ab tak ye na jaan sake se zakhm usne diye ya humne
ghaav uske seene pe bhi hein ghaav mere jism par bhi
koi chupchaap aata hai aur
dabe paanv laut jaata hai
din mein kai baar uski galiyon se guzarte hein
garaj ye ke wo waakif hai magar mushtaaq nahi
mile barson ke baad aur phir bichad gaye yun hi
ye kismat ke khel hein yaaron , koi ittefaaq nahin

waakif - knows
mushtaaq - interested


ye kiska chehra hai jo sone nahin deta
aur neend beqraar hokar bhatakti firti hai
----------------

ho sake toh koi us tak ek paigaam pahuncha de
ghadi bhar ko phir wo ghadi mere nazdeek la de
jee bhar kar uski soorat aankhon mein bhar lenge
koi uski soorat ka ek baar phir deedaar karaa de
aitbaar kar sako to karo lo....yehi meri zindgi hai
dar pe baithen hein, magar darwaaza nahin khulta....


---------------------------------

jab armaan dil ke kho jaate hein
to lafz zubaan par so jaate hein...

-----------------------------------

bus unke ek sawaal se hum ghabraaten hein
ke tumne yun kiya toh kyun kiya...?
aur hamaare ek jawaab se wo ukhad jaate hein
ke hum wo na karte, toh kya karte???
---------------------------------

us saade se pairhan mein badaa hi saada jo shaks tha
hum use bashar samajhte rahe, wo sirf insaan ka aks tha
nooraani rukh zaroor tha, aankhen magar kaisi bejaan thi
sookhe labon per beetin muskaano ka ek ajeeb sa raks tha

--------------------------

aaina hamesha tasveer ulti dikhaata hai,
dekho kuch magar nazar kuch aata hai
daag dhoondhne se bhi khud ko nahi milte
apna chehre ka aks hamesha khoobsoorat hi lautata hai

--------------------------------

haathon ki lakeeren dekh kar hum bhi socha karten hein
itni choti lakeeron mein kismat ne zindgi kaise basai hogi
kab tak aur intezaar karna hoga waqt ke badalne ka
jaane kab jaakar meharbaan apne pe khudaai hogi???
----------------------------

koi maraasim nahin tha, koi kaul o qaraar bhi nahin
dil ko phir bhi ek tavaqqo rah gayi thi us aashanaa se
guzarti gayi relgaadi ki tarah maqaam dar maqaam
zindgi mahroom rah gayi hai ab bhi apne makaan se ...

maraasim - agreement
kaul o qaraar - promise and resolution
tavaqqo - hope
aashanaa - friend, known
maqaam - station
mahroom - deprived
--------------------------------

jhuka kar nazar dekh lete hein khud ka geela girebaan bhi
ke daag ashqon ke sirf teri aasteen par achche nahni lagte

----------------------------------

hijr se koi shikwa mat kar e yaarab,
k hijr mein wasal ki umeed chupi baithi hai....



mithi mithi baaten karna tere bus mein nahi
kamaal to ye hai ke tu namkeen bhi nahi

aaina hamesha tasveer ulti dikhaata hai,
dekho kuch magar nazar kuch aata hai
daag dhoondhne se bhi khud ko nahi milte
apna chehra hamesh khoobsoorat nazar aata hai
dil ek hai aur bechaara baar baar toot jaata hai
jis se lagaa hai us shaks se hi thokar khaata hai
haathon ki lakeeren dekh kar hum bhi socha karten hein
itni choti lakeeron mein kismat ne zindgi kaise basai hogi
kab tak aur intezaar karna hoga waqt ke badalne ka
jaane kab jaakar meharbaan apne pe khudaai hogi????
kah to diya khayaalon ko ab aana chhod do
naamuraad waqt, be waqt aa jaate hein sataate hein
mashaal meri nigaahon mein thi,
aur roshni uski raahon mein thi
haan guzra ek waqt aisa bhi tha jab
meri taqdeer meri panaahon mein thi
apni soorat bhi ab dekh nahin paate, ke
aajkal aainon mein bhi dhuan basta hai
bahut geeli geeli rahti hein palken meri
aur aasmaa ek baadal ko tarasta hai
ho sake toh koi us tak ek paigaam pahuncha de
ghadi bhar ko phir wo ghadi mere nazdeek la de
jee bhar kar uski soorat aankhon mein bhar lenge
koi uski soorat ka ek baar phir deedaar karaa de
ye kiska chehra hai jo sone nahin deta
aur neend beqraar hokar bhatakti firti hai
hijr se koi shikwa mat kar e yaarab,
k hijr mein wasal ki umeed chupi baithi hai....
jhuka kar nazar dekh lete hein khud ka geela girebaan bhi
ke daag ashqon ke sirf teri aasteen par achche nahni lagte
koi maraasim nahin tha, koi kaul o qaraar bhi nahin
dil ko phir bhi ek tavaqqo rah gayi thi us aashanaa se
guzarti gayi relgaadi ki tarah maqaam dar maqaam
zindgi mahroom rah gayi hai ab bhi apne makaan se ...

