Ek Khwab

ek hi ḳhvab kai baar yunhi dekha main ne

tu ne saadi men udas li hain miri chabiyan ghar ki

aur chali aai hai bas yunhi mira haath pakad kar

ghar ki har chiiz sambhale hue apnae hue tu

tu mire paas mire ghar pe mire saath hai ‘sonun’

mez par phuul sajate hue dekha hai kai baar

aur bistar se kai baar jagaya bhi hai tujh ko

chalte-phirte tire qadmon ki vo aahat bhi suni hai

gungunati hui nikli hai ghusl-ḳhane se jab bhi

apne bhige hue balon se tapakta hua paani

mere chehre par chhidak deti hai tu ‘sonun’ ki bachchi

farsh par let gai hai tu kabhi ruuth ke mujh se

aur kabhi farsh se mujh ko bhi uthaya hai mana kar

taash ke patton pe ladti hai kabhi khel men mujh se

aur kabhi ladti bhi aise hai ki bas khel rahi hai

aur aghosh men nanhe ko

aur maalum hai jab dekha tha ye ḳhvab tumhara

apne bistar pe main us vaqt pada jaag raha tha
