Misl e jahan, aab e darya to la saani hai
Har qatra, har lams, hi jaavidaani hai

Barg o baar, baad o baaraan, zulmat e shab
Sham’a e shabistan, subh farozan, zindagani hai

Har shai ki jagah apni gul o khaar ko dekhiye
Khaaron ka chaman men hona hi nigahbaani hai

Sahil woh kya jo tamashayion ka yaar na ho
Aur sumundur jo na keh sakey, tughyani hai

Is qadar khud gharaz hai aaj insan, ‘sahil’
Ke bhoola hai rah e khuda ka naam to qurbaani hai

Ashok sawhny Sahil
