Restaurant

restaurant men saje hue hain kaise kaise chehre

qabron ke katbon par jaise masle masle sehre

ik sahib jo soch rahe hain pichhle ek pahar se

yuun lagte hain jaise bachcha ruuth aaya ho ghar se

kaafi ki pyali ko labon tak laaen to kaise laaen

baire tak se aankh mila kar baat jo na kar paaen

kitni sanjida baithi hai ye ahbab ki toli

kitne auj-e-balaghat par hai khamoshi ki boli

saari quvvat chuus chuki din bhar ki shahr-navardi

mathon men se jhank rahi hai marti dhuup ki zardi

lambi lambi palken jhapke ik sharmili bi-bi

balon ki tartib se jhalke zehn ki be-tartibi

shauhar ko dekhe to lajae laaj ko ot banae

har aane vaale par ik bharpur nazar daudaye

ik ladki aur tiin javan aae hain kase-kasae

sanvle ruup ko gore mulkon ka bahrup banae

baton men nakhvat baghon ki vahshat sahraon ki

ankhon ke chulhon men bhari hai raakh tamannaon ki

apni apni uljhan sab ki apni apni raae

sab ne aansu rok rakhe hain kaun kise bahlae

har shai par shak ho to jiina ek saza ban jaae

mehvar hi maujud na ho to gardish kis kaam aae

qahqahe jaise khali bartan ludhak ludhak kar tuten

bahsen jaise honton men se khuun ke chhinte chhuten

husn ka zikr karen yuun jaise andhi phuul khilae

fan ki baat karen yuun jaise baniya sher sunae

sukdi simti ruhen lekin jism hain dohre tihre

restaurant men saje hue hain kaise kaise chehre
