By

mujhe andhere mein be-shak bitha diya hota
magar charagh ki surat jala diya hota
na raushni koi aati mere taaqub mein
jo apne-ap ko main ne bujha diya hota
ye dard jism ke ya-rab bahut shadid lage
mujhe salib pe do pal sula diya hota
ye shukr hai ki mere pas tera gham to raha
wagarna zindagi ne to rula diya hota

khuli kitab ke safhe ulaTte rahte hain

By

khuli kitab ke safhe ulatte rahte hain
hawa chale na chale din palatte rahte hain
bas ek wahshat-e-manzil hai aur kuchh bhi nahin
ki chand sidhiyan chadhte utarte rahte hain
mujhe to roz kasauti pe dard kasta hai
ki jaan se jism ke bakhiye udhadte rahte hain
kabhi ruka nahin koi maqam-e-sahra mein
ki tile panw-tale se sarakte rahte hain
ye rotiyan hain ye sikke hain aur daere hain
ye ek duje ko din bhar pakadte rahte hain
bhare hain raat ke reze kuchh aise aankhon mein
ujala ho to hum aankhen jhapakte rahte hain

har ek gham nichoD ke har ek baras jiye

By

har ek gham nichod ke har ek baras jiye
do din ki zindagi mein hazaron baras jiye
sadiyon pe ikhtiyar nahin tha hamara dost
do chaar lamhe bas mein the do chaar bas jiye
sahra ke us taraf se gae sare karwan
sun sun ke hum to sirf sada-e-jaras jiye
honton mein le ke raat ke aanchal ka ek sira
aankhon pe rakh ke chand ke honton ka mas jiye
mahdud hain duaen mere ikhtiyar mein
har sans pur-sukun ho tu sau baras jiye

gulon ko sunna zara tum sadaen bheji hain

By

gulon ko sunna zara tum sadaen bheji hain
gulon ke hath bahut si duaen bheji hain
jo aaftab kabhi bhi ghurub hota nahin
hamara dil hai usi ki shuaen bheji hain
agar jalae tumhein bhi shifa mile shayad
ek aise dard ki tum ko shuaen bheji hain
tumhaari khushk si aankhen bhali nahin lagtin
wo sari chizen jo tum ko rulaen, bheji hain
siyah rang chamakti hui kanari hai
pahan lo achchhi lagengi ghataen bheji hain
tumhaare khwab se har shab lipat ke sote hain
sazaen bhej do hum ne khataen bheji hain
akela patta hawa mein bahut buland uda
zamin se panw uthao hawaen bheji hain

garm lashen girin fasilon se

By

garm lashen girin fasilon se
aasman bhar gaya hai chilon se
suli chadhne lagi hai khamoshi
log aae hain sun ke milon se
kan mein aise utri sargoshi
barf phisli ho jaise tilon se
gunj kar aise lautti hai sada
koi puchhe hazaron milon se
pyas bharti rahi mere andar
aankh hatti nahin thi jhilon se
log kandhe badal badal ke chale
ghat pahunche bade wasilon se

dikhai dete hain dhund mein jaise sae koi

By

dikhai dete hain dhund mein jaise sae koi
magar bulane se waqt laute na aae koi
mere mohalle ka aasman suna ho gaya hai
bulandiyon pe ab aa ke peche ladae koi
wo zard patte jo ped se tut kar gire the
kahan gae bahte paniyon mein bulae koi
zaif bargad ke hath mein rasha aa gaya hai
jataen aankhon pe gir rahi hain uthae koi
mazar pe khol kar gireban duaen mangen
jo aae ab ke to laut kar phir na jae koi
