Nasir Kazmi

(1925 - 1972)

naye kapre badal kar jaun kahan aur bal banaun kis k liye
wo shakhs to shahar hi chor gaya ab khak uraun kis k liye

jis dhup ki dil ko thandak thi wo dhup usi k sath gai
in...

Apni dhun mein rehta hoon
Mein bhi tere jesa hoon

Oo pichli rut ke sathi
Mein bhi tere jesa hoon

Teri gali mein sara din
Dukh ke kankar chunta hoon

Mera diya...

Teri nigaah ke jadu bikharte jate hain
Jo zakhm dil ko miley woh bharte jate hain

Tere bagher woh din bhi guzar gaye akhir
Tere bagher yeh din bhi guzarte jate hain

Liye...

Kya lage raat ke phir dil mein samaya koi
Raat bhar phirta hai is sheher mein saya koi

Fikr yeh thi ke shab e hijar kattey gi kyun kar
Lutff yeh hai ke humain yaad na aaya koi...

Dard kam hone laga aao ke kuch raat kate
Gham ki miaad badha jaao ke kuch raat kate

Hijr mein aah-o-baka sa kuhan hai lekin
Aaj yeh rasm hi dohrao ke kuch raat kate

Yun...
