Bhool Jaa!

a new beginning, tomorrow, optimistic, new journey

(I heard the below couplets some days back, they aren’t my creations.  But I loved the meaning of it and the message conveyed. Simply optimistic… too good!)

Kahaan aake rukne the raaste, kahaan mod tha, usse bhool jaa
Vo jo mil gaya usse yaad rakh, jo nahi mila, use bhool jaa!

Vo tere naseeb ki baarishe kisi aur chhat pe baras gayi,
Vo dil-e-beqaraari mein aankho se jo baras gaya, usse bhool jaa!!

… samjho sab kuchh sambhal gaya !!

ik hawaa ka babula, uthte hi pighal gaya
ik ummid ka paudha, ugte hi kuchal gaya

ik dariya ki talaash mein, aakhri saans talak
ik hiran tha, jo sehra mein chalta hi chal gaya

ik umra kat gayi uski… haalaat ko badal ne mein
haalaat se bojhal… becharaa khud hi badal gaya

ik cheez suni hai… dosti kehte hai vo jise
thukra diya aakhir, jab matlab nikal gaya

ik bachpan ke khilone sa, dhool jamaa karne ko
rakh diya tha maale pe, jab zara sa dil bahal gaya

ik chot si khudurti hui, jism ke libas tale
ghaav naasoor bane, man aukal-be-kal gaya

ik hasi ka gubbara, kabhi lab par aaya hi nahi
ik khushi ka suraj tha jo saher mein hi dhal gaya

ik guldaste mein sajaa rakkhe the humne kai raaz apne
na chahte hue bhi aaj dil unhe lafzo mein udhel gaya

… ik baar saans ruk jaye, fir samjho sab kuchh sambhal gaya !!

ehsaas

teri garm bahon ko aaj bhi odh kar sota hun main
teri saanso ki mahek se aaj bhi madhosh hota hun main
tere kesuon ko aaj bhi apni ungliyo se sehrata hoon main
teri rooh ke aaine mein khud ko aaj bhi dekh paata hoon main

tere jism ka ehsaas aaj bhi vaisa hi barkaraar hai
tere badan ki khushboo se aaj bhi dil ki duniya gulzaar hai
tere haath ko apni do hatheliyo mein rakhkar
nigahon se haal-e-dil sunane ka silsila bhi jaari hai

meri bezubaan aankhen teri silvato ka aaina bankar
mujhe roz saher mein jhinjhodke jagaa deti hai
main mehsus karta hoon ye sab, in ehsaaso ko jee nahi paata
Phir bhi, vo ehsaas hai jo zinda hai aaj bhi, sasns le raha hai

kaash hum thodi der aur saath jee paate, tum aur main,
khair, in ehsaaso ka main shukriya kaise karoon
ki tumhe ab tak mujhse jod ke rakhnewale vohi to hai
ye ehsaas hi to hai, jo humko jode rakhenge……… hamesha

Dil mein arzoo ho gehri agar muskarane ki,
Nakaamyabi mein bhi vo shohrat dhoondh leti hai.

Manzil ka chehra saaf hai jo uski aankhon mein,
Pata-thikana khud-ba-khud dhoondh leti hai.

Itni guzaarish hai mere dost, tu maayus na hona.
Tujhko kya maaloom, teri muskurahat ko meri gazal dhoondh leti hai.

Kuch is tarah mohabbat kar ummeed-e-zindagi se,
Ki jaise teri har saans uski khushboo dhoondh leti hai.

Zaroori hai…

waverlight2.jpg

Kathin hai raaste magar, chalna zaroori hai
Lamba hai safar magar, tey karna zaroori hai

Apne sapno ko aankhon mein basaaye rakhunga
Aaj inme nami hai to kya hua, kal uska jharna zaroori hai

Hausle hil jaate hai raahon mein aksar
Par gir kar uthne ke liye, girna zaroori hai

Raaton ke sannate itne bhi nahi gehre,
Subah to honi hi hai, thoda intezaar zaroori hai

Iraade behek sakte hai, kadam bhi gumraah ho sakte hai
Manzil paane ka junoon atal hai magar, fir aur kya zaroori hai

Gar vishawas aur ummid saath hai to kuch namumkin nahi,
Aur hai bhi to uska mumkin hona zaroori hai

Jhoom uthega man jab sulajh jaayengi uljhane
Khushiya to milti hai sabko, par unhe rakh paana zaroori hai

Samna karo to Kuch nahi tikta der tak
Mushkile khud-hi to mitne se rahi, unse takrana zaroori hai

Jaanta hoon ki sabra ka imtehaan zaroor hoga
Azmaaish tabhi hoti hai, jab uska hona zaroori hai

Gar haarne ki fikra karu to shaayad abhi haar jaaunga
Mujhe to jeetna hai bas, marne tak ladna zaroori hai

Sirf baaton se kuch saabit nahi hota
Dum hai, to dikhana zaroori hai

Apni awaaz ko dabaneka main nahi aadi
Main zinda hoon aur zindaa nazar aana zaroori hai

Jaise…

Aapse milke mehsus hua…

Jaise hawaa ka narm jhonka
Jaise baarish ki pehli boond
Jaise baansuri ki dhun

Jaise jhoomte jazbaat
Jaise khushiyo ka tyohar
Jaise gunjta hua samandar
Jaise saahil pe pohchi hui naav
Jaise gaurav ka bhes
Jaise machalte mansoobe

aur jaise… ek umra jeene ka ehsaas!

Vo yun aaye, ki laga
jaise phirse saans le li humne

haar-jeet ki as-man-jas mein
maut se, zindagi jeet li humne…

hum shukr-a-guzaar hai humare, ki
unse mohabbat kar li humne…!

Is raat ki subah nahin?

memory-graph.jpg

kuchh beetein hue palon ki taqeed hai
ya kuchh adhuri khwahisho ka hisab
chand haseen yaadon ka gubar hai shaayad

na nikah hai na meri maiyat
na ummiden na tamanna-e betaab hai
zindagi ka sirf ek pal hai shaayad

phir kyun khaas hai ehsaas is pal ka
kuchh aise hi pal jo chhoot gaye hai kahin
unhi palon ka aaghaz hai shaayad

vo zamaana alvida ho gaya kabse
jab aapas mein lafz girte aur hansi chhalakti rehti thi
ab to batiyaan ne ko bhi kaazi bulaenge shaayad !!
