Jis chaand ki chaah hai..

The Moon

Jis chaand ki chaah hai kabse,

Wo baadlon ke pardon mein chhupa hai,

Haasil karna chahta hoon lekin,

Ye dil bhi apni zidd pe ada hai..

Kyon hai uss chaand ko guroor,

Maana ki haan uspe koi daag nahi,

Par uss dam pe yoon tadpana,

Ye humein hargiz manzoor nahi..

Kar le tu lakh manaa,

Ek din tu bhi zameen par aayega,

Jab sitare tujhe bhool jaaenge,

Aur tera wajood dagmagaega..

Tab dhoondh lena mujhe,

Mai kisi maikhane mein miloonga,

Aur na aaya gar tu,

Toh mai roz raat naya chaand dhoondh loonga..

Na hoga tere jaisa roop,

Par usmein guroor toh na hoga,

Aur jab shaam ho jaegi,

Toh us nacheez ka bhi kuchh suroor toh hoga..

Un silsilon ko …

Un silsilon ko yaad karna

Ab aadat sa ban gaya hai

Kabhi le aata hai muskan

Kabhi seene ko chhal gaya hai

Par fir bhi hoon na mai naraz

Kisi lamhe ke na hone se

Kyonki in haathon ki lakeeron ko likha

Hai upar waale ne apni syaahi se

Mit paaega na jo saare jatan se

Badal paaega na jo kisi wachan se

Gar tapasya ki shapth li jaae

Milega wo jo ho apne karam se
