chandni shab bhar Tahalti chhat pe tanha rah gai


chāñdnī shab bhar Tahaltī chhat pe tanhā rah ga.ī
pyaar kī har yād-e-rañgīñ be-sahārā ho ga.ī

josh dariyā kā banā thā qahr kashtī ke liye
bebasī meñ nā-tavāñ patvār rusvā ho ga.ī

dāstān-e-zindagī kī jab kiran ḳhāmosh thī
tab havā bhī sun ke chup saarā fasāna rah ga.ī

phuul patte jab chaman se dar-ba-dar hone lage
pur sakūñ sarsabz duniyā ban ke sahrā rah ga.ī

har galī meñ lutf kā dariyā ravāñ thā 'sāhnī'
merī ḳhvāhish aisī rut meñ phir bhī tanhā rah ga.ī

chandni shab bhar Tahalti chhat pe tanha rah gai
pyar ki har yaad-e-rangin be-sahaara ho gai

josh dariya ka bana tha qahr kashti ke liye
bebasi mein na-tawan patwar ruswa ho gai

dastan-e-zindagi ki jab kiran KHamosh thi
tab hawa bhi sun ke chup sara fasana rah gai

phul patte jab chaman se dar-ba-dar hone lage
pur sakun sarsabz duniya ban ke sahra rah gai

har gali mein lutf ka dariya rawan tha 'sahni'
meri KHwahish aisi rut mein phir bhi tanha rah gai
