dasht-e-tanhaai mein, ai jaan-e-jahaan, larzaan hain
teri avaaz ke saaye, tere honthon ke saraab dasht-e-tanhaai mein, duri ke khas-o-khaak talekhil rahe hain tere pehlu ke saman aur gulaabuht rahi hai kahin qurbat se teri saans ki aanch apani khushbuu mein sulagti hui maddham maddham
dur ufaq par chamakati hui qatra qatragir rahi hai teri dil daar nazar ki shabnam is qadar pyaar se hai jaan-e jahaan rakkhaa hai dil ke rukhsaar pe is vaqt teri yaad ne haathyun guman hota hai garche hai abhi subah-e-firaaqdhal gaya hijr ka din aa bhi gaye vasl ki raat
