Ultii ho gayin sab tadbeeren kuch na davaa ne kaam kiya,
Dekha iss beemari-e-dil ne aakhir kaam tamaam kiya,

Ehed-e-jawani ro ro kaata, peeri main li aankhen muund,
Yaani raat bohat they jaage subh hui araam kiya,

Woh tujh ko bhoole hain to tujh pe bhi laazim hai meer,
Khaak daal, aag laga, naam na le, yaad na kar..

bazicha-e-atfal hai duniya mere age
hota hai shab-o-roz tamasha mere age

ik khel hai aurang-e-suleman mere nazdik
ik bat hai ejaz-e-masiha mere age

juz nam nahi surat-e-alam mujhe manzur
juz waham nahi hasti-e-ashiya mere age

bas k dushwar hai har kam ka asan hona
admi ko bhi mayassar nahi insan hona

giriya chahe hai kharabi mere kashane ki
dar-o-diwar se tapak hai bayaban hona

wa-e-diwangi-e-shauq k har dam mujh ko
ap jana udhar aur ap hi hairan hona

bahot sahi gam-e-geti sharab kam kya hai
gulam-e-saqi-e-kausar hun mujhko gam kya hai

tumhari tarz-o-rawish jante hain ham kya hai
raqib par hai agar lutf to sitam kya hai

amad-e-khat se hua hai sard jo bazar-e-dost
dud-e-shama-e-kushta tha shayad khat-e-rukhsar-e-dost

ai dil na aqabat andesh zabt-e-shauq kar
kaun la sakta hai tab-e-jalwa-e-didar-e-dost

aina kyun na dun k tamasha kahen jise
aisa kahan se laun k tujhsa kahen jise

hasrat ne la rakha teri bazm-e-khayal mein
guldasta-e-nigah suweda kahen jise

phunka hai kisne goshe muhabbat mein ai Khuda
afsun-e-intazar tamanna kahen jise

ah ko chahiye ik umr asar hone tak
kaun jita hai teri zulf k sar hone tak

dam har mauj mein hai halqa-e-sadkam-e-nahang
dekhen kya guzare hai qatre pe gauhar hone tak

ashiqi sabr-talab aur tamanna betab
dil ka kya rang karun khun-e-jigar hone tak

a ki meri jan mein qarar nahi hai
taqat-e-bedad-e-intazar nahi hai

dete hain jannat hayat-e-dahar ke badle
nasha ba andaza-e-Khumar nahi hai

giriya nikle hai teri bazm se mujh ko
haye! k rone pe ikhtiyar nahi hai

jab se dekhi hai hamne duniya kareeb se
lagne lage hai saare rishte ajeeb se
