Shaam-e-firaq ab naa poonch, aaii aur aakae tal gayi
Dil tha ke fir bahal gya, jaan thi ke sambhal gayi.

Bazm-e-khyaal main, tere husn ki, sham, jal gayi
Derd ka chaand bujh gaya, hijra ki raat dhal gayi.

Jab tujhe yaad ker liya, subeh mahek-mahek uthi
Jab tera gam jaga liya, raat machal-machal gayi.

Dil se to her muaamla kerke chale the saaf hum
Kahne main unke saamne baat badal-badal gayi.

Aakhir -e-shab ke humsafer 'Faiz' na jaane kya hue
Rah gayi kis jagah sabaa, subeh kidher nikaal gayi.
