Ahmad Faraz Poetry

Wo barish mein koi sahara dhoondata hai Faraz
E badal aaj itna baras ki meri bahon ko wo sahara bana le
Gila kare to kaise karein Faraz
Wo lataaluk sahi magar intikhaab to mera hai
Ye wafa un dino ki baat hai Faraz
Jab log sacche aur makan kacche hua karte the
Deewar kya giri mere kachche makam ki Faraz
Logon ne mere ghar se raste bana liye

Kabhi tuta nahin mere dil se aapki yaad ka tilism Faraz
Guftgoo jisse bhi ho khyal aapka rehata hai
Chaahane wale mukaddar se mila karte hai Faraz
Us ne is baat ko taslim kiya mere jaane ke baad
Dosti apni bhi asar rakhti hai Faraz
Bahut yaad aayenge jara bhool ke dekho
Muhabbat mein maine kiya kuchh nahin luta diya Faraz
US ko pasand thi raushani aur maine khud ko jala diya

Kabhi himmat to kabhi hausale se haar gaye
Hum badnaseeb the jo har kisi se haar gaye
Ajab khel ka maidan hai ye duniya Faraz
Ki jisko jeet chuke usi se haar gaye
Fursat mile to kabhi humein bhi yaad kar lena Faraz
Badi pur raunak hoti hai yaadein hum faqiron ki
Wo bazahir to mila tha ek lamhe ko Faraz
Umar sari chahiye usko bhulane ke liye
Waqt-e-naza hai, is kashmkash mein hoon ki jaan kisko doon Faraz
Wo bhi aaye baithe hain aur maut bhi aai baithi hai

Ek pal jo tujhe bhoolane ka sochata hoon Faraz
Meri saanse meri taqdir se ulajh jati hai
Sawaab samajh kar wo dil ke tukade karta hai Faraz
Gunaah samajh kar hum un se gila nahin karte
