ahmad-faraz

Mujhse Pahle

mujh se pahle tujhe jis shakhs ne chaha us ne

shayad ab bhi tira gham dil se laga rakkha ho

ek be-nam si ummid pe ab bhi shayad

apne khvabon ke jaziron ko saja rakkha ho

main ne maana ki vo begana-e-paiman-e-vafa

kho chuka hai jo kisi aur ki raanai men

shayad ab laut ke aae na tiri mahfil men

aur koi dukh na rulae tujhe tanhai men

main ne maana ki shab o roz ke hangamon men

vaqt har gham ko bhula deta hai rafta rafta

chahe ummid ki shamen hon ki yadon ke charagh

mustaqil boad bujha deta hai rafta rafta

phir bhi maazi ka khayal aata hai gahe-gahe

muddaten dard ki lau kam to nahin kar saktin

zakhm bhar jaaen magar daagh to rah jaata hai

duriyon se kabhi yaden to nahin mar saktin

ye bhi mumkin hai ki ik din vo pashiman ho kar

tere paas aae zamane se kinara kar le

tu ki maasum bhi hai zud-faramosh bhi hai

us ki paiman-shikani ko bhi gavara kar le

aur main jis ne tujhe apna masiha samjha

ek zakhm aur bhi pahle ki tarah sah jaun

jis pe pahle bhi kai ahd-e-vafa tuute hain

isi do-rahe pe chup-chap khada rah jaun
