kuchh to kah wasl ki phir raat chali jati hai

kuchh to kah vasl kī phir raat chalī jaatī hai
din guzar jaa.eñ haiñ par baat chalī jaatī hai

rah ga.e gaah tabassum pe gahe baat hī par
baare ai ham-nashīñ auqāt chalī jaatī hai

Tuk to vaqfa bhī kar ai gardish-e-daurāñ ki ye jaan
umr ke haif hī kyā saat chalī jaatī hai

yaañ to aatī nahīñ shatranj-zamāna kī chaal
aur vaañ baazī huī maat chalī jaatī hai

roz aane pe nahīñ nisbat-e-ishqī mauqūf
umr bhar ek mulāqāt chalī jaatī hai

shaiḳh-e-be-nafs ko nazla nahīñ hai naak kī raah
ye hai jiryān-e-manī dhaat chalī jaatī hai

ḳhirqa mindīl o ridā mast liye jaate haiñ
shaiḳh kī saarī karāmāt chalī jaatī hai

hai muazzin jo baḌā murġh musallī us kī
mastoñ se nok hī kī baat chalī jaatī hai

paañv ruktā nahīñ masjid se dam-e-āḳhir bhī
marne par aayā hai par laat chalī jaatī hai

ek ham hī se tafāvut hai sulūkoñ meñ ‘mīr’
yuuñ to auroñ kī mudārāt chalī jaatī hai
