yaad rakhte kis tarah qisse kahani log the

yaad rakhte kis tarah qisse kahani log the
wo yahan ke the nahin wo aasmani log the
sukhe pedon ki qataren roktin kab tak unhen
ud gae karte bhi kya barg-e-khizani log the
zindagi aankhon pe rakh kar hath pichhe chhup gai
darmiyan rah kar bhi sab ke aan-jahani log the
kal yahin par lahlahati thin hansi ki khetiyan
kal yahin par kaise kaise zafrani log the
tut kar bikhre hue hain qurbaton ke silsile
chhup gae jaane kahan jo darmiyani log the
khushk mitti ban gae to bundiyan nahla gain
aur hamein kya chahiye tha aag pani log the
