Abhi Hum Khub-Surat Hain

abhi ham khub-surat hain

hamare jism auraq-e-khizani ho gae hain

aur rida-e-zakhm se arasta hain

phir bhi dekho to

hamari khush-numai par koi harf

aur kashida-qamti men kham nahin aaya

hamare hont zahrili ruton se kasni hain

aur chehre ratjagon ki shoalagi se

abnusi ho chuke hain

aur zakhmi khvab

nadida jaziron ki zamin par

is tarah bikhre pade hain

jis tarah tufan-zada kashti ke tukdon ko

samundar sahilon par phenk deta hai

lahu ki barishen

ya khud-kushi ki khvahishen thiin

is aziyyat ke safar men

kaun sa mausam nahin aaya

magar ankhon men nam

lahje men sam

honton pe koi naghma-e-matam nahin aaya

abhi tak dil hamare

khanda-e-tiflan ki surat be-kudurat hain

abhi ham khub-surat hain

zamane ho gae

ham ku-e-janan chhod aae the

magar ab bhi

bahut se ashna na-ashna hamdam

aur un ki yaad ke manus qasid

aur un ki chahaton ke hijr-name

duur deson se hamari or aate hain

gulabi mausamon ki dhuup

jab naurasta sabze par qadam rakhti hui

ma.mura-e-tan men dar aati hai

tu barfani badan men

ju-e-khun ahistagi se gungunati hai

udasi ka parinda

chup ke jangal men

sar-e-shakh-e-nihal-e-gham chahakta hai

koi bhula hua bisra hua dukh

aabla bin kar tapakta hai

to yuun lagta hai

jaise harf apne

zinda avazon ki surat hain

abhi ham khub-surat hain

hamari khush-numai harf-e-haq ki ru-numai hai

usi khatir to ham ashufta-jan

ushshaq ki yadon men rahte hain

ki jo un par guzarti hai vo kahte hain

hamari harf-sazi

ab bhi mahbub-e-jahan hai

shaeri shorid-gan-e-ishq ke vird-e-zaban hai

aur gulabon ki tarah shadan chehre

laal o marjan ki tarah lab

sandalin hathon se

chahat aur aqidat ki bayazon par

hamare naam likhte hain

sabhi dard-ashna

isar mashrab

ham-nafas ahl-e-qafas

jab maqtalon ki samt jaate hain

hamare bait gaate hain

abhi tak naaz karte hain sab ahl-e-qafila

apne hudi-khvanon par ashufta-kalamon par

abhi ham dastakhat karte hain apne qatl-namon par

abhi ham asmanon ki amanat

aur zaminon ki zarurat hain

abhi ham khub-surat hain
