agar fursat mile paanī tahrīroñ ko paḌh lenā


har ik dariyā hazāroñ saal afsāna likhtā hai

'aḳhtar' guzarte lamhoñ aahaT pe yuuñ na chauñk


is mātamī julūs meñ ik zindagī bhī hai

alag siyāsat-e-darbāñ se dil meñ hai ik baat


ye vaqt merī rasā.ī vaqt hai ki nahīñ

allāh tere haath hai ab aabrū-e-shauq


dam ghuT rahā hai vaqt raftār dekh kar

aur kyā chāhtī hai gardish-e-ayyām ki ham


apnā ghar bhuul ga.e un galī bhuul ga.e

baabū-giirī karte ho ga.e 'ālī' ko do saal


murjhāyā vo phuul chehra bhūre paḌ ga.e baal

chehra o naam ek saath aaj na yaad aa sake


vaqt ne kis shabīh ko ḳhvāb o ḳhayāl kar diyā

dillī meñ aaj bhiik bhī miltī nahīñ unheñ


thā kal talak dimāġh jinheñ taaj-o-taḳht

diyā bujhā phir jal jaa.e aur rut bhī palTā khaa.e


phir jo haath se jaa.e samay vo kabhī na lauT ke aa.e

gayā jo haath se vo vaqt phir nahīñ aatā


kahāñ umiid ki phir din phireñ hamāre ab

ġhazal us ne chheḌī mujhe saaz denā


zarā umr-e-rafta ko āvāz denā

guzarne na vo raat maiñ ne


ghaḌī par rakh diyā thā haath maiñ ne

guzarte vaqt ne kyā kyā na chāra saazī


vagarna zaḳhm jo us ne diyā thā kaarī thā

hazāroñ saal safar kar ke phir vahīñ pahuñche


bahut zamāna huā thā hameñ zamīñ se chale
