Gulzar

Shafaq

Roz sahil pe khade hoke yahi dekha hai
Shaam ka pighla hua surkh-sunhari rogan
Roz matiyale-se paani mein yeh ghul jaata hai

Roz sahil pe khade hoke yahi socha hai
Mein jo pighali huee rangeen shafaq ka rogan
Ponchh loo haathon pe

Aur chpuke se ik baar kabhi
Tere gulnaar se rukhsaaron pe chhap se mal doon
Shaam ka pighala hua surkh-sunhari rogan

Aao Phir Nazm Kahen
Phir Kisi Dard Ko Sahla Ke Suja Le Ankhen
Phir Kisi Dukhti Rag Se Chhua De Nashtar
Ya Kisi Bhooli Huee Raah Pe Mudkar
Ek Baar Naam Lekar Kisi Hamnam Ko Awaz Hi De Le
Phir Koi Nazm Kahen

Alaava

Raat bhar sard hawa chalti rahi
Raat bha hamne alaav taapa
Maine maazi se kai khushk see shaakhien kaati
Tumne bhi gujre hue lamhon ke patte tode
Meine jebon se nikali sabhi sukhi nazme
Tumne bhi haathon se murjhaaye hue khat khole
Apnee in aankhon se meine kai maanze tode
Aur haathon se kai baasi lakeeren phenki
Tumne palkon pe nami sookh gayee thee, so gira di

Raat bhar jo bhi mila ugte badan par humko
Kaat ke daal diya jalte alaawon main use
Raat bhar phoonkon se har lau ko jagaye rakha
Aur do zismon ke indhan ko jalaye rakha
Raat bhar bujhte hue rishte ko taapa humne

Humdum

Mod pe dekha hai wo boodha-sa ek ped kabhi ?
Mera waqif hai, bahut salon se mein use jaanata hoon

Jab mein chhota tha to ik aam udaane ke liye
Parli deewar se kandhon pe chadha tha uske
Jaane dukhti huee kis shaakh se jaa paanv lagaa
Dhaad se phenk diya tha muje neeche usne
Meine khunnas main bahut phenke the pathar us par

Meri shaadi pe mujhe yaad hai shaakhein dekar
Meri vedi ka hawan garm kiya tha usne
Aur jab haamla thi ‘Biba’ to dopahar main har din
Meri biwi ki taraf kairiyan phenki thi isi ne
Waqt ke saath sabhi phool, sabhi patti gaye

Tab bhi jal jaata tha jab Munne se kehti ‘Biba’
‘Haan,usi ped se aaya hai tu, Ped ka phal hai’
Ab bhi jal jaata hoon. jab mod se gujarte mein kabhi
Khaanskar kehta hai, ‘Kyo, Sar ke sabhi baal gaye?’

‘Subah se kaat rahe hain woh Kameti wale
Mod tak jaane ki himmat nahin hoti mujhko’
