Exactly 14 years ago I left the land for which Iqbal has said
zara num ho tou yeh mutti bari zarkhaiz hai saqi

Mein buhat dooor, buhat dooor nikal aaya hoon
Apni galyon ko, mohallon ko, maidaanon ko
subz-o-shadab magar veeraan mein kur aaya hoon
Is jism kay taaluq ko tou gur tour diya
rooh sey kub koyee lamha bhula paaya hoon
Mein jo hissa tha zarkhaiz haseen mutti ka
ajnabi aaj hoon taptey hoay sehraa-on mein
Kabhi jhonka tha usi baad-e-saba ka mein bhi
zinda rehna hai ab in nayee fazaon mein
Apney maazi sey biccharney ka mujhay ghum bhi hai
apney aayenda ki afkaar ka mousum bhi hai
Mujhay dekhnay waley khush tou hein
bhari daalyon ko dekh kur
Unhein kya pata kay yeh durukht
Kut chuka hai jaroun sey ab…
