shabnam …

partav-e-khur se hai shabnam ko fanaa ki taaleem
maiN bhee hooN ik inaayat ki nazar hone tak

[partav-e-khur = sun’s reflection, shabnam = dew, fanaa = mortality, inaayat = favour ]

GHam-e-hastee ka Asad kis-se ho juz-marg ilaaz
shammaa har rang meiN jaltee hai sahar hone tak

[ hastee = life/existence, juz-marg = till death, sahar = morning ]
