Maine Yun dekha Use Jaise Kabhi dekha Na Tha

main ne yuun dekha use jaise kabhi dekha na tha

aur jab dekha to ankhon par yaqin aata na tha

bam-o-dar se saḳht barish men bhi uTThega dhuan

yuun bhi hota hai mohabbat men kabhi socha na tha

andhiyon ko rauzan-e-zindan se ham dekha kiye

duur tak phaila hua sahra tha naqsh-e-pa na tha

log laae hain kahan se shab ko marmar ke charagh

un chaTanon men to din ko rasta paida na tha

shahr ki hangama-arai men kho kar rah gaya

main ki apne ghar men bhi mujh ko sukun milta na tha

barf apne-ap ghul jaati hai suraj ho na ho

shaam se pahle ye jaana tha magar samjha na tha

un dinon bhi shahr men sailab aate the bahut

vadiyon men jab kahin badal abhi barsa na tha

raat ki tanhaiyon men jis se chaunk uTThe the ham

apni hi avaz thi sho.ala koi chamka na tha

vo bhi sach kahte hain ‘aḳhtar’ log begane hue

ham bhi sachche hain ki duniya ka chalan aisa na tha
