Itne bhi to woh khafaa nahi the

Itne bhi to woh khafaa nahi the

Jaise kabhi aashnaa nahi the

 

Maanaa K beham kahaan the aise

Per yun bhi judaa judaa nahi the

 

Thi jitni Bisaat! ki parastish!

Tum bhi to koi khudaa nahi the

 

Had hoti hai tanz ki bhi aakhir

Hum tere nahi the, jaa nahi the

 

Kis kis se nibaahte rafaaqat

Hum log K bewafaa nahi the

 

Rukhsat hua woh to maine dekha

Phool utne bhi khush-numaa nahi the

 

The yuN to hum uski anjuman meiN

Koi hameiN dekhtaa, nahi the

 

Jab usko tha maan khud pe kya kya!

Tab hum bhi ‘Faraz’ kya nahi the

 

 

(Ahmad Faraz)
