añdherī raat ko maiñ roz-e-ishq samjhā thā


charāġh ne jalāyā to dil bujhā merā

ā.īna chhoḌ ke dekhā kiye sūrat merī


dil-e-muztar ne mire un ko sañvarne na diyā

ābādī bhī dekhī hai vīrāne bhī dekhe haiñ


jo ujḌe aur phir na base dil vo nirālī bastī hai

aadmī aadmī se miltā hai


dil magar kam kisī se miltā hai

āġhāz-e-mohabbat anjām bas itnā hai


jab dil meñ tamannā thī ab dil tamannā hai

aaj tak dil aarzū hai vahī


phuul murjhā gayā hai hai vahī

aane vaalī hai kyā balā sar par


aaj phir dil meñ dard hai kam kam

aap daulat ke tarāzū meñ diloñ ko tauleñ


ham mohabbat se mohabbat sila dete haiñ

''aap yaad aatī rahī raat bhar''


chāñdnī dil dukhātī rahī raat bhar

aap pahlū meñ jo baiTheñ to sambhal kar baiTheñ


dil-e-betāb ko aadat hai machal jaane

aarzū terī barqarār rahe


dil kyā hai rahā rahā na rahā

aarzū vasl rakhtī hai pareshāñ kyā kyā


kyā batā.ūñ ki mere dil meñ hai armāñ kyā kyā

ab diloñ meñ koī gunjā.ish nahīñ miltī 'hayāt'


bas kitāboñ meñ likkhā harf-e-vafā rah jā.egā

abhī raah meñ ka.ī moḌ haiñ koī aa.egā koī jā.egā


tumheñ jis ne dil se bhulā diyā use bhūlne duā karo

achchhī sūrat nazar aate machal jaatā hai


kisī aafat meñ na Daale dil-e-nāshād mujhe

adā se dekh lo jaatā rahe gila dil


bas ik nigāh pe Thahrā hai faisla dil

ai junūñ phir mire sar par vahī shāmat aa.ī


phir phañsā zulfoñ meñ dil phir vahī aafat aa.ī

anhonī kuchh zarūr huī dil ke saath aaj


nādān thā magar ye divānā kabhī na thā

aql o dil apnī apnī kaheñ jab 'ḳhumār'


aql suniye dil kahā kījiye

aur kyā dekhne ko baaqī hai


aap se dil lagā ke dekh liyā

aur zikr kyā kiije apne dil hālat


kuchh bigaḌtī rahtī hai kuchh sambhaltī rahtī hai

baḌā shor sunte the pahlū meñ dil


jo chīrā to ik qatra-e-ḳhuuñ na niklā

badaltī rahī hai dil duniyā


na.e dastūr hote rahe haiñ

behtar to hai yahī ki na duniyā se dil lage


par kyā kareñ jo kaam na be-dil-lagī chale
