Nafas Ambalvi

  • Ghazal


yun nahin tha ki tirgi kam thi


yuuñ nahīñ thā ki tīrgī kam thī
dhuup se apnī dostī kam thī

ḳhvāhishoñ ke hujūm the lekin
apne hisse meñ zindagī kam thī

tum na aa.e to bas huā itnā
kal charāġhoñ meñ raushnī kam thī

haañ vo hañs kar nahīñ milā phir bhī
us kī bātoñ meñ be-ruḳhī kam thī

ġham use bhī na thā bichhaḌne kā
merī āñkhoñ meñ bhī namī kam thī

kuchh taġhāful-mizāj thā saaqī
aur kuchh apnī pyaas bhī kam thī

us kā lahja to ḳhuub thā lekin
us ke sheroñ meñ shā.irī kam thī

kyuuñ mujhe de gayā vo sannāTe
kyā mire ghar meñ ḳhāmushī kam thī

yun nahin tha ki tirgi kam thi
dhup se apni dosti kam thi

KHwahishon ke hujum the lekin
apne hisse mein zindagi kam thi

tum na aae to bas hua itna
kal charaghon mein raushni kam thi

han wo hans kar nahin mila phir bhi
us ki baaton mein be-ruKHi kam thi

gham use bhi na tha bichhaDne ka
meri aankhon mein bhi nami kam thi

kuchh taghaful-mizaj tha saqi
aur kuchh apni pyas bhi kam thi

us ka lahja to KHub tha lekin
us ke sheron mein shairi kam thi

kyun mujhe de gaya wo sannaTe
kya mere ghar mein KHamushi kam thi
