ruh jismon se bahar bhaTakti rahi

ruh jismon se bahar bhatakti rahi
zakhmi yaadon ko aanchal se dhakti rahi
mere hathon mein thin gard ki chadaren
zindagi thi ke daman jhatakti rahi
chandni mein hasin zahr ghulta raha
sar ko marmar pe nagin patakti rahi
main ghataon se khud ko bachati rahi
tegh bijli ki sar pe latakti rahi
mere honton ko kab mil saki bansuri
sans 'zarrin' labon pe atakti rahi
