Aata hai yaad mujhko guzra hua zamana

aata hay yaad mujhko guzra hua zamana
woh baagh ki baharein woh sabka chehchahana

aazadiyan kahan woh apnay ghoslay ki
apni khushi se aana apni khushi se jaana

lagti hay chot dil par aata hay yaad jis dam
shabnam kay aansuon par kaliyon ka muskurana

woh pyaari pyaari soorat woh kaamni si moorat
abaad jiskay dum say tha mera aashiyana

aati nahi sadaein uski mayray qafas mein
hoti mayri rihaai ay kaash mayray bus mein

kya badnaseeb hoon mayn ghar ko taras raha hoon
saathi to hain watan me mayn qaid mein parda hoon

aayi bahaar kaliyan phoolon kee hans rahi hain
mayn is andhayray ghar may qismat ko ro raha hoon

is qaid ka ilaahi dukhrda kisay sunao
dar hay yaheen qafas mein mayn gham say mar na jaon

jabse chaman chuta hay ye haal ho gaya hay
dil gham ko kha raha hay, gham dil ko kha raha hay

gaana isey samajh kar khush ho na sunne wale
dukhey hue dilon ki faryaad ye sada hay

azaad mujhko karday O qaid karnay walay
main bay-zabaan hoon qaidi tu chord kar dua lay

Allama Iqbal
