lo zoaf se ab ye haal-e-tan hai

lo zoaf se ab ye haal-e-tan hai
saya mutajassis-e-badan hai
yahan tan hi nahin hai laghari se
hum ko kya hajat-e-kafan hai
misl-e-nikhat hain jama kaisa
apna to badan hi pairahan hai
hun bulbul-e-bostan-e-taswir
be-khauf-e-khizan mera chaman hai
hun kushta-e-tegh-e-sharm-e-jaanan
har zakhm ka be-zaban dhan hai
la-raib 'nasim'-dehlawi to
ustad-e-nazakat-e-sukhan hai
