Ye Din

yahi din to azal se meri qismat tha

magar ankhon men sahra ne bhari vo ret

sab tarik lagta tha

main kitne hi sarabon aur azabon se thi guzri

khushk honton par duaen bhi nahin thiin

abhi to asman dekha tha main ne

nishan tak bhi nahin tha badalon ka

ajab din hai

sar-e-sahra hai vo jal-thal

ki ham yuun

bhigte chhinte udate

muskurate manzaron ke aine men

dekhte hain aks

jo ankhon men khulte hain!

ragon men saaton ki

ek sarshari samai hai

yahi ik din to meri zindagi bhar ki kamai hai

isi ki kokh se ubhrenge

sad-ha muskurate din

bhula baithe vo saal o sin

ki jab is zindagi ko ek pal fursat nahin thi

aa ke mil leti

ye dekho! zindagi ne aaj khud aa ke pukara hai

yaqin hai

ab se har lamha hamara hai!
