Sal-Girah Ki Raat

aaj darvaze khule rahne do

yaad ki aag dahak utthi hai

shayad is raat hamare shohda aa jaaen

aaj darvaze khule rahne do

jante ho kabhi tanha nahin chalte hain shahid?

main ne dariya ke kinare jo pare dekhe hain

jo charaghon ki laven dekhin hain

vo laven bolti thiin zinda zabanon ki tarah

main ne sarhad pe vo naghmat sune hain ki jinhen

kaun gaega shahidon ke siva?

main ne honton pe tabassum ki nai tez chamak dekhi hai

nuur jis ka tha halavat se sharabor

azanon ki tarah!

abhi sarhad se main lauta huun abhi,

main abhi haanp raha huun mujhe dam lene do

raaz vo un ki nigahon men nazar aaya hai

jo hama-gir tha nadida zamanon ki tarah!

yaad ki aag dahak utthi hai

sab tamannaon ke shahron men dahak utthi hai

aaj darvaze khule rahne do

shayad is raat hamare shohda aa jaen!

vaqt ke paanv ulajh jaate hain avaz ki zanjiron se

un ki jhankar se khud vaqt jhanak uthta hai

naghma marta hai kabhi, naala bhi marta hai kabhi?

sansanahat kabhi jaati hai mohabbat ke bujhe tiron se?

main ne dariya ke kinare unhen yuun dekha hai

main ne jis aan men dekha hai unhen

shayad is raat,

is shaam hii,

darvazon pe dastak denge!

shohda itne subuk-pa hain ki jab aenge

na kisi soe parinde ko khabar tak hogi

na darakhton se kisi shakh ke girne ki sada gunjegi

phadphadahat kisi zambur ki bhi kam hi sunai degi

aaj darvaze khule rahne do!

abhi sarhad se main lauta huun abhi

paar jo guzregi us ka hamen gham hi kyuun ho?

paar kya guzregi maalum nahin

ek shab jis men

pareshani-e-alam se ruhon pe girani taari

ruhen sunsan yatim

un pe hamesha ki jafaen bhari

bu-e-kafur agar baste gharon se jaari

be-panah khauf men ruya-e-shikasta ki fughan utthegi

bujhti shamon ka dhuan utthega

paar jo guzregi maalum nahin

apne darvaze khule rahne do
