sajida-zaidi

Mi-Yaumil-Hisab

mujhe be-rahm hasti ke ziyan-khane men kyuun bheja gaya

kyuun halqa-e-zanjir men rakh di gaiin be-tabiyan meri

har ik manzar miri nazron ka juuya tha

farozan shakh-saron par hujum-e-rang-o-bu

udta hua bar-ravan

simab-pa maujen

saba ka raqs-e-be-parva

shab-e-mahtab ka afsun

mah-o-anjum ke raqsan daere

ru-e-shafaq

taban ufuq

dariyaon ki raftar

shab ke jagte asrar

sahra ka munavvar sina-e-uryan

tilism-e-be-karan ke khvab-gun saae

miri raton men misl-e-barq lahrae

sitaron ki tajalli men tha harf-e-kun ka afsana

bada faiyyaz tha fitrat ka kashana

kai sahra mire gam-e-tamanna ke shanasa the

vo harf-o-saut ki vaadi

vo zauq-e-sher ka jaada

vo irfan ke gurezan astanon par jabin-sai

vo danish ki pazirai

vo maani ki ghaneri chhanv men

zehn-e-rasa ka kashf vo

asrar ke parde ke pichhe

dil ki mahshar-khez avazen

dil ki mahshar-khez avazen

vo gham-ha-e-nihani se farozan zauq-e-binai

vo daman ka har ik khar-e-mughilan se ulajhna

tul-o-arz dasht-o-dariya paar kar jaana

vo har zarre men dharti ki sada sunna

vo har qatre ke aine men

nur-e-husn-e-mutlaq ka larazna

dil-e-nazar harf-o-hunar ka ek ho jaana

takallum justuju raftar-o-gham ka muddaa paana

koi isa-nafas deta tha nam-e-zist nazrana

larazta iltihab agahi se tha miri nazron ka paimana

gurezan saaton ke karvan ko kis ne pakda hai

nazar mahv-e-maal-e-dosh-o-farda hai

kai divar-o-saqaf-o-saiban ke munjamid chehre

kai unchi fasilen raah men haail

kai be-faiz kavish-ha-e-tanhai

kai be-mehriyan paikar be-mafhum pur-mail

kai tiron ne meri khema-gah-e-shaq ko cheda

kai tarkash hue is jism par khali

hui jaati hai razm-e-zindagani muzmahil ghayal

nishat-o-dard ki vo khosha-chini chhod di ham ne

anan-e-husn-e-imkan tod di ham ne

sukun shaam hai

bujhne lage saare ayagh-e-garm-raftari

shikasta-tar hasti ki tarah larzan hain

gird-o-pesh ke shab-tab nazare

vo saaat aan pahunchi hai

nigah-e-vapsin ke muntazir hain tutte taare

mujhe shayad himala ki falak-paimaiyan avaz deti hain

main apni maut se

in barf-zaron ki darakhshanda maayyat men milungi

tod dungi halqa-e-zanjir mahjuri
