aaj ek lahr bhi pani mein na thi2
aaj to rone ko ji ho jaise0
aasman ka sard sannata pighalta jaega0
ai lamho main kyun lamha-e-larzan hun batao0
ajib tajraba tha bhid se guzarne ka0
aks koi kisi manzar mein na tha0
ali-bin-muttaqi roya0
bahut kuchh muntazir ek baat ka tha0
bajae ham-safri itna rabta hai bahut0
chali dagar par kabhi na chalne wala main0
chand ki awwal kiran manzar-ba-manzar aaegi0
chhupi hai tujh mein koi shai use na ghaarat kar0
damak raha tha bahut yun to pairahan us ka0
dekhta tha main palat kar har aan0
dil mein khushbu si utar jati hai sine mein nur sa dhal jata hai0
dilon mein khak si udti hai kya na jaane kya0
din ko daftar mein akela shab bhare ghar mein akela2
dosto kya hai takalluf mujhe sar dene mein0
ek dher rakh mein se sharar chun raha hun main0
ek gul-e-tar bhi sharar se nikla0
faza ki phir aasman bhar thi2
ghaeb har manzar mera0
ghani-ghaneri raat mein darne wala main0
hamein lapakti hawa par sawar le aai0
hari sunahri khak udane wala main0
hum hain manzar siyah aasmanon ka hai0
idhar ki aaegi ek rau udhar ki aaegi0
kahan talash karun ab ufuq kahani ka0
khak o khun ki wusaton se ba-khabar karti hui2
koi bhuli hui shai taq-e-har-manzar pe rakkhi thi0
libas us ka alamat ki tarah tha2
main chup khada tha talluq mein ikhtisar jo tha2
main uski baat ki tardid karne wala tha0
mast udte parindon ko aawaz mat do ki dar jaenge0
mehrab na qindil na asrar na tamsil0
mere badan mein pighalta hua sa kuchh to hai0
mod tha kaisa tujhe tha khone wala main0
mujhe pata tha ki ye hadsa bhi hona tha0
mujhse ek ik qadam par bichhadta hua kaun tha0
na jaane kal hon kahan sath ab hawa ke hain0
na manzilen thin na kuchh dil mein tha na sar mein tha0
paiham mauj-e-imkani mein2
phir wahi tu sath mere phir wahi basti purani0
pi chuke the zahr-e-gham khasta-jaan pade the hum chain tha0
qadam zamin pe na the rah hum badalte kya0
rahi na yaro aakhir sakat hawaon mein0
sada-e-dil ibaadat ki tarah thi0
sad-saughat sakun firdaus september aa0
safar hai mera apne dar ki taraf0
sair-e-shab-e-la-makan aur main2
sar-ba-sar ek chamakti hui talwar tha main0
shafaq shajar mausamon ke zewar nae nae se0
shoala idhar udhar kabhi saya yahin kahin0
siyah-khana-e-ummid-e-raegan se nikal0
tamam rasta phulon bhara hai mere liye0
tujhe zara dukh aur sisakne wala main0
wo baat baat pe ji bhar ke bolne wala0
wo jise ab tak samajhta tha main patthar, samne tha0
ye zara sa kuchh aur ek-dam be-hisab sa kuchh2
zaman makan the mere samne bikharte hue2
zara sa imkan kis qadar tha0
