  • Ghazal


tum kab the qarib itne main kab dur raha hun


tum kab the qarīb itne maiñ kab duur rahā huuñ
chhoḌo na karo baat ki maiñ tum se ḳhafā huuñ

rahne do ki ab tum bhī mujhe paḌh na sakoge
barsāt meñ kāġhaz kī tarah bhiig gayā huuñ

sau baar girah de ke kisī aas ne joḌā
sau baar maiñ dhāge kī tarah TuuT chukā huuñ

jā.egā jahāñ tū mirī āvāz sunegā
maiñ chor kī mānind tire dil meñ chhupā huuñ

ik nuqte pe aa kar bhī ham-āhañg nahīñ haiñ
tū apnā fasāna hai to maiñ apnī sadā huuñ

chheḌo na abhī shāḳh-e-shikasta kā fasāna
Thahro maiñ abhī raqs-e-sabā dekh rahā huuñ

manzil kā patā jis ne diyā thā mujhe 'bāqī'
us shaḳhs se raste meñ ka.ī baar milā huuñ

tum kab the qarib itne main kab dur raha hun
chhoDo na karo baat ki main tum se KHafa hun

rahne do ki ab tum bhi mujhe paDh na sakoge
barsat mein kaghaz ki tarah bhig gaya hun

sau bar girah de ke kisi aas ne joDa
sau bar main dhage ki tarah TuT chuka hun

jaega jahan tu meri aawaz sunega
main chor ki manind tere dil mein chhupa hun

ek nuqte pe aa kar bhi ham-ahang nahin hain
tu apna fasana hai to main apni sada hun

chheDo na abhi shaKH-e-shikasta ka fasana
Thahro main abhi raqs-e-saba dekh raha hun

manzil ka pata jis ne diya tha mujhe 'baqi'
us shaKHs se raste mein kai bar mila hun
