Har Qadam Duri-E-Manzil Hai Numayan Mujhse

Har qadam dūri-e-manzil hai numāyāñ mujh se

Merī raftār se bhāge hai bayābāñ mujh se

Dars-e-unvān-e-tamāshā ba-taġhāful ḳhush-tar

Hai nigah rishta-e-shīrāza-e-mizhgāñ mujh se

Vahshat-e-ātish-e-dil se shab-e-tanhā.ī meñ

Sūrat-e-dūd rahā saaya gurezāñ mujh se

Gham-e-ushshāq na ho sādgī-āmoz-e-butāñ

Kis qadar ḳhāna-e-ā.īna hai vīrāñ mujh se

Asar-e-ābla se jāda-e-sahrā-e-junūñ

Sūrat-e-rishta-e-gauhar hai charāġhāñ mujh se

Be-ḳhudī bistar-e-tamhīd-e-farāġhat ho jo

Pur hai saa.e kī tarah merā shabistāñ mujh se

Shauq-e-dīdār meñ gar tū mujhe gardan maare

Ho nigah misl-e-gul-e-shamā pareshāñ mujh se

Bekasī-hā-e-shab-e-hijr kī vahshat hai hai

Saaya ḳhurshīd-e-qayāmat meñ hai pinhāñ mujh se

Gardish-e-sāġhar-e-sad-jalva-e-rañgīñ tujh se

Aā.ina-dāri-e-yak-dīda-e-hairāñ mujh se

Nigah-e-garm se ek aag Tapaktī hai ‘asad’

Hai charāġhāñ ḳhas-o-ḳhāshāk-e-gulistāñ mujh se

Bastan-e-ahd-e-mohabbat hama nā-dānī thā

Chashm-e-nakushūda rahā uqda-e-paimāñ mujh se

Atish-afrozi-e-yak-shola-e-īmā tujh se

Chashmak-ārā.i-e-sad-shahr charāġhāñ mujh se…
