Khwaab Basera (Faiz Ahmed Faiz)


Iss waqt to youn lagta hai ab kuch bhi nahin hai
mahtaab na suraj na andhera na saweraa

Aankhon ke dareeche main kisi husn ki jhalkan
aur dil ki panaahon main kisi dard ka dera

Mumkin hai koi wehem ho mumkin hai suna ho
galiyon main kisi chaap ka ek akhiri phera

Shaakhon main khayaalon ke ghane per ki shayad
abb aa ke karega na koi khwaab basera

Ik bair na ik mahar na ik rabt na rishta
tera koi apna na paraaya koi mera

Maana ke ye sun-san ghari sakht bari hai                                                                                                        lekin mere dil ye to faqat ek ghari hai                                                                                                           himmat karo jeene ko abhi umr pari hai

    Raat yunh dil mein teri khoee hui yaad aayee
    Jaise veeraaney mein chupkey sey bahaar aa jaye
    Jaisey sehra on mein howley se chaley baadey naseem
    Jaisey beemaar ko bey wajhey Qaraar aa jaaye

    tum jo naa aa’e the to har chiiz vahii thii kih jo hai
    aasmaaN hadd-e-nazar, raahguzar raahguzar, shiishaah-e-mai,
    shiishaah-e-mai

    aur ab shiishaah-e-mai, raahguzar, rang-e-falak
    rang hai dil kaa mere, “khoon-e-jigar hone tak”
    champaa’i rang kabhii, raahat-e-diidaar kaa rang
    sur’ma’ii rang kabhii, saa’at-e-bezaar kaa rang

    zard pattoN kaa xas-o-xaar kaa rang
    surkh phuuloN kaa, dahakte hu’e gulzaar kaa rang
    zahar kaa rang, lahuu rang. shab-e-taar kaa rang

    aasmaaN, rahguzar, shiishaah-e-mai
    koii bhiigaa hu’aa daaman, ko’ii dukhtii hu’ii rag
    ko’ii har lahzaah badaltaa hu’aa aa’iinaah hai

    ab jo aa’e ho to Thahro kih koii rang, koii rut ko’ii shai
    ek jagah par Thahre
    phir se ik baar har ik chiiz vahii ho ke jo hai
    aasmaaN hadd-e-nazar, rahguzar rahguzar, shiishaah-e-mai,
    shiishaah-e-mai
