MORE BYHaidar Ali Jafri

    na sar chhupāne ko ghar thā na āb-o-dāna thā

    zamāne bhar nigāhoñ maiñ nishāna thā

    bhulā na paayā use jis ko bhuul jaanā thā

    vafāoñ se mirā rishta bahut purānā thā

    jo aks-e-ġhair tābish meñ DhūñDtā thā jilā

    us ā.īne ko bikharnā thā TuuT jaanā thā

    darīche maazī ke khulne lage to yaad aayā

    yahīñ kahīñ kisī Daalī pe āshiyāna thā

    sile meñ kyā mujhe miltā jo aur ruk jaatā

    tire ḳhutūt ko ik roz to jalānā thā

    jahāñ pe tā.ir-e-fikr-e-suḳhan ke par silte

    vahīñ pe aql-o-ḳhirad nayā Thikānā thā

    lahū rañg chaTānoñ ke ābshāroñ meñ

    unheñ nasheb meñ dariyā-e-ḳhūñ bahānā thā

    qabā-e-surḳh siyah bādaloñ ne oḌhī thī

    kisī ke jurm se parda unheñ uThānā thā

    vo ek halke tabassum kaaT sah na sakā

    sitam vaar bhī kis darja buzdilāna thā

    tamām shorisheñ saffākiyāñ uruuj pe thiiñ

    bil-āḳhir un ko adālat se chhūT jaanā thā

    dukāñ lagā.e huuñ TuuTe hue khilaune

    ki bhūltā nahīñ bachpan bhī kyā zamāna thā

    na sar chhupane ko ghar tha na aab-o-dana tha

    zamane bhar ki nigahon ka main nishana tha

    bhula na paya use jis ko bhul jaana tha

    wafaon se mera rishta bahut purana tha

    jo aks-e-ghair ki tabish mein DhunDta tha jila

    us aaine ko bikharna tha TuT jaana tha

    dariche mazi ke khulne lage to yaad aaya

    yahin kahin kisi Dali pe aashiyana tha

    sile mein kya mujhe milta jo aur ruk jata

    tere KHutut ko ek roz to jalana tha

    jahan pe tair-e-fikr-e-suKHan ke par silte

    wahin pe aql-o-KHirad ka naya Thikana tha

    lahu ka rang chaTanon ke aabshaaron mein

    unhen nasheb mein dariya-e-KHun bahana tha

    qaba-e-surKH siyah baadalon ne oDhi thi

    kisi ke jurm se parda unhen uThana tha

    wo ek halke tabassum ki kaT sah na saka

    sitam ka war bhi kis darja buzdilana tha

    tamam shorishen saffakiyan uruj pe thin

    bil-aKHir un ko adalat se chhuT jaana tha

    dukan lagae hun TuTe hue khilaune ki

    ki bhulta nahin bachpan bhi kya zamana tha
