A Man With Dreams…

Waqas Mehmood Hashmi

Aside

Main tanha akela phirta raha tere sheher mein

Main tanha akela phirta raha tere sheher mein,
Qadam larrkharratey rahe, chalta raha tere sheher mein,

Teri talash main bhatakta raha galiyon mein ban ke awaara,
Pata tera har kisi se poochta raha tere sheher mein,

Ajab maseeha hai tu ke tujh ko khabar tak na huyi,
Ik mareez tera dard se tarrpta raha tere sheher mein,

Hazaron rishtey, hazaron manzilain thi mere samney,
Kon sa rasta kon si manzil meri, sochta raha tere sheher mein,

Kisi ne sahara deke bachaya, kisi ne manzil se bhatkaya,
Tamasha bani zaat meri aur mein, tamasha dekhta raha tere sheher mein,

Kabhi kanton pe chalaya geya, kabhi deke hansi rulaya geya,
Tere milney ki aas main Waqas gham sehtaa raha tere sheher mein..


Aaj mera janam din tha

Aaj mera janam din tha,
Main intizar karta raha,
Din se raat ho gayi,
Aur main chalta raha,
Barish mere badan ko bhigoti rahi,
Aur tann andar hi andar jalta raha,
Magar mein chalta raha,
Intizar karta raha,
Ke shayed…
Kahin se koi jaani pehchani si awaz,
Mujhe pyar se bulaa kar kahe,
Janam din mubarak ho…

Magar aaj to har taraf balaa ka sanaata hai,
Puri basti ne mere janam ke saug mein,
Apne apne gharon mein chiragha’n nahin kiya,
Har taraf holnaak andhera tha,
Is andhere mein,
Barish ka shor,
Pato’n ki khar’kharahat,
Hawaa ki siskiyaan,
Aur bijli ki chamak ne,
Mahol ajeeb daraawna sa bana diya tha,
Mera dil ghabraa gaya,
Subah ka bhoola tha is liye,
Shaam ko ghar aagaya,

Kya dekhta hoon ke ghar ki dehleez par hamesha ki tarah,
Woh chiraag liye meri muntzir thi,
Us ne aa kar mujhe sahara diya,
Phir apne naazuk bazu’on mein samait kar,
Mujhe mere bistar tak le gayi,
Mera sar apni gaud mein rakh kar,
Mere baalon mein ungliyan pher kar mujhe sulaney lagi,
Phir dheere dheere mere kaan mein gunguney lagi,

Janam din mubarak ho,
Janam din mubarak ho,
Dunya walon se kitni achi thi,
Meri tanhai,
Meri udaasi,
Meri veerani,
Meri mehbooba…


Meri aankhon ko aur na rat’jagon ke azaab de

Meri aankhon ko aur na rat’jagon ke azaab de,
Jo ho sake to ab inhain koi haseen khawab de,

Jo kaha nahin hai mene, usey samajne ki koshish to kar,
Jo pucha nahin kabhi, us sawaal ka jawaab to de,

Main apni nazar ko tere wajood ka tawaaf somp raha hon,
Tu apne hussan ko meri wafaa ka hijaab to de,

Main mareez-e-ishq hoon mujhe koi aesa nusskha-e-nayaab de,
Us ke honton ka jaam, us ki aankhon ki sharaab de,

Yu’n be’jaa farmayeshen na kar, halaat ki nazakat ko samajh Waqas,
Jo khud mohtaj hai roshni ka, woh tujhe kahan se aftaab de..


Safar mein guzri hai umar apni, ab ik thikhana chahiye

Safar mein guzri hai umar apni, ab ik thikhana chahiye
Ke zinda rehne ko koi tou bahana chahiye

Koi tou ho jo in rasmon se elaan-e-baghawat kare
Kahin tou andhere mein koi chirag jalana chahiye

Kab se veeran para hai yeh ayina – e – dil
Sochta hoon ab koi neya chehra sajana chahhiye

Bohat muddat se muntazir hai mere des ki matti
Shayed ke ab mujhe laut ke ghar jana chahiye

Mujhe fakat usi ke sath ki tamana thi waqas
Magar usey mere sath sath sara zamana chahiye


Har saal ki trah

Har saal ki trah
baraf-bari ka mosam
iss saal bhi aay tha
faraq sirf itna tha
ke pichle bars hum dono sath the
magar aaj…….
aaj bhi me tanha nai hon..
guzre hue kal ki sare yadain mere sath hian
magar “yadain”
“tere aaghosh ki garmi ka naimul-badal to nahi”


Guzre dinon ki achi batain yaad rakhta hoon

Guzre dinon ki achi batain yaad rakhta hoon,
Khushiyon mein bhi ashkon ki baratain sath rakhta hoon,

Mein ab aksar tanha ho kar bhi tanha nahin rehta,
Jahan bhi rahoon teri yadain sath rakhta hoon

Mujh ko kabhi zaroorat nahin pari mashk o atar ki,
Tere badn ki khushbu, teri mehkti sansain sath rakhta hoon

Kese bhool sakta hoon mein pata apne ghar ka,
Tere kadmon ke nishan, Teri ankhen sath rakhta hoon

Jo guzrey they bazu’on mein tere, Ehd o peimaan karte hoye
Woh sarey din woh sari ratain sath rakhta hoon

Woh tera mujhe se larna, roothna, Phir khud hi maan jana,
In shararton mein chupi theen jo woh mohbtain sath rakhta hon

Mehkte rangeen kaghzon ke khat, In mein se sajay gulaab sarey,
Chehre pyar ki sab yeh soghatain sath rakhta hoon

Jin per kabhi chale they hum hath mein daley hath waqas,
Mein woh sab raste, Sab raahain sath rakhta hoon…

Shaam se pehle ik diya jalana chahta hoon

Shaam se pehle ik diya jalana chahta hoon,
Main aaj apni mohabbat ko aazmana chahta hoon,

Yeh anaa-parast log hain andar se tootay huye,
Mein yeh baat dunya walon ko batana chahta hoon,

Teri zaat ki mehroomiyan, Tere man ki yeh udaasiyan,
Mujhe moka to de, mein inhe mitaana chahta hoon,

Tere hath mein mere rehber, Tere naksh-e-paa meri manzil ke,
Tujhe mein chilchilati dhoop mein aanchal banana chahta hon,

Cheen lo saharey mujhse, apne paraaye sarey mujhse,
Bas do hosla mujhe, mein khud ko manwaana chahta hoon,

Poocha jo yaaron ne muskurahat ka sabab to kehne laga Waqas,
Mein hansi ke pardey mein dard apna chupana chahta hoon..
