nang-e-ehsas hai andoh-e-gharib-ul-watani

nang-e-ehsas hai andoh-e-gharib-ul-watani
kam nahin gard-e-rah-e-shauq ki saya-fagani

aadmi hota hai khud apne hi teshe ka shikar
koi aasan nahin mashghala-e-koh-kani

partaw-e-rukh se tere kis ko nahin hairani
ashk-e-aina hui hai teri simin-badni

sumbulistan hain tere gesu-e-pur-kham ke asir
husn-e-qamat hai tera nazish-e-sarw-e-chamni

apne jame mein samati nahin phulon ki bahaar
dil mein kanton ke khatakti hai ye gul-pairahani

dekh meri nigah-e-shauq ki manzar-tabi
mahw-e-hairat hai tere husn ki aaina-tani

kya koi gosh-bar-awaz hua hai 'asif'
lab-kushai pe hai majbur meri kam-sukhani
