akhtar-hoshiyarpuri

Jo Mujhko dekh Ke Kal Raat Ro Pada Tha Bahut

jo mujh ko dekh ke kal raat ro paḌa tha bahut

vo mera kuchh bhi na tha phir bhi ashna tha bahut

main ab bhi raat gae us ki guunj sunta huun

vo harf kam tha bahut kam magar sada tha bahut

zamin ke siine men suraj kahan se utre hain

falak pe duur koi baiTha sochta tha bahut

mujhe jo dekha to kaghaz ko purze purze kiya

vo apni shakl ke ḳhake bana raha tha bahut

main apne haath se nikla to phir kahin na mila

zamana mere ta.aqub men bhi gaya tha bahut

shikast-o-reḳht badan ki ab apne bas men nahin

use bata.un ki vo ramz-ashna tha bahut

bisat us ne ulaT di na jaane soch ke kya

abhi to logon men jiine ka hausla tha bahut

ajab sharik-e-safar tha ki jab paḌav kiya

vo mere paas na Thahra magar ruka tha bahut

sehr ke chak-e-gareban ko dekhne ke liye

vo shaḳhs sub.h talak shab ko jagta tha bahut

vo kam-suḳhan tha magar aisa kam-suḳhan bhi na tha

ki sach hi bolta tha jab bhi bolta tha bahut

hava ke lams se chehre pe phuul khilte the

vo chandni sa badan mauja-e-saba tha bahut

pas-e-daricha do ankhen chamakti rahti thiin

ki us ko niind men chalne ka ariza tha bahut

kahaniyon ki faza bhi use thi raas ‘aḳhtar’

haqiqaton se bhi ohda-bar-a hua tha bahut
