Ulatii Ho Gaiin Sab Tadabiiren,
Kuchh Na Davaa Ne Kaam Kiyaa
Dekhaa Is Biimaarii-E-Dil Ne
Aakhir Kaam Tamaam Kiyaa
Ahd-E-Javaanii Ro-Ro Kaataa,
Piirii Mein Liin Aankhein Muund
Yaani Raat Bahot The Jaage
Subah Huii Aaraam Kiyaa
[Piirii=old Age]
Naahaq Ham Majabuuron Par
Tohamat Hai Mukhtaarii Kii
Chaahate Hain So Aap Kare Hain,
Hamako Abas Badanaam Kiyaa
[Naahaq=unnecessarily; Tohmat=slander/
Accusation; Abas=idle/useless]
Sarazad Ham Se Be-Adabii To
Wahashat Men Bhii Kam Hii Huii
Koson Us Kii Or Gae Par
Sajdaa Har Har Gaam Kiyaa
[Sarazad=to Do]
Aise Aaho-Eharam-Khurdaa Kii
Wahashat Khonii Mushkil Thii
Sihar Kiyaa, Ijaaz Kiyaa,
Jin Logon Ne Tujh Ko Raam Kiyaa
Yaan Ke Saped-O-Syaah Men
Hamako Dakhal Jo Hai So Itanaa Hai
Raat Ko Ro-Ro Subah Kiyaa,
Din Ko Jyon-Tyon Shaam Kiyaa
‘Mir’ Ke Diin-O-Mazahab Ko Ab
Puuchhate Kyaa Ho Un Ne To
Qashqaa Khiinchaa, Dair Men Baithaa,
Kab Kaa Tark Islaam Kiyaa
