tumhein jab roo baroo dekha karein gy


tumhein jab roo baroo dekha karein gy
yeh socha hy, bohat socha karein gy

nazar mein choudhveen ka chaand ho ga
samandar ke zuba’N bola karein gy

kabhi to sur khuru thehrei’N gy jazby
tumhein khat, khoon sy likha karein gy

bicharna hy, tou yeh tey kar lein ab sy
judai ka safar, tanha karein gy

na aaey ga koi ilzaam tujh par
hum apne aap ko rusvaa karein gy

iss uljhan mein kati hy umer Mohsin
keh pal do pal mein hun, kya kya karein gy

Zindaan ki aik sham


sham ke paich-o-kham sitaro’N sy
zeena zeena, utar rahi hy raat
yoo’N saba pass sy guzarti hy
jesy keh de kisi ne payar ke baat
sehan-e-zindaa’N ke by watan ashjaar
sar nigoo’N, mehav hain banany mein
daaman-e-aasma’N pe naqsh-o-nigaar
shana-e-baam pr damakta hy
meharbaa’N chandni ka dast-e-jameel
khaak mein ghul gae hy aab-e-najoom
noor mein ghul gaya hy arsh ka neel
sabz gosho’N mein neelgoo’N saey
lehlahaty hain, jis tarah dil mein
mouj-e-dard-e-firaaq-e-yaar aaey
dil sy paiham khayal kehta hy
itni sheeree’N hy zindagi iss pal
zulm ka zehar gholny waly
kaamraa’N ho sakei’N gy aaj na kal
jalwa gaah-e-visaal ke shammei’N
wo bujha bhi chuky, agar tou kya?
chaand ko gul karei’N, tou hum jaanei’N

Aks-e-Khushboo hoon


Aks -e- Khushboo Hoon Bekharnay Say Na Rokay Koee
Or Bekhar Jaoon Tu Mujh Ko Na Samaitay Koee

Kaanp Uthate Hoon Main Yah Soch Kay Tanhaee Main
Meray Cheray Pay Tera Naam Na Parh Lay Koee

Jis Tarah Khowab Meray Ho Gay Hain Rayza Rayza
Is Tarah Na Kabhi Toot Kay Bikhray Koee

Main Tu Us Din Say Harasa Hoon Kah Jab Hukam Melay
KhushK Pholoon Ko Ketaboon Main Na Rakhay Koee

Ab Tu Is Rah Say Wo Shaks Bhi Nahi Guzarta
Ab Kis Umeed Pay Darwazay Say Jhankay Koee

koi aahat, koi awaz, koi chaap nahi
dil ki galyaan’ bari sunsan hain aye koi

(Parveen Shakir)

Khwab Marte Nahin


Khwab Marte Nahin
Khwab Dil Hain Na Ankhen Na Sansen K Jo
Reza-Reza Hue To Bikhar Jayenge
Jism Ki Maut Se Ye Bhi Mar Jayenge

Khwab Marte Nahin
Khwab To Roshni Hain, Nava Hain, Hava Hain
Jo Kale Pahadon Se Rukte Nahin
Zulm K Dozakhon Se Bhi Phukte Nahin
Roshni Aur Nava Aur Hava K Alam
Maqtalon Main Pohunch Kar Bhi Jhukte Nahin

Khwab To Harf Hain
Khwab To Nur Hain
Khwab Suqraat Hain
Khwab Mansoor Hain

chalne ka hosla nahi,rukna mohal kerdiya,


chalne ka hosla nahi,rukna mohal kerdiya,
ishq ke is safar ne to mujh ko nidhal kerdiya,

milte hue dilon ke beach or tha faisla koi,
usne mager bicharte waqt aur sawal kerdiya,

ae mere gul zameen tujhe chah the ek kitab ki,
ahle kitab ne mager kiya tera hal kerdiya,

ab ke hawa ke sath hai damn-e-yaar muntazir,
bano-e-shab ke hath mein rakhna sambhal kerdiya,

mumkina faislon mein ek hijr ka faisla bhi tha,
hum ne to ek baat ki us ne kamal kerdiya,

mere labo per mohar the,per mere sheesha rooh ne to,
shehar ke shehar ko mera waiqf-e-hal kerdiya,

chehra o naam ek sath aj na yad aasake,
waqt ne kis shabih ko khuwab-o-khayal kerdiya,

ke mudato baad usne aj mujh se koi gila kiya,
mansab-e-dilbari pe kaya mujh ko bahal kerdiya,
