Bhale DinoN ki baat hai

Bhali see aik shakl thi

Naa yeh ky husn-e-taam ho

Naa dekhne mein ‘Aam see

Naa yeh ky woh chale tu Keh-kashaan see rahguzar laghy

magar woh saath ho to phir bhala bhala safar lage

koi bhi rut ho us ki chchab

fiza ka rang-o-roop thi

woh garmiyon ki chchaaon thi

woh sardiyon ki Dhoop thi

na muddatoN judaa rahe

na saath subh-o-shaam ho

na rishta-e-wafa pe zid

na ye ki izn-e-‘Aam ho

na aisi Khush libasiyaan

ki saadgi gila kare

na itni be takallufi

ki aaina haya kare

na ikhtilaat mein woh ram

ki bad-mazah hon Khwahishen

na is qadar supurdigi

ki zach karen nawazishen

na aashiqi junoon ki

ki zindagi ‘azaab ho

na is qadar kaThor pan

ki dosti Kharaab ho

kabhi to baat bhi Khafi

kabhi sukoot bhi suKhan

kabhi to kasht-e-z’afraan

kabhi udaasiyoN ka ban

suna hai aik ‘umr hai

mu’Amilaat-e-dil ki bhi

visaal-e-jaanfiza to kya

firaaq-e-jaangusal ki bhi

so aik roz kya hua

wafa pe bahas cherr gayi

main ishq ko amar kahoon

woh meri zid se chidh gayi

main ishq ka aseer tha

woh ishq ko qafas kahe

ki umr bhar ke saath ko

woh bad-taraz-hawas kahe

“shajar hajr nahin ki ham

hamesh pa ba gul rahen

na Dhor hain ki rassiyaan

gale main mustaqil rahain

mohabbatoN ki vus’Atain

hamare dst-o-pa mein hain

bas aik dar se nisbatein

sagaan-e-bawafa mein hain

main koi painting nahi

ki aik frame meiN rahoon

wahi jo man ka meet ho

usi ke praim meiN rahoon

tumhari soch jo bhi ho

main is mizaaj ki nahin

mujhe wafa se bair hai

ye baat aaj ki nahin”

na us ko mujh pe maan tha

na mujh ko us pe za’Am hi

jo ‘ahad hi koi na hoi

to kya gham-e-shakistagi

so apna apna raasta

hansi Khushi badal diya

woh apni raah chal padi

main apni raah chal diya

bhali si aik shakl thi

bhali si us ki doosti

ab us ki yaad raat din

nahin, magar “kabhi kabhi”
