Loneliness

Phir koi aaya dile zaar! nahin koi nahin

rahroo hoga, kahin aur chalaa jaye ga

dhal chuki raat, bikharne laga taaroun ka ghubaar

larkharaane lage aewaanoun mein khwabeeda chiragh

so gayee raastaa tak tak ke har ik raahguzar

ajnabee khaak ne dhundlaa diye kadmoun ke suraagh

gal karo shamein, barhaa do me e meena o ayaagh

apne bekhwab kwaaroun to muqaffal karlo

ab yahaan koi nehin, koi nahin aaye ga

— Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Nuskha hai wafa.
