MORE BYYasmeen Hameed

    ik be-panāh raat tanhā javāb thā

    chhoTā ik diyā jo sar-e-ehtisāb thā

    rasta mirā tazād tasvīr ho gayā

    dariyā bhī bah rahā thā jahāñ par sarāb thā

    vo vaqt bhī ajiib thā hairān kar gayā

    vāzeh thā zindagī tarah aur ḳhvāb thā

    pahle paḌāv se use lauTnā paḌā

    lambī masāfatoñ se jise ijtināb thā

    phir be-numū zamīn thī aur ḳhushk the shajar

    be-abr āsmāñ chalan kāmyāb thā

    ik be-qayās baat se mansūb ho gayā

    phailā huā hurūf meñ jo iztirāb thā

    apnī nigāh par bhī karūñ e'tibār kyā

    kis maan par kahūñ vo mirā intiḳhāb thā

    ek be-panah raat ka tanha jawab tha

    chhoTa sa ek diya jo sar-e-ehtisab tha

    rasta mera tazad ki taswir ho gaya

    dariya bhi bah raha tha jahan par sarab tha

    wo waqt bhi ajib tha hairan kar gaya

    wazeh tha zindagi ki tarah aur KHwab tha

    pahle paDaw se hi use lauTna paDa

    lambi masafaton se jise ijtinab tha

    phir be-numu zamin thi aur KHushk the shajar

    be-abr aasman ka chalan kaamyab tha

    ek be-qayas baat se mansub ho gaya

    phaila hua huruf mein jo iztirab tha

    apni nigah par bhi karun e'tibar kya

    kis man par kahun wo mera intiKHab tha
