Ek Martaba

Itminaan ke gar do pal mile tumhe,
Toe chup ke se kahi baithkar socho yeh baat,
Kahan gayi wo tehzeeb, wo reet saare,
Jis ke bal par ye jahan chala karta tha.

Ek martaba zindagi ke taraf mudhkar dekho,
Dikhanaa chahti hai wo tumhe ek maseeha,
Kehna chahti hai ek gal aaj tumse,
Ki rehguzar hai hum, do pal hi humne jeeya.

Shab mei chaandni ki thandak ke neeche,
Kitaabo-nisaabo mein parhi hui mohabbat,
Dekhkar akasmaat yeh baat se dil ghabraayi,
Ki sahiba mirza ko mili kyu judaai.

Mashooqa har raat marrte hi rehte hain,
Raanjhey har roz bante hai jogi,
Sanu allah ne milaya kehte hai nischai hi,
Par ghutan ki zindagi jeete hai sabhi.

Jisne bhi ki justujoo, usay toe khuda mil gaya,
Humne socha chup rehtey hai, poocho humain kia mila,
Jiski thi jo aarzoo khuda ne poori ki har ek ki,
Unse hi poocho aakhir woh usse kia maangi.

Likhna sunaana toe chalte hi rahega,
Syaahi khatm ho jayegi dastaan nahi,
Par chup hone se pehle ik dafa ye sun lo,
Jahan tumne mujhe chhora tha, ab bhi hun main wahin.

  1. ek ek lamhe mein jeete jeete
    zindagi kitne tukro me bat gayi
    pata hi na chalaa…

    zameen ke daane chubte chubte
    asmaan ka rang kab badal gaya
    pata hi na chalaa…

    auro ki kahani sunte sunte
    khud kab ek kahani ban gaya
    pata hi na chalaa…

    yun to raddi ke kagaz
    ya dhul se lapete kachre se behtar
    meri ye zindagi na thi na hai

    phir bhi yehi kahunga
    aye zindagi – tu behad khubsurat hai
    tu behad khubsurat hai…!
