Jo guzar gaya… (One that’s long gone)

.

Poem:

Jo guzar gaya hai usay lagataar dhundhta hai…
Kesa pagal hai jaagtay mein sapnay bunta hai…

Us ko kese milni manzil pohanch kar bhi,
Jo har raah guzartay se patah puuchta hai.

Tu bhi kia us shakhs se gham-e-yaar karta hai…
Woh jo khud kisi moujzay ka intezar karta hai…

Kia zarurat hai tujay khudai ko lalkarnay ki
Khuda tera paton ki sarsarahat bhi sunta hai.

Tu mang raha hai us se rakh kar samnay buutt.
Woh jo keh k “kun” mitti mein jaan bharta hai…

Yeh kis shajr ka phool hai dekho zara…
Jo na to girta hai na to sambhalta hai.

Karle saaf chahay roshan-daan marmar k gharon k,
Par woh chiraag abad se banday k andar jalta hai.

Ussay kaho duaon k sath kuch amal bhi karlay.
Waqt tabhi badalta hai jab banda badalta hai.

Ussay bataya kar tu apnay dil ka sab haal.
Beshak tu ye janta hai k woh sab jaanta hai.

Ab k jaana to le jaana us k liye khizan k phool.
Us k haan pat jarr ka mausam bahar laata hai.

Sohani tu bhi to sirf “yaar, yaar” jhoomta hai.
Kabhi de qurbaani bhi, Khuda nahi bhulta hai.

— Dedicated to those of us who still reminisce about the past.
