MORE BYAshfaq Husain

    vo tanhā thā to phir tanhā.ī dam-sāz honā thā

    un āñkhoñ ke liye mujh ko sitāra-sāz honā thā

    sabhī ḳhāmosh the āvāz par us so aise meñ

    mujhe chup to nahīñ rahnā thā ham-āvāz honā thā

    jo dil meñ thā vo ik vīrān gumbad meñ kah detā

    ye merā ahd thā mujh ko asar-andāz honā thā

    mire lab par zamāne shikāyat kis liye aa.ī

    agar ye shor thā to us ko be-āvāz honā thā

    na jaane mujh se kitne log the jo sochte ye the

    ki in se ik na.ī tārīḳh āġhāz honā thā

    jahāñ zaḳhmī tamannāoñ sarhad ḳhatm hotī thī

    vahāñ se ik na.ī ummīd āġhāz honā thā

    ye kār-e-ishq thā 'ashfāq' mujh se ho nahīñ paayā

    mujhe bhī shā.irī meñ sāhib-e-ejāz honā thā

    wo tanha tha to phir tanhai ka dam-saz hona tha

    un aankhon ke liye mujh ko sitara-saz hona tha

    sabhi KHamosh the aawaz par us ki so aise mein

    mujhe chup to nahin rahna tha ham-awaz hona tha

    jo dil mein tha wo ek viran gumbad hi mein kah deta

    ye mera ahd tha mujh ko asar-andaz hona tha

    mere lab par zamane ki shikayat kis liye aai

    agar ye shor tha to us ko be-awaz hona tha

    na jaane mujh se kitne log the jo sochte ye the

    ki in se ek nai tariKH ka aaghaz hona tha

    jahan zaKHmi tamannaon ki sarhad KHatm hoti thi

    wahan se ek nai ummid ka aaghaz hona tha

    ye kar-e-ishq tha 'ashfaq' mujh se ho nahin paya

    mujhe bhi shairi mein sahib-e-ejaz hona tha
