Ae Qaza thehar ja, unse kar lun zara ik haseen guftagoo Aakhari Aaakhri

our koi tamanna nahi ba-khuda, hai yahi aarzoo, akhri akhri

 

aansoon ki jo rut hai, badal jay gi, jaan aaraam se phir, nikal jay gi

pooch le ghar zara, haal haazaq mera, bayth kar ruuh baruuh, aakhri aakhri

 

mere ghar mein wo jis waqt aajay gein, unke daaman se pal pal lipat jay gein

saamne unke naino ko kar waayein ge, aasooun se wudu, aakhri aakhri

 

meri halat bazahir to kamzor hai, unke gham se badi saans ki dor hai

bohanch jao faqat unke qadmoun talaq, hai yahi justajoo, akhri akhri

 

isse pehle ke uth kar challe jaae wo, kissa’e’gham mukammal na sun pay wo

hosh kar be-khabar, waqt hai mukhtasar, bol de lafz tu, akhri akhri

 

unki basti mein le chal mujhe chaara ghar, dekhni hai wo galiyaan faqat ik nazar

chaahati hai nigah, unki ho baargah, dekhloun chaarsuu, akhri akhri

 

raat dhalte hi, yeh lafz ruk jay gi, tooth kar shaakh saansoun, ki jukh jay gi

aise lagta hai ab, to yeh hakim mujhe, hogi subho namoun, akhri akhri
