Jahan Katre Ko Tarsaya Geya Hun

Jahan Katre Ko Tarsaya Geya Hun;
Wahin Dooba Hua Paya Geya Hun;

Ba-Haal-e-Gham-Rahi Paya Geya Hun;
Haram Se Deir Mein Laya Geya Hun;

Balaa Kaafi Na Thi Ek Zindagi Kee;
Dobara Yaad Pharmaya Geya Hun;

Ba-Rang-e-Lala-e-Veerana Bekaar;
Khilaya Aur Murjhaya Geya Hun;

Agarche Abr-e-Gauhar-Baar Hun Main;
Magar Aankhon Se Barsaya Geya Hun;

‘Hafeez’ Ahal-e-Zubaan Kab Maante The;
Bade Zoron Se Manvaya Geya Hun!

Khoon Bar Kar Munasib Nahi Dil Bah

Khoon Bar Kar Munasib Nahi Dil Bahe;
Dil Nahi Maanta Kaun Dil Se Kahe;

Teri Duniya Mein Aaye Bahut Din Rahe;
Sukh Ye Paya Ki Hum Ne Bahut Dukh Sahe;

Bulbulein Gul Ke Aansu Nahi Chatati;
Un Ko Apni Hi Margoob Hain Chehchahe;

Aalam-e-Nazaa Mein Sun Raha Hun Mein Kya;
Ye Azizon Kee Cheekhe Hain Kya Kehkahe;

Is Naye Husn Kee Bhi Adaon Pe Hum;
Mar Mitenge Ba-Sharte Ke Zinda Rahe;

Tum ‘Hafeez’ Ab Ghisatne Kee Manzil Mein Ho;
Daur-e-Ayyaam Pahiya Hai Gham Hain Rahe!