maraasim - agreement
kaul o qaraar - promise and resolution
tavaqqo - hope
aashanaa - friend, known
maqaam - station
mahroom - deprived
khuda ka shukr karen ya uski kudrat ko sajda karen,
ke lakeeren mil gayi mere haathon ki uske haathon se
khuda ka shukr karen ya uski kudrat ko sajda karen,
ke lakeeren mil gayi mere haathon ki uske haathon se

khwaabo dekhne mein aur haqiqat mein sirf aankhon ka farq hota hai,
band ho aankhen to sab haseen hota hai aur khul jaayen ko be-taskeen
meri bahaaren mere daaman mein hi chupi baithi thi
hum hi the jo sahra mein kho gaye the talaash karte karte
kuch kambakhat sharaare ab tak jal rahen hein
haathon se jinhen bujhakar haath jalaaye the
hum to soche the aatish unme ab baaki nahin
jin angaaron ko hum muddat gaye dafan kar aaye the
बहुत देता है, दामन भरता नहीं फिर भी,
न भूख मिटती है, न प्यास जाती है,
तेरे दर पर रहमतों की बारिश ऐसी है
के हर टूटे दिल को इस दर उसकी आस लाती है...

जिसने कभी सर झुकाया नहीं, उसको भी यकीं है
के माथे की लकीरें तेरी कलम से लिखीं हैं
जिसका सर कभी उठा नहीं तेरी चौखट से,
सुना है तेरी खुदाई खुद उसके पास जाती है ...

मेरा क्या, मेरी ज़बीं किसी के दर पर नवीं नहीं
मेरी जुबां ने तेरा नाम शायद कभी लिया नहीं
आज जब हाथ उठे दुआ को बेकसी में,
तेरी नूर-ए-नज़र की कशिश मुझे तेरे पास लाती है...

वो आँख का चुल्लू भर पानी यूँ दरिया नजीब बन गया
तेरी नज़र-ए-इनायत पड़ी और मेरा नसीब बन गया
नाकाफी थी मेरी झोली मौला, ऐसी बख्शीश दराज़ की
वल्लाह हम काफिरों पर भी तेरी नज़र ख़ास जाती है ...

usne kaise kaise itaab zaahir kiya,
mera khat apne raqeeb ko bhej diya

itaab - anger
raqeeb - competitor
maraasim sau the, na-ittefaaqi koi bhi na hui
garche ye yaari thi, toh ranjish kaisi balaa hogi...

maraasim - agreement
sau - hundreds
kabhi intezaar bhi na tha, kabhi ikhtyaar bhi na tha
phir bhi hum kaise kahen hume unse pyaar na tha
bahut dard tha zindgi mein magar dil beqarar na tha
magar tab bhi wo meri bebasi ka zimmedaar na tha

rishton ke dhaage kachche kachche
rishton ka rang bhi badal jaata hai
jab tak nibha sako nibha lo inko, phir
yaadon mein har lamha sambhal jaata hai...

har zindgi mein ek kahani chupi hoti hai
harek kahani mein koi zindgi bitaata hai
jo beej aaj banaa hai wo kal ped banega
jo aaj ped ban gaya kal beej banaata hai
rawaani thi, rawaani hai, rawaani rahegi
isme ek lamha aata hai aur ek jaata hai
n isko kisi ne paar kiya na paar hai koi iska
ajab paheli hai zindgi ajab hi gaatha hai
alag hein magar tere saayon mein hum hi baste hein,
teri chaavn mein rah kar beshaq dhoop ko taraste hein
tune sudh n li, n sahi, aur ab koi shikaayat bhi nahin, magar
milenge kabhi k raste humare aaj bhi wo hein jo tere raste hein

तोड़ कर फूल जब बुत पर चदाये जाते हैं
ओस की बूंदों में हमे आंसू नज़र आते हैं
क्या बुतपरस्ती के वास्ते जान लेना ठीक है
क्या खुदा ऐसे ही मनाये जाते हैं

ishaaron mein bahut kuch bayaan ho sakta hai,
garaj ke koi un khaamosh lafzon ko samajh sake
bachpan mein sikhaya gaya tha,
god mein bitha kar batlaya gaya tha,
zyaada oonche khwaab mat sajana,
apne maasoom dil ko mat bahalana
chaahe dil ke armaan kabhi nahi sote
magar kuch khwaab kabhi poore nahi hote...

har lafz suna magar dil apna toda nahi
koshish ki magar khwaab chun na chhoda nahi
kabhi khud se lade, kabhi haalaat se lekin
maayusi ko apne wajood par odha nahi
ye maana ke dil ke armaan kabhi nahi sote
magar ye galat tha ke khwaab poore nahi hote...

