Aadat 2

Raeth ke mehel banaa ke chain ab kahaan milega tujhe,
Jo samandaron mei doob ke motiyaan churaata hai.
Faqr se jeena tha aur ye kahaan theher gaya hai tu,
Ke aasmaan bhi tujhe bula raha hai, ja usse mil le.

Nadiyon ki dhaaraayein badal jayenge tu ik baar koshish toh kar,
Watanon ki seemaayein toot jayengi tu ik baar koshish toh kar,
Gaane kuch aise gungunaa, kavitaayein kuch aisi likh,
Ke jag aansoowon mei liptay agar, toh bhi saath mei liptay.

Kahaani adhoori hai jo, usay ek muqaam de kar ja,
Rehguzar ki tarah bhatakte aawaam ko, muqaam de kar ja,
Ke jitno ne ki iltija, rabb ne toh sab ki nahi suni,
Par jitne tujhse apni bayaan farmaate hai, unko muqaam de kar ja.

Sheeshe ke mehel mei raha tu, kisi ne phir bhi kabhi pathhar na uthaya,
Mehfuz jinke yaadon mei raha tu, unpe kisi ne aankh na uthayi,
Taqdeer mei likha tha kuch, kisi aur ko apnaaya tunay,
Khuda hai tu, ya insaan, tu hi bata.

Aadat hai mujhe aksar raaton ko sapnon mei udne ki,
Aadat hai mujhe aksar dinon mei khwaab bunnay ki,
Par tujhse mila toh yeh ehsaas hua hai mujhe,
Khwaab adhoore sahi, khwaab humaray toh hain.

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.
