    hai agarche shahr meñ apnī shanāsā.ī bahut

    phir bhī rahtā hai hameñ ehsās-e-tanhā.ī bahut

    ab ye sochā hai ki apnī zaat meñ simTe raheñ

    ham ne kar ke dekh sab se shanāsā.ī bahut

    muñh chhupā kar āstīñ meñ der tak rote rahe

    raat Dhaltī chāñdnī meñ us yaad aa.ī bahut

    qatra qatra ashk-e-ġham āñkhoñ se āḳhir bah ga.e

    ham ne palkoñ unheñ zanjīr pahnā.ī bahut

    apnā saaya bhī judā lagtā hai apnī zaat se

    ham ne us se dil lagāne sazā paa.ī bahut

    ab to sail-e-dard tham jaa.e sakūñ dil ko mile

    zaḳhm-e-dil meñ aa chukī hai ab to gahrā.ī bahut

    shaam ke sāyoñ sūrat phailte jaate haiñ ham

    lag rahī tañg ham ko ghar añgnā.ī bahut

    aa.ina ban ke vo sūrat sāmne jab aa ga.ī

    aks apnā dekh kar mujh ko hañsī aa.ī bahut

    vo sahar tārīkiyoñ meñ aaj bhī rū-posh hai

    jis ke ġham meñ kho chukī āñkhoñ bīnā.ī bahut

    maiñ to jhoñkā thā asīr-e-dām kyā hotā 'kalīm'

    us ne zulfoñ mujhe zanjīr pahnā.ī bahut

    hai agarche shahr mein apni shanasai bahut

    phir bhi rahta hai hamein ehsas-e-tanhai bahut

    ab ye socha hai ki apni zat mein simTe rahen

    hum ne kar ke dekh li sab se shanasai bahut

    munh chhupa kar aastin mein der tak rote rahe

    raat Dhalti chandni mein us ki yaad aai bahut

    qatra qatra ashk-e-gham aankhon se aaKHir bah gae

    hum ne palkon ki unhen zanjir pahnai bahut

    apna saya bhi juda lagta hai apni zat se

    hum ne us se dil lagane ki saza pai bahut

    ab to sail-e-dard tham jae sakun dil ko mile

    zaKHm-e-dil mein aa chuki hai ab to gahrai bahut

    sham ke sayon ki surat phailte jate hain hum

    lag rahi tang hum ko ghar ki angnai bahut

    aaina ban ke wo surat samne jab aa gai

    aks apna dekh kar mujh ko hansi aai bahut

    wo sahar tarikiyon mein aaj bhi ru-posh hai

    jis ke gham mein kho chuki aankhon ki binai bahut

    main to jhonka tha asir-e-dam kya hota 'kalim'

    us ne zulfon ki mujhe zanjir pahnai bahut
