aag pani se darta hua main hi tha0
aankh mein dahshat na thi hath mein khanjar na tha0
aaya hai ek shakhs ajab aan-ban ka0
ab ke barsat mein pani aae0
abhi to aur bhi din barishon ke aane the0
achanak teri yaad ka silsila0
achchhe din kab aaenge2
aisa hua nahin hai par aisa na ho kahin0
aur bazar se kya le jaun3
aur koi chaara na tha aur koi surat na thi0
barson ghisa-pita hua darwaza chhod kar0
bina murghe ke par jhatakti hain0
chaak kar lo agar gireban hai0
chand ki kagar raushan0
dawa koi kya kaam likhun0
dhup mein sab rang gahre ho gae0
dhup ne guzarish ki0
din bhar ke dahakte hue suraj se lada hun0
din ek ke baad ek guzarte hue bhi dekh0
din mein pariyan kyun aati hain0
dukh ka ehsas na mara jae0
ek ladka tha ek ladki thi0
ghar ne apna hosh sambhaala din nikla0
ghar se bahar kis bala ka shor tha0
girah mein rishwat ka mal rakhiye0
gulon ke darmiyan achchhi lagi hain0
har ek jhonka nukila ho gaya hai0
har-chand jagte hain pa soe hue se hain0
hazaron lakhon dilli mein makan hain0
hua chali to mere jism ne kaha mujhko0
idhar raha hun udhar raha hun0
irada hai kisi jangal mein ja rahunga main0
is shahr mein kahin pe hamara makan bhi ho0
isko baat ka panw na sar0
jate jate dekhna patthar mein jaan rakh jaunga0
jati hui ladki ko sada dena chahiye0
kabhi to aisa bhi ho rah bhul jaun main0
kabhi tujhse aisa bhi yarana tha0
kal raat jagmagata hua chand dekh kar0
kal raat suni chhat pe ajab saneha hua0
khidkiyon se jhank kar galiyon mein dar dekha kiye0
khwab mein ek makan dekha tha0
kitna hasin tha tu kabhi kuchh khayal kar0
koi band-baja sa kanon mein tha0
koi mausam ho bhale lagte the0
kuchh to is dil ko saza di jae0
kya kahte kya ji mein tha0
labon par yunhi si hansi bhej de0
main apna nam tere jism par likha dekhun0
main apne aap se darne laga tha0
munh-zabani quran padhte the0
na jaane dil kahan rahne laga hai0
nind raaton ki uda dete hain0
office mein bhi ghar ko khula pata hun main0
padh ke hairan hun khabar akhbar mein0
raat ke munh par ujala chahiye0
raat mili tanhai mili aur jam mila0
raat pade ghar jaana hai0
raushni kuchh to mile jangal mein0
sach hai ki wo bura tha har ek se lada kiya0
sach kahan kahta hai jaane wala0
safar mein sochte rahte hain chhanw aae kahin0
sardi mein din sard mila0
satwin manzil se kuda chahiye0
shagun le kar na kyun ghar se chala main0
shanti ki dukanen kholi hain0
sharife ke darakhton mein chhupa ghar dekh leta hun1
sher to sab kahte hain kya hai0
shor sahil ka samundar mein na tha0
sochte rahte hain aksar raat mein0
sote sote achanak gali dar gai0
sukhane baal hi kothe pe aa gae hote0
thodi sardi zara sa nazla hai0
tisri aankh khulegi to dikhai dega0
use na dekh ke dekha to kya mila mujhko0
uthi kuchh aise badan ki khushbu0
uthte hue qadmon ki dhamak aane lagi hai0
wo din kitna achchha tha0
wo mere sath aane pe tayyar ho gaya0
yakka ulat ke rah gaya ghoda bhadak gaya0
yar aaj maine bhi ek kamal karna hai0
yun to kam kam thi mohabbat uski0
yunhi hum par sab ke ehsan hain bahut0
zamin kahin bhi na thi chaar-su samundar tha0
zamin logon se dar gai hai0
