qateel-shifai

Aap-Biti

mere khvabon ke shabistan men ujala na karo

ki bahut duur savera nazar aata hai mujhe

chhap gae hain miri nazron se khad-o-khal-e-hayat

har taraf abr ghanera nazar aata hai mujhe

chand taare to kahan ab koi jugnu bhi nahin

kitna shaffaf andhera nazar aata hai mujhe

koi tabinda kiran yuun mire dil par lapki

jaise soe hue mazlum pe talvar uthe

kisi naghme ki sada guunj ke yuun tharrai

jaise tuuti hui pazeb se jhankar uthe

main ne palkon ko uthaya bhi to aansu paae

mujh se ab khaak javani ka koi baar uthe

tum ne raton men sitare to tatole honge

main ne raton men andhere hi andhere dekhe

tum ne khvabon ke paristan to sajae honge

main ne mahaul ke shab-rang pharere dekhe

tum ne ik taar ki jhankar to sun li hogi

main ne giton men udasi ke basere dekhe

mire gham-khvar mire dost tumhen kya maalum

zindagi maut ke manind guzari main ne

ek bigdi hui surat ke siva kuchh bhi na tha

jab bhi halat ki tasvir utari main ne

kisi aflak-nashin ne mujhe dhutkar diya

jab bhi roki hai muqaddar ki savari main ne

mire gham-khvar mire dost tumhen kya maalum!
