Pahle Sal Ka Tohfa

suno

tum ne mujhe takmil ka ehsas bakhsha hai

ki tum is jism men pahli tamanna ka shagufa ho

magar yuun hai

ki meri kokh men kilkariyon ki karvaton se qabl

andeshe ki konpal phuut nikli hai

main aksar sochti thi ye akela ghar kabhi abad bhi hoga

main us an-dekhe mehman ki pazirai men kya kya khvab bhejungi

main taq-e-jan men kaise kaise gul-bute saja.ungi

main us ki ek ik jumbish pe izhar-o-bayan ke sab dariche khol kar

savan ke badal ki tarah

har rang men pagal hava ke saath har su phail ja.ungi

main ye bhi bhuul ja.ungi

ki us ik buund bhar rishte ke pichhe umr bhar ki sangsari hi muqaddar hai

main ye bhi bhuul ja.ungi

ki is hone ki lazzat aur zillat ne mujhe kya kya rulaya hai

main ye bhi bhuul jaana chahti thi

ki main kis jabr ke saae men pal kar

kaise andeshon ki chadar odh kar dahliz utri thi

ki main ne khud ko

bachpan aur javani ke gunahon ki hazaron lazzaton se

kis tarah mahrum rakkha hai

miri jaan main ye sab kuchh bhuul jaana chahti thi

main teri nannhi nannhi ungliyon ki konpalon ka lams pa kar raqs kar uthti

tiri kilkariyon ko soch kar tanhai men haule se muskati

magar yuun hai ki mere chaar su jo hashr barpa hai

bas ik khamosh matam ek be-avaz naala hai

main ankhen mundna chahun to ye kilkariyan

bhuke bilakte dard se behal bachche ki karahon men

badal jaati hain pal bhar men

miri muskan Dhal jaati hai

tanha dard ki maari thaki haari hui aurat ki aahon men

thaki haari hui aurat ki jis ki sard banhon men

apahij din sisakta hai

musalsal khana-jangi qahat-sali bhuuk ghurbat aur vabaen

jis ke darvaze pe dastak de rahi hain

jihalat aur nafrat sarhadon ki pasbani kar rahi hai

jahan kheton men bas barud ugta hai

saron par tab-kari dhuup ki chadar tani hai

thaki haari hui aurat jo malbe par khadi fariyad karte

ye kin abadiyon ko yaad karti hai

main ankhen mundna chahun to ye manzar rulata hai

miri jaan us ghadi tu jis bhi pahlu kasmasata hai

mira dil haul khata hai

mire charon taraf ik khud-faramoshi ka jangal hai

ghanim ankhen jamae aur hava-e-shauq pagal hai
