    zindagī be-sā.ebāñ be-ghar kahīñ aisī na thī

    āsmāñ aisā nahīñ thā aur zamīñ aisī na thī

    ham bichhaḌne se hue gumrāh varna is se qabl

    merā dāman tar na thā terī jabīñ aisī na thī

    ab jo badlā hai to apnī ruuh tak hairān huuñ

    terī jānib se maiñ shāyad be-yaqīñ aisī na thī

    bad-gumānī jab na thī bhī nahīñ thā mo'tariz

    maiñ bhī terī shaḳhsiyat par nukta-chīñ aisī na thī

    kyā mire dil aur kyā āñkhoñ hissa hai magar

    chādar-e-shab is se pahle shabnamīñ aisī na thī

    kyā havā aa.ī ki itne phuul dil meñ khil ga.e

    pichhle mausam meñ ye shāḳh-e-yāsmīñ aisī na thī

    zindagi be-saeban be-ghar kahin aisi na thi

    aasman aisa nahin tha aur zamin aisi na thi

    hum bichhaDne se hue gumrah warna is se qabl

    mera daman tar na tha teri jabin aisi na thi

    ab jo badla hai to apni ruh tak hairan hun

    teri jaanib se main shayad be-yaqin aisi na thi

    bad-gumani jab na thi tu bhi nahin tha mo'tariz

    main bhi teri shaKHsiyat par nukta-chin aisi na thi

    kya mere dil aur kya aankhon ka hissa hai magar

    chadar-e-shab is se pahle shabnamin aisi na thi

    kya hawa aai ki itne phul dil mein khil gae

    pichhle mausam mein ye shaKH-e-yasmin aisi na thi
