pur-shor talatum ka mudawa koi aahaT


pur-shor talātum kā mudāvā koī aahaT
sañgīn fazā meñ thī dilāsā koī aahaT

be-dard havāoñ ne hirāsāñ to kiyā thā
thī saath magar un ke shanāsā koī aahaT

jab kaalī ghaTā qahr kā sāmān banī thī
de kar ga.ī bijlī kā ujālā koī aahaT

goshe meñ tasavvur jahāñ bīmār paḌā thā
kartī thī mohabbat se ishāra koī aahaT

ḳhāmosh ḳhayāloñ ke qafas meñ tū paḌā rah
jāgegī nahīñ dar pe dobāra koī aahaT

sailāb ke narġhe meñ ghirī jab se tamannā
ik sapnā dikhātī hai suhānā koī aahaT

kartī hai kabhī ġhaiz kī bāñhoñ ko pakaḌ kar
bechain samundar meñ tamāshā koī aahaT

ik yaad kā āñchal jo uḌā tez havā meñ
dene lagī hamdard bulāvā koī aahaT

rahmat bharī āñkhoñ se zarā dekhnā 'ja.afar'
tūfān meñ DhūñDe hai sahārā koī aahaT

pur-shor talatum ka mudawa koi aahaT
sangin faza mein thi dilasa koi aahaT

be-dard hawaon ne hirasan to kiya tha
thi sath magar un ke shanasa koi aahaT

jab kali ghaTa qahr ka saman bani thi
de kar gai bijli ka ujala koi aahaT

goshe mein tasawwur jahan bimar paDa tha
karti thi mohabbat se ishaara koi aahaT

KHamosh KHayalon ke qafas mein tu paDa rah
jagegi nahin dar pe dobara koi aahaT

sailab ke narghe mein ghiri jab se tamanna
ek sapna dikhati hai suhana koi aahaT

karti hai kabhi ghaiz ki banhon ko pakaD kar
bechain samundar mein tamasha koi aahaT

ek yaad ka aanchal jo uDa tez hawa mein
dene lagi hamdard bulawa koi aahaT

rahmat bhari aankhon se zara dekhna 'jafar'
tufan mein DhunDe hai sahaara koi aahaT
