Nanha Qasid

tira nanha sa qasid jo tire khat le kar aata tha

na tha maalum use kis tarah ke paigham laata tha

samajh sakta na tha vo khat men kaise raaz pinhan hain

huruf-e-sada men kis hashr ke andaz pinhan hain

use kya ilm in rangin lifafon men chhupa kya hai

kisi mahvash ka in ke bhejne se muddaa kya hai

magar mujh ko khayal aata tha akasr us zamane men

ki us ki hairat-e-tifli hai kyuun gum us fasane men

vo bain kam-sini kya ye na dil men sochta hoga

ki baaji ne hamari apne khat men kya likha hoga

aur akhir vo usi ko naama likh kar bhejti kyuun hain

kabhi bheja to bheja lekin akasr bhejti kyuun hain

vo pahle se ziyada bhaai ko kyuun pyaar karti hain

lifafa de ke lutf-e-khas ka izhar karti hain

phir aaise ajnabi par us ki baaji mehrban kyuun hain

agar hain bhi to ghar valon se ye baten nihan kyuun hain

aur us ke shubhe ki is se bhi to taid hoti hai

chhupa kar khat ko le jaane ki kyuun takid hoti hai?

ye nau-khez ajnabi jaane kahan se akasr aata hai

jab aata hai to baaji ki tarah khat likh ke laata hai

azizon ki tarah ye kyuun makan men aa nahin sakta

jab us se puchhta hai vo use samjha nahin sakta

khilaune de kar us ko muskura deta hai vo akasr

aur ik halka sa thappad bhi laga deta hai vo akasr

tire qasid ke ye afkar dil ko gudgudate the

aur apne bholpan se mere jazbon ko hansate the

nahin mauquf inhi ayyam par jab bhi khayal aaya

tasavvur tere baad us ka bhi naqsha samne laaya

magar aaj is tarah dekha hai vo naqsh-e-hasin main ne

ki rakh di khak-e-hairat par mohabbat ki jabin main ne

vahi nanha sa qasid naujavan ho kar mila mujh ko

zamane ke taghayyur ne pareshan kar diya mujh ko

junun-e-ibtida-e-ishq ne karvat si li dil men

pas-az muddat ye le ke aa gai phir apne muhmal men

tire qasid se milte vaqt mujh ko sharm aati thi

magar us ki nigahon men shararat muskurati thi

shararat ka ye nazzara miri hairat ka saman tha

ki is parda ke andar tera raz-e-ishq uryan tha
