kaifi-azmi

Naya Husn

kitni rangin hai faza kitni hasin hai duniya

kitna sarshar hai zauq-e-chaman-arai aaj

is saliqe se sajai gai bazm-e-giti

tu bhi divar-e-ajanta se utar aai aaj

ru-numai ki ye saaat ye tahi-dasti-e-shauq

na chura sakta huun ankhen na mila sakta huun

pyaar saughat, vafa nazr, mohabbat tohfa

yahi daulat tire qadmon pe luta sakta huun

kab se takhil men larzan tha ye nazuk paikar

kab se khvabon men machalti thi javani teri

mere afsane ka unvan bani jaati hai

Dhal ke sanche men haqiqat ke kahani teri

marhale jhel ke nikhra hai mazaq-e-takhliq

sai-e-paiham ne diye hain ye khad-o-khal tujhe

zindagi chalti rahi kanton pe, angaron par

jab mili itni hasin, itni subuk chaal tujhe

tere qamat men hai insan ki bulandi ka vaqar

dukhatar-e-shahr hai, tahzib ka shahkar hai tu

ab na jhapkegi palak, ab na hatengi nazren

husn ka mere liye akhiri meaar hai tu

ye tira paikar-e-simin, ye gulabi saari

dast-e-mehnat ne shafaq ban ke udha di tujh ko

jis se mahrum hai fitrat ka jamal-e-rangin

tarbiyat ne vo latafat bhi sikha di tujh ko

agahi ne tiri baton men khilain kaliyan

ilm ne shakkarin lahje men nichode angur

dilrubai ka ye andaz kise aata tha

tu hai jis saans men nazdik usi saans men duur

ye latafat, ye nazakat, ye haya, ye shokhi

sau diye julte hain umDi hui zulmat ke khilaf

lab-e-shadab pe chhalki hui gulnar hansi

ik baghavat hai ye ain-e-jarahat ke khilaf

hausle jaag uthe soz-e-yaqin jaag utha

nigah-e-naz ke be-nam isharon ko salam

tu jahan rahti hai us arz-e-hasin par sajda

jin men tu milti hai un rah-guzaron ko salam

aa qarib aa ki ye juuda main pareshan kar duun

tishna-kami ko ghataon ka payam aa jaae

jis ke mathe se ubharti hain hazaron subhen

miri duniya men bhi aisi koi shaam aa jaae
