muKHtasar si wo mulaqat bahut achchhi thi

mukhtasar si wo mulaqat bahut achchhi thi
chand lafzon mein dhali baat bahut achchhi thi
lamha lamha kisi ummid pe jab guzra tha
din bahut khub tha wo raat bahut achchhi thi
be-qarari hi mein jab dil ko qarar aata tha
hae wo shiddat-e-jazbaat bahut achchhi thi
husn ke rang the har pahlu numayan jis mein
apni taswir-e-khayalat bahut achchhi thi
aankhen bhar aai thin milte ya bichhadte un se
donon waqton ki wo barsat bahut achchhi thi
chahna bhi unhen aur munh se na kuchh bhi kahna
dil ki khamosh munajat bahut achchhi thi
lab pe aa jati to kuchh aur bhi achchha tha 'rishi'
aap ke dil mein jo thi baat bahut achchhi thi

faqat jazbaat ko halchal na dena

faqat jazbaat ko halchal na dena
khushi dena to pal-do-pal na dena
hamara aaj hi ujla bana do
chalo hum ko sunahra kal na dena
buzurgon ki ye taswiren hain bachcho
siyahi un pe koi mal na dena
yunhi bahta rahun kalkal hamesha
main jharna hun mujhe jal-thal na dena
ise sona padega pattharon par
mere ehsas ko makhmal na dena
mere ahbab ko dena sabhi kuchh
mujhe chahe sukun ek pal na dena
dua meri khuda se hai 'rishi' ye
amal dena mujhe go phal na dena

aur na khaTka kar baba

aur na khatka kar baba
apne aap se dar baba
chhod chala jab ghar baba
dekh na ab mud kar baba
sab kuchh tere andar hai
kuchh bhi nahin bahar baba
ghum na yun kashkol liye
sabr se jholi bhar baba
ye jina kya jina hai
jina hai to mar baba
than liya so than liya
ab kya agar magar baba
baat 'rishi' ki man bhi le
sham hui chal ghar baba
