Khwabon Ke Byopari

ham khvabon ke byopari the

par is men hua nuqsan bada

kuchh bakht men Dheron kalak thi

kuchh ab ke ghazab ka kaal pada

ham raakh liye hain jholi men

aur sar pe hai sahukar khada

yaan buund nahin hai deve men

vo baj-byaj ki baat kare

ham banjh zamin ko takte hain

vo Dhor anaaj ki baat kare

ham kuchh din ki mohlat mangen

vo aaj hi aaj ki baat kare

jab dharti sahra sahra thi

ham dariya dariya roe the

jab haath ki rekhaen chup thiin

aur sur sangit men soe the

tab ham ne jivan-kheti men

kuchh khvab anokhe boe the

kuchh khvab sajal muskanon ke

kuchh bol kabat divanon ke

kuchh lafz jinhen maani na mile

kuchh giit shikasta-janon ke

kuchh niir vafa ki shamon ke

kuchh par pagal parvanon ke

par apni ghayal ankhon se

khush ho ke lahu chhidkaya tha

maati men maas ki khaad bhari

aur nas nas ko zakhamaya tha

aur bhuul gae pichhli rut men

kya khoya tha kya paaya tha

har baar gagan ne vahm diya

ab ke barkha jab aaegi

har biij se konpal phutegi

aur har konpal phal laegi

sar par chhaya chhatri hogi

aur dhuup ghata ban jaegi

jab fasl kati to kya dekha

kuchh dard ke tuute gajre the

kuchh zakhmi khvab the kanton par

kuchh khakistar se kajre the

aur duur ufuq ke sagar men

kuchh Dolte Dubte bajre the

ab paanv khadaun dhul-bhari

aur jism pe jog ka chola hai

sab sangi sathi bhed-bhare

koi maasa hai koi tola hai

is taak men ye is ghaat men vo

har or thagon ka tola hai

ab ghaat na ghar dahliz na dar

ab paas raha hai kya baaba

bas tan ki gathri baaqi hai

ja ye bhi tu le ja baaba

ham basti chhode jaate hain

tu apna qarz chuka baaba
