firaq-gorakhpuri

Aaj Bhi Qafila-E-Ishq Rawan Hai Ki Jo Tha

aaj bhi qafila-e-ishq ravan hai ki jo tha

vahi miil aur vahi sang-e-nishan hai ki jo tha

phir tira gham vahi rusva-e-jahan hai ki jo tha

phir fasana ba-hadis-e-digran hai ki jo tha

manzilen gard ke manind udi jaati hain

vahi andaz-e-jahan-e-guzaran hai ki jo tha

zulmat o nuur men kuchh bhi na mohabbat ko mila

aaj tak ek dhundalke ka saman hai ki jo tha

yuun to is daur men be-kaif si hai bazm-e-hayat

ek hangama sar-e-ritl-e-giran hai ki jo tha

laakh kar jaur-o-sitam laakh kar ehsan-o-karam

tujh pe ai dost vahi vahm-o-guman hai ki jo tha

aaj phir ishq do-alam se juda hota hai

astinon men liye kaun-o-makan hai ki jo tha

ishq afsurda nahin aaj bhi afsurda bahut

vahi kam kam asr-e-soz-e-nihan hai ki jo tha

nazar aa jaate hain tum ko to bahut nazuk baal

dil mira kya vahi ai shisha-giran hai ki jo tha

jaan de baithe the ik baar havas vaale bhi

phir vahi marhala-e-sud-o-ziyan hai ki jo tha

aaj bhi said-gah-e-ishq men husan-e-saffak

liye abru ki lachakti si kaman hai ki jo tha

phir tiri chashm-e-sukhan-sanj ne chhedi koi baat

vahi jaadu hai vahi husn-e-bayan hai ki jo tha

raat bhar husn par aae bhi gae sau sau rang

shaam se ishq abhi tak nigaran hai ki jo tha

jo bhi kar jaur-o-sitam jo bhi kar ehsan-o-karam

tujh pe ai dost vahi vahm-o-guman hai ki jo tha

aankh jhapki ki idhar khatm hua roz-e-visal

phir bhi is din pe qayamat ka guman hai ki jo tha

qurb hi kam hai na duuri hi ziyada lekin

aaj vo rabt ka ehsas kahan hai ki jo tha

tira-bakhti nahin jaati dil-e-sozan ki ‘firaq’

shama ke sar pe vahi aaj dhuan hai ki jo tha
