jis sar ko ghurur aaj hai yan taj-wari ka

jis sar ko ġhurūr aaj hai yaañ tāj-varī kā
kal us pe yahīñ shor hai phir nauhagarī kā

sharminda tire ruḳh se hai ruḳhsār parī kā
chaltā nahīñ kuchh aage tire kabk-e-darī kā

āfāq kī manzil se gayā kaun salāmat
asbāb luTā raah meñ yaañ har safarī kā

zindāñ meñ bhī shorish na ga.ī apne junūñ kī
ab sañg mudāvā hai is āshufta-sarī kā

har zaḳhm-e-jigar dāvar-e-mahshar se hamārā
insāf-talab hai tirī bedād-garī kā

apnī to jahāñ aañkh laḌī phir vahīñ dekho
ā.īne ko lapkā hai pareshāñ-nazarī kā

sad mausam-e-gul ham ko tah-e-bāl hī guzre
maqdūr na dekhā kabhū be-bāl-o-parī kā

is rañg se jhamke hai palak par ki kahe tū
TukḌā hai mirā ashk aqīq-e-jigarī kā

kal sair kiyā ham ne samundar ko bhī jā kar
thā dast-e-nigar panja-e-mizhgāñ kī tarī kā

le saañs bhī āhista ki nāzuk hai bahut kaam
āfāq kī is kārgah-e-shīshagarī kā

Tuk ‘mīr’ jigar-e-soḳhta kī jald ḳhabar le
kyā yaar bharosā hai charāġh-e-saharī kā