kyunki kisi ne tumhare sapne thukra diye
to kya, qaaynaat ab bhi barkaraar hai
dekh phir ek baar koshish kar
ek baar phir mauka tyaar hai
ye maana ke dil ke armaan kabhi nahi sote
magar ye galat tha ke khwaab poore nahi hote

jab dekh taara toot te hue to naamuraad na ho
zameen par girne se pahle usko lapak le,
daboch kar apni hatheliyon ki ot mein
chupa kar usko apne khazaane mein rakh le
sach maana ke dil ke armaan kabhi nahi sote
magar ye galat tha ke khwaab poore nahi hote
gunaahon aur panaahon ke bhanwar mein gumshuda
dhoondhte hein khud ko, magar mulaakat nahi hoti
khaamosh rahte hein magar khaamosh nahi
bahut kuch kah jaati hai unki bezubaani bhi
zindgi se milne ki tammanna hai ek baar phir se
muskuraa ke dekhenge aur kahenge jee rahe hein
maine kya likha, kyun likha ab iska hisaab kya rakhen
har lafz wahaan pahunch gaya ye hi mera inaam hai

kaun kahaan se aaya hai, kaun kahaan jaa raha hai
kisi ko ilm nahin, kisi ko aabhaas nahin
safar mein kaun saath raha, safar se kaun bichad gaya
kisi ko parwaah nahi kisi ko ahsaas nahi
haath thaam kar chhod gaya, haath chuda kar thaam liya
kisi ko bitaaye gaye waqt ka andaaz nahi
koi subah tha shaam tak guzar gaya, koi shaam ko mila subah nahin raha
is zindgi ka kahin ant nahi kahin agahaaz nahi
Dil mein basaa hai, nazar lekin jhuk jaati hai
usko sajda karne se meri zabeen itraati hai
------------------------------------------

itni saadgi, itni maasoomiyat, itna bhola man
kaun kahta hai aadmi bachpan bitaa sakta hai
aapki kaahmoshi bahut shor karti hai, aur aapki aawaaz chuppi ban jaati hai,
ishaaron ko nazar sunti hai, to dil mein bahut door tak utar jaati hai

एक कतरा पानी का
आँखों में तैरता रहा मुद्दत तलक
काश तेरे दामन में गिर जाता
तो, वो बंजारा, शायद अश्क कहलाता
आंसुओं से भी अब क्या शिकवा करे कोई
ये मासूम सिर्फ दिल का दर्द बयान करते हैं
रोता दिल है मगर दिल के पास कोई जरिया नहीं
इसलिए बेचारे आँखों के रास्ते निकलते हैं

utha kar taraash diya to but-e-khuda ban gaya,
kai paththaron ki taqdeer khuda yun bhi likhta hai
umeed bhi abhi baaki hai, aasra bhi abhi baaki hai,
sirf ye dil-e-masoom hai jo besabr hua jaata hai,
har apne ke jazbe se waakif hoon yaarab,
magar kai dafaa ye bayaan yakin dilaata hai

zaroori nahi ke har thokar chot deti hai
kai martba thokar hi galti hone se rok leti hai
kabhi jeene ka salika thokar sikha jaati hai,
aur kabhi jeene ka tareeka bataa jaati hai....


panno mein gar simat sakti to zindgi yun bikharti nahin,
iski buniyaad bus kuch lafz, kuch khayaal aur kuch afsaane

jab haath thaama tha uska to yeh socha bhi na tha
jisko khuda jaante hein wo mukkammal insaan bhi nahi
zaroorat badalti jaati hai hasbe haalaat,
kaun kahta hai magar haalaat nahi badalte
anjaane raaston par kisi ko manzil milti hai, kisi to manzar,
hum un sirfiron mein se hein jo raahe khud banaate hein,
agarcheh akele chale the, magar ab akele nahin hein,
goya toofaan khud aakar meri muththi mein samaate hein,
kyun haathon ki lakeeron mein dhoondhe kismeten apni,
jab peshaani par mehnat ke gauhar jagmagaate hein,
na saaya na chaaya na thandi hawaaon ka waasta mila,
hum barq se uski milkiyat lekar apni tiiragii mitaate hein...

agarcheh -although, goya - as if, peshaani - forehead, gauhar - pearl, barq - lightening, milkiyat - property, tiiragii - darkness
uthaa kar ek jaam uske naam jo piya,
sadiyon ka saroor yun hi utar gaya...
mila tha jo khwaab mein shaks
kya usne tumhen sambhaal liya
jab bhi kisi ne ye sawaal kiya,
humne yun hi hans ke taal diya..
lafzon mein gar bayaan ho jaati,
kaun ahmak bhalaa kaseede likhta,
mohabbat wo shaatir balaa hai
jo dawaa ban kar dard de jaati hai
