Ummeed

In Life by adminLeave a Comment

Sitare tod lane ke kabhi wade kiye tumne..
Zami ki khaak ki khatir humari aankh roti hai..
Arre bedard ab is zindagi me hi rakha kya hai..
Jo teri chahaton ke kabr par har shaam roti hai..

Kaha tumne shab-e-hizra me khwabon me bula lena..
Khalish me din guzarta hai, fanaa har raat hoti hai..
Zafaa ke mod par ab bhi wafa ki law sulagti hai..
Na tum aaye, na ummeede seher ki baat hoti hai..

Isi ummeed me iman-o-dil lekar khade hai hum..
Ki ummeedon se bhi shayad badi ek baat hoti hai..
Chale aao ki ab palke badi bhaari hui hain dost..
Shama bujhti hai, ashkon ki shuru barsaat hoti hai..
