aañch aatī hai tire jism uryānī se


pairahan hai ki sulagtī huī shab hai koī

aaj dekhā hai tujh ko der ke ba.ad


aaj din guzar na jaa.e kahīñ

aaj to be-sabab udaas hai


ishq hotā to koī baat bhī thī

aarzū hai ki yahāñ aa.e


aur phir umr bhar na jaa.e kahīñ

ai dost ham ne tark-e-mohabbat ke bāvajūd


mahsūs hai terī zarūrat kabhī kabhī

akele ghar se pūchhtī hai be-kasī


tirā diyā jalāne vaale kyā hue

apnī dhun meñ rahtā huuñ


maiñ bhī tere jaisā huuñ

bharī duniyā meñ nahīñ lagtā


jaane kis chiiz kamī hai abhī

bulā.ūñgā na milūñgā na ḳhat likhūñgā tujhe


tirī ḳhushī ke liye ḳhud ko ye sazā dūñgā

chup chup kyuuñ rahte ho 'nāsir'


ye kyā rog lagā rakkhā hai

daa.em ābād rahegī duniyā


ham na hoñge koī ham hogā

dil dhaḌakne sabab yaad aayā


vo tirī yaad thī ab yaad aayā

dil to merā udaas hai 'nāsir'


shahr kyuuñ saa.eñ saa.eñ kartā hai

din bhar to maiñ duniyā ke dhandoñ meñ khoyā rahā


jab dīvāroñ se dhuup Dhalī tum yaad aa.e

din guzārā thā baḌī mushkil se


phir tirā va.ada-e-shab yaad aayā

ga.e dinoñ surāġh le kar kidhar se aayā kidhar gayā vo


ajiib mānūs ajnabī thā mujhe to hairān kar gayā vo

girafta-dil haiñ bahut aaj tere dīvāne


ḳhudā kare koī tere sivā na pahchāne

haal-e-dil ham bhī sunāte lekin


jab vo ruḳhsat huā tab yaad aayā

hamāre ghar dīvāroñ pe 'nāsir'


udāsī baal khole so rahī hai

is shahr-e-be-charāġh meñ jā.egī kahāñ


aa ai shab-e-firāq tujhe ghar le chaleñ

jinheñ ham dekh kar jiite the 'nāsir'


vo log āñkhoñ se ojhal ho ga.e haiñ

jurm-e-ummīd sazā de


mere haq meñ bhī kuchh sunā de

kabhī zulfoñ ghaTā ne gherā


kabhī āñkhoñ chamak yaad aa.ī

kahte haiñ ġhazal qāfiya-paimā.ī hai 'nāsir'


ye qāfiya-paimā.ī zarā kar ke to dekho

kal jo thā vo aaj nahīñ jo aaj hai kal miT jā.egā


rūkhī-sūkhī jo mil jaa.e shukr karo to behtar hai
