ahmad-faraz

Ban-Bas

mere shahr ke saare raste band hain logo

main is shahr ka naghma-gar

jo do ik mausam ghurbat ke dukh jhel ke aaya

taaki apne ghar ki divaron se

apni thaki hui aur tarsi hui

ankhen sahlaun

apne darvaze ke utarte roghan ko

apne ashkon se saiqal kar luun

apne chaman ke jale hue paudon

aur gard-alud darakhton ki

murda shakhon par bain karun

har mahjur sutun ko itna tuut ke chumun

mere labon ke khuun se

un ke naqsh-o-nigar sabhi ji uthen

gali ke logon ko itna dekhun

itna dekhun

meri ankhen

barson ki tarsi hui ankhen

chehron ke angan ban jaaen

phir main apna saaz uthaun

ansuon aur muskanon se jhilmil jhilmil

nazmen ghazlen giit sunaun

apne pyaron

dard ke maron ka darman ban jaun

lekin mere shahr ke saare raston par

ab baad hai lohe ke kanton ki

shah darvaze par kuchh pahre-dar khade hain

jo mujh se aur mujh jaise dil valon ki

pahchan se aari

mere saaz se

sanginon se baat karen

main un se kahta huun

dekho

main is shahr ka naghma-gar huun

barson baad kadi rahon ki

saari aziyyat jhel ke ab vapas aaya huun

us mitti ki khatir

jis ki khushbuen

duniya bhar ki do-shizaon ke jismon ki mahkon se

aur saare jahan ke

sabhi gulabon se

badh kar hai

mujh ko shahr men

mere shahr men jaane do

lekin tane hue nezon ne

mere jism ko yuun barmaya

mere saaz ko yuun rezaya

mera humakta khuun aur mere sisakte naghme

shah-darvaze ki dahliz se

riste riste

shahr ke andar ja pahunche hain

aur main apne jism ka malba

saaz ka lasha

apne shahr ke shah-darvaze

ki dahliz pe chhod ke

phir anjane shahron ki shahrahon par

majbur-e-safar huun

jin ko taj kar ghar aaya tha

jin ko taj kar ghar aaya tha
