Dahr Mein Naqsh-E-Wafa Wajah-E-Tasalli Na Hua

Dahr meñ naqsh-e-vafā vajhe-tasallī na huā

Hai ye vo lafz ki sharminda-e-manī na huā

Sabza-e-ḳhat se tirā kākul-e-sarkash na dabā

Ye zamurrad bhī harīf-e-dam-e-afī na huā

Maiñ ne chāhā thā ki andoh-e-vafā se Chhūtūñ

Vo sitamgar mire marne pe bhī Raazī na huā

Dil guzargāh-e-ḳhayāl-e-mai-o-Sāġhar hī sahī

Gar nafas jāda-e-sar-manzil-e-Taqvī na huā

Huñ tire va.ada na karne meñ bhī Raazī ki kabhī

Gosh minnat-kash-e-gulbāñg-e-tasallī na huā

Kis se mahrūmī-e-qismat kī shikāyat kiije

Ham ne chāhā thā ki mar jaa.eñ so vo bhī na huā

Mar gayā sadma-e-yak-jumbish-e-lab se ‘Ghālib’

Nā-tavānī se harīf-e-dam-e-īsī na huā

Na huī ham se raqam hairat-e-ḳhatt-e-ruḳh-e-yār

Safha-e.ā.ina jaulāñ-gah-e-tūtī na huā

E-rahmat-e-haq dekh ki Baḳhshā jaave

Mujh sā kāfir ki jo mamnūn-e-ma.āsī na huā….
