Har Aashna Mein KahaN Khooy-E-Mahramaana Woh


Har aashna mein kahaN khooy-e-mahramaana woh

K be-wafaa tha magar dost tha puraanaa woh

KahaN se layein ab aaNkhein use K rakhta tha

AdaawatoN mein bhi andaaz mukhlisaana woh

Jo abr tha to use tooT kar barasnaa tha

Yeh kya K aag laga kar hua rawaanaa woh

Pukaarte hain mah-o-saal manziloN ki tarah

Laga hai tosan-e-hasti ko taziyaanaa woh

Hamein bhi Gham-talabi ka nahi raha yaaraa

Tere bhi rang nahi gardish-e-zamaana woh

Ab apni khaahishein kya kya use rulaati haiN

Yeh baat hum ne kahi thi magar na maana woh

Yehi kaheiNge K bus soorat-aashnaayi thi

Jo ahd tooT gaya! yaad kya dilaana woh

Us ek shakl mein kya kya na sooratein dekhiN

Nigaar tha nazar aayaa nigaar khaana woh

‘Faraz’ khaab si ghaflat dikhaayi deti hai

Jo log jaan-e-jahaaN the hue fasaana woh

(Ahmad Faraz – From CHAND AUR MAIN)
