wo harf-e-tanha

hamare aaza jo aasman ki taraf dua ke liye uthe hain
(tum aasman ki taraf na dekho!)

maqam-e-nazuk pe zarb-e-kari se jaan bachane ka hai wasila
ki apni mahrumiyon se chhupne ka ek hila?

buzurg-o-bartar khuda kabhi to (bahisht-e-bar-haq)
hamein khuda se najat dega

ki hum hain is sarzamin pe jaise wo harf-e-tanha
(magar wo aisa jahan na hoga) khamosh o goya

jo aarzu-e-visal-e-mani mein ji raha ho
jo harf-e-mani ki yak-dili ko taras gaya ho

hamein muarra ke khwab de do
(ki sab ko bakhshen ba-qadr-e-zauq-e-nigah tabassum)

hamein muarra ki ruh ka iztirab de do
(jahan gunahon ke hausle se mile taqaddus ke dukh ka marham)

ki us ki be-nur-o-tar aanhken
darun-e-adam ki tera raaton

ko chhedti thin
usi jahan mein firaq-e-jaan-kah-e-harf-o-mani

ko dekhti thin
bahisht us ke liye wo masum sada-lauhon ki aafiyat tha

jahan wo nange badan pe jabir ke taziyanon se bach ke
rah-e-farar paen

wo kafsh-e-pa tha ki jis se ghurbat ki reg-e-baryan
se roz-e-fursat qarar paen

ki sulb-e-adam ki rahm-e-hawwa ki uzlaton mein
nihayat-e-intizar paen!

(bahisht sifr-e-azim lekin hamein wo gum-gashta hindse hain
baghair jin ke koi musawat kya banegi

visal-e-mani se harf ki baat kya banegi?)
hum is zamin par azal se pirana-sar hain mana

magar abhi tak hain dil tawana
aur apni zulida-kariyon ke tufail dana

hamein muarra ke khwab de do
(bahisht mein bhi nashat yak-rang ho to gham hai

ho ek sa jam-e-shahd sab ke liye to sam hai)
ki hum abhi tak hain is jahan mein wo harf-e-tanha

(bahisht rakh lo hamein khud apna jawab de do!)
jise tamanna-e-wasl-e-mana
