñ

    mujh ko patthar meñ badalte chāhe ḳhud ban jaate vo mom

    ḳhvāhish-e-tifl-e-tamannā ko jagāyā kyuuñ nahīñ

    us ko tanhā ke 'aslam' raat apne room meñ

    qatra-e-ḳhūn-e-havas ā.ankhoñ meñ aayā kyuuñ nahīñ

    rasta sunsan tha to muD ke dekha kyun nahin

    mujh ko tanha dekh kar us ne pukara kyun nahin

    dhup ki aaghosh mein leTa raha main umr bhar

    mehrban tha wo to misl-e-abr aaya kyun nahin

    ek panchhi der tak sahil pe manDlata raha

    muztarib tha pyas se lekin wo utra kyun nahin

    qurb ki qaus-e-quzah kamre mein bikhri thi magar

    raat bhar rang-e-tamanna phir bhi nikhra kyun nahin

    mujh ko patthar mein badalte chahe KHud ban jate wo mom

    KHwahish-e-tifl-e-tamanna ko jagaya kyun nahin

    us ko tanha pa ke 'aslam' raat apne room mein

    qatra-e-KHun-e-hawas aaankhon mein aaya kyun nahin
