kabhi kabhi main ye sochta hun ki mujhko teri talash kyun hai

JAVED AKHTAR

kabhī kabhī maiñ ye sochtā huuñ ki mujh ko terī talāsh kyuuñ hai

ki jab haiñ saare hī taar TuuTe to saaz meñ irti.āsh kyuuñ hai

koī agar pūchhtā ye ham se batāte ham gar to kyā batāte

bhalā ho sab kā ki ye na pūchhā ki dil pe aisī ḳharāsh kyuuñ hai

uThā ke hāthoñ se tum ne chhoḌā chalo na dānista tum ne toḌā

ab ulTā ham se to ye na pūchho ki shīsha ye paash paash kyuuñ hai

ajab do-rāhe pe zindagī hai kabhī havas dil ko khīñchtī hai

kabhī ye sharmindagī hai dil meñ ki itnī fikr-e-ma.āsh kyuuñ hai

na fikr koī na justujū hai na ḳhvāb koī na aarzū hai

ye shaḳhs to kab kā mar chukā hai to be-kafan phir ye laash kyuuñ hai
