Qateel Shifai

Dur Tak Chhae The Baadal Aur Kahin Saya Na Tha

duur tak chhae the badal aur kahin saaya na tha

is tarah barsat ka mausam kabhi aaya na tha

surkh aahan par tapakti buund hai ab har khushi

zindagi ne yuun to pahle ham ko tarsaya na tha

kya mila akhir tujhe sayon ke pichhe bhaag kar

ai dil-e-nadan tujhe kya ham ne samjhaya na tha

uf ye sannata ki aahat tak na ho jis men mukhil

zindagi men is qadar ham ne sukun paaya na tha

khuub roe chhup ke ghar ki char-divari men ham

hal-e-dil kahne ke qabil koi ham-saya na tha

ho gae qallash jab se aas ki daulat luti

paas apne aur to koi bhi sarmaya na tha

vo payambar ho ki ashiq qatl-gah-e-shauq men

taaj kanton ka kise duniya ne pahnaya na tha

ab khula jhonkon ke pichhe chal rahi thiin andhiyan

ab jo manzar hai vo pahle to nazar aaya na tha

sirf khushbu ki kami thi ghaur ke qabil ‘qatil’

varna gulshan men koi bhi phuul murjhaya na tha
