Hazāroñ ḳhvāhisheñ aisī ki har ḳhvāhish pe dam nikle

bahut nikle mire armān lekin phir bhī kam nikle

Aage aati thi haal-e-dil pe hansi

ab kisi baat par nahi aati

Aata hai daagh-e-hasrat-e-dil ka shumaar yaad

mujh se mire gunah ka hisaab ai khuda na maang

Na thā kuchh to ḳhudā thā kuchh na hotā to ḳhudā hotā

Duboyā mujh ko hone ne na hotā maiñ to kyā hotā

Rañj se ḳhūgar huā insāñ to miT jaatā hai rañj

mushkileñ mujh par paḌīñ itnī ki āsāñ ho ga.iiñ

ragoñ meñ dauḌte phirne ke ham nahīñ qaa.il

jab aañkh hī se na Tapkā to phir lahū kyā hai
