vaqt do mujh par kaThin guzre haiñ saarī umr meñ

ik tire aane se pahle ik tire jaane ke ba.ad

waqt do mujh par kaThin guzre hain sari umr mein

ek tere aane se pahle ek tere jaane ke baad

ilāj-e-dard-e-dil tum se masīhā ho nahīñ saktā

tum achchhā kar nahīñ sakte maiñ achchhā ho nahīñ saktā

use kyun hum ne diya dil jo hai be-mehri mein kaamil jise aadat hai jafa ki

jise chiDh mehr-o-wafa ki jise aata nahin aana gham-o-hasrat ka miTana jo sitam mein hai yagana

jaane jo kare qaul na pura kare har kaam adhura yahi din-raat tasawwur hai ki nahaq

use chaha jo na aae na bulae na kabhi pas biThae na ruKH-e-saf dikhae na koi

baat sunae na lagi dil ki bujhae na kali dil ki khilae na gham-o-ranj ghaTae na rah-o-rasm

baDhae jo kaho kuchh to KHafa ho kahe shikwe ki zarurat jo yahi hai to na chaho jo na

chahoge to kya hai na nibahoge to kya hai bahut itrao na dil de ke ye kis kaam ka dil

hai gham-o-andoh ka mara abhi chahun to main rakh dun ise talwon se masal kar abhi munh

dekhte rah jao ki hain un ko hua kya ki inhon ne mera dil le ke mere hath se khoya
