Man Ka Khwab

mai.n soii jo ik shab to dekhaa ye Khvaab

ba.Dhaa aur jis se miraa iztiraab

ye dekhaa ki mai.n jaa rahii huu.n kahii.n

a.ndheraa hai aur raah miltii nahii.n

laraztaa thaa Dar se miraa baal baal

qadam kaa thaa dahshat se uthnaa muhaal

jo kuchh hausla paa ke aage ba.Dhii

to dekhaa qataar ek la.Dko.n kii thii

zamurrad sii poshaak pahne hue

diye sab ke haatho.n me.n jalte hue

vo chup-chaap the aage piichhe ravaa.n

Khudaa jaane jaanaa thaa un ko kahaa.n

isii soch me.n thii ki meraa pisar

mujhe is jamaaat me.n aayaa nazar

vo piichhe thaa aur tez chaltaa na thaa

diyaa us ke haatho.n me.n jaltaa na thaa

kahaa mai.n ne pahchaan kar merii jaa.n

mujhe chho.D kar aa gae tum kahaa.n

judaaii me.n rahtii huu.n mai.n be-qaraar

pirotii huu.n har roz ashko.n ke haar

na parvaa hamaarii zaraa tum ne kii

gae chho.D achchhii vafaa tum ne kii

jo bachche ne dekhaa miraa pech-o-taab

diyaa us ne mu.nh pher kar yuu.n javaab

rulaatii hai tujh ko judaaii mirii

nahii.n is me.n kuchh bhii bhalaaii mirii

ye kah kar vo kuchh der tak chup rahaa

diyaa phir dikhaa kar ye kahne lagaa

samajhtii hai tuu ho gayaa kyaa ise?

tire aa.n.suo.n ne bujhaayaa ise!
