Aaj din bhar teyrey aaney ka intzaar

Aaj, Din Bhar Teyrey Aaney Ka Intzaar Kiyaa!
Raat, Fir, Teyrey Khayaaloun Ney Bey Qaraar Kiyaa!
Shoukh Aankhoun Ki Baar-Baar Mujhey Yaad Aayee:
Har Sitaarey Mein, Usee Rooh Kaa Deedaar Kiyaa!
Aaj, Apnoun Ney, Paraayoun Kaa Bharam Torh Diyaa;
Eik May Ney Hi, Meyrey Dil Sey Sarokaar Kiyaa!
Tum Naheen Aaye Ho: Aisaa Naheen Ki Mar Jaaoon?
Baat Yeh Hai, Ki, Yoon Jeenaa Meyraa Dushwaar Kiyaa!
Haath Mein Hath, Aankh Aankh-Mein Shareek Naheen;
Aisaa Lagtaa Hai, Ki, Ho Ham Ney Naheen Pyaar Kiyaa!
Tumney Achchhaa Kiyaa, Daaman Bachaa Liyaa Apnaa;
Eik Ham Hi To Naheen, Jis Ney Aitbaar Kiyaa?
Ham To, May-See Haseen Shay Pai Mar Mitey Ya Rab!
Tab Bhi Saaqee Ney Baraabar Hamain Beyzaar Kiyaa?
Aag Lagtee Hai To Lag Jaaye, ‘Abd’, Paanee Mein;
Tum Ney Kyaa Kar Diyaa, Khwaaboun Ney Giraftaar Kiyaa
