agar hai jazba-e-tamir zinda

agar hai jazba-e-tamir zinda
to phir kis chiz ki hum mein kami hai

jahan se phul tuta tha wahin se
kali si ek numayan ho rahi hai

jahan bijli giri thi ab wahi shakh
nae patte pahan kar tan gai hai

khizan se ruk saka kab mausam-e-gul
yahi asl-e-usul-e-zindagi hai

agar hai jazba-e-tamir zinda
khandar se kal jahan bikhre pade the

wahin se aaj aiwan uth rahe hain
jahan kal zindagi mabhut si thi

wahin par aaj naghme gunjte hain
ye sannate se li hai samt-e-hijrat

yahi asl-e-usul-e-zindagi hai
agar hai jazba-e-tamir zinda

to phir kis chiz ki hum mein kami hai
rahe yakh-bastagi ka khauf jab tak

shuaen barf par larzan rahengi
na dhire jam nahin paenge jab tak

charaghon ki lawen raqsan rahengi
bashar ki apni hi taqdir se jang

yahi asl-e-usul-e-zindagi hai
agar hai jazba-e-tamir zinda

to phir kis chiz ki hum mein kami hai
