    maiñ ne tanhā kabhī us ko dekhā nahīñ

    phir bhī jab us ko dekhā vo tanhā milā

    jaise sahrā meñ chashma kahīñ

    samundar meñ mīnār-e-nūr

    koī fikr-e-auhām meñ

    fikr sadiyoñ akelī akelī rahī

    zehn sadiyoñ akelā akelā milā

    aur akelā akelā bhaTaktā rahā

    har na.e har purāne zamāne meñ vo

    be-zabāñ tīrgī meñ kabhī

    aur kabhī chīḳhtī dhuup meñ

    chāñdnī meñ kabhī ḳhvāb

    us taqdīr thī ik musalsal talāsh

    ḳhud ko DhūñDā kiyā har fasāne meñ vo

    bojh se apne us kamar jhuk ga.ī

    qad magar aur kuchh aur baḌhtā rahā

    ḳhair-o-shar koī jañg ho

    zindagī ho koī jihād

    vo hamesha huā sab se pahle shahīd

    sab se pahle vo suulī pe chaḌhtā rahā

    jin taqāzoñ ne us ko diyā thā janam

    un āġhosh meñ phir samāyā na vo

    ḳhuun meñ ved gūñje hue

    aur jabīñ par farozāñ azaañ

    aur siine pe raqsāñ salīb

    be-jhijhak sab ke qaabū meñ aayā na vo

    haath meñ us ke kyā thā jo detā hameñ

    sirf ik kiil us kiil ik nishāñ

    nashsha-e-mai koī chiiz hai

    ik ghaḌī do ghaḌī ek raat

    aur hāsil vahī dard-e-sar

    us ne zindāñ meñ lekin piyā thā jo zahr

    uTh ke siine se baiThā na is dhuāñ

    main ne tanha kabhi us ko dekha nahin

    phir bhi jab us ko dekha wo tanha mila

    jaise sahra mein chashma kahin

    ya samundar mein minar-e-nur

    ya koi fikr-e-auham mein

    fikr sadiyon akeli akeli rahi

    zehn sadiyon akela akela mila

    aur akela akela bhaTakta raha

    har nae har purane zamane mein wo

    be-zaban tirgi mein kabhi

    aur kabhi chiKHti dhup mein

    chandni mein kabhi KHwab ki

    us ki taqdir thi ek musalsal talash

    KHud ko DhunDa kiya har fasane mein wo

    bojh se apne us ki kamar jhuk gai

    qad magar aur kuchh aur baDhta raha

    KHair-o-shar ki koi jang ho

    zindagi ka ho koi jihad

    wo hamesha hua sab se pahle shahid

    sab se pahle wo suli pe chaDhta raha

    jin taqazon ne us ko diya tha janam

    un ki aaghosh mein phir samaya na wo

    KHun mein wed gunje hue

    aur jabin par farozan azan

    aur sine pe raqsan salib

    be-jhijhak sab ke qabu mein aaya na wo

    hath mein us ke kya tha jo deta hamein

    sirf ek kil us kil ka ek nishan

    nashsha-e-mai koi chiz hai

    ek ghaDi do ghaDi ek raat

    aur hasil wahi dard-e-sar

    us ne zindan mein lekin piya tha jo zahr

    uTh ke sine se baiTha na is ka dhuan
