umr guzrī hai iltijā karte


qissa-e-ġham lab-āshnā karte

jiine vaale tire baġhair ai dost


mar na jaate to aur kyā karte

haa.e vo qahr-e-sādgī-āmez


kaash ham phir unheñ ḳhafā karte

rañg hotā kuchh aur duniyā


shaiḳh merā agar kahā karte

aap karte jo ehtirām-e-butāñ


but-kade ḳhud ḳhudā ḳhudā karte

rind hote jo bā-shu.ūr 'anvar'


kyā batā.ūñ tumheñ vo kyā karte

umr guzri hai iltija karte


qissa-e-gham lab-ashna karte

jine wale tere baghair ai dost


mar na jate to aur kya karte

hae wo qahr-e-sadgi-amez


kash hum phir unhen KHafa karte

rang hota kuchh aur duniya ka


shaiKH mera agar kaha karte

aap karte jo ehtiram-e-butan


but-kade KHud KHuda KHuda karte

rind hote jo ba-shuur 'anwar'


kya bataun tumhein wo kya karte
