ahmad-faraz

Kar Gae Kuch Kahan

itni muddat dil-e-avara kahan tha ki tujhe

apne hi ghar ke dar-o-bam bhula baithe hain

yaad yaron ne to kab harf-e-mohabbat rakkha

ghair bhi taana o dushnam bhula baithe hain

to samajhta tha ki ye dar-badari ka aalam

duur deson ki inayat tha so ab khatm hua

tu ne jaana tha ki ashufta-sari ka mausam

dasht-e-ghurbat ki vadiat tha so ab khatm hua

ab jo tu shahr-e-nigaran men qadam rakkhega

har taraf khilte chale jaenge chehron ke gulab

dost-ahbab tire naam ke takraenge jaam

ghair-aghyar chukaenge raqabat ke hisab

jab bhi gaegi koi ghairat-e-nahid ghazal

sab ko aaega nazar shoala-e-avaz men tu

jab bhi saaqi ne surahi ko diya izn-e-khiram

bazm ki bazm pukaregi ki aghaz men tu

maaen rakkhengi tire naam pe aulad ka naam

baap beton ke liye teri bayazen lenge

jin pe qadghan hai vo ashar padhegi khilqat

aur tuute hue dil tujh ko salami denge

log ulfat ke khilaune liye bachchon ki tarah

kal ke ruthe hue yaron ko mana laenge

lafz ko bechne vaale nae bazaron men

ghairat harf ko laate hue sharmaenge

lekin aisa nahin aisa nahin ai dil ai dil

ye tira des ye tere dar-o-divar nahin

itne yusuf to na the misr ke bazar men bhi

jins is darja hai vafir ki kharidar nahin

sar kisi ka bhi dikhai nahin deta hai yahan

jism hi jism hain dastaren hi dastaren hain

tu kisi qarya-e-zindan men hai shayad ki jahan

tauq hi tauq hain divaren hi divaren hain

ab na tiflan ko khabar hai kisi divane ki

aur na avaz ki ”o chaak gareban vale”

na kisi haath men patthar na kisi haath men phuul

kar gae kuuch kahan kucha-e-janan vaale
