Khalish

jagjit-singh_03

Narm hawa ke jhonke, pedon ke patte lehlahate hain ab bhi,
Har taraf bahaar kaa nikhar hai ab bhi,
Nai subeh naye gul khilati hai ab bhi,
Falak pe taaron ke jhurmut timtimate hain ab bhi,
Rangon ke noor se sarabor hai fiza ab bhi,
Magar phir bhi koi kami hai jaise,
Ik khalish si basti hai in mein jaise,
Gulon ki narmiyon ke darmayaan,
Koi andekhi chubhan, koi tees si uthti hai jaise,
Ik beaawaaz udaasi kuch poochti ho jaise,
Kahaan kho gaye ho tum,who tarannum tumhare?
Aur woh makhmali aawaaz ke saaye?
Kahaan hai woh sukoon bhara ik ehsaas,
Woh ik ehsaas tumhare hone ka ………
Ki door kahin gungunate huye,
Phir apna koi naya naghma bun rahe ho tum,
Ki sacche suron ki chaandni barsa kar,
Phir phool khila rahe ho sehra sehra…

Waqt ki shaakh pe ab,
Na woh phool rahe,
Na woh sukoon bhara meetha ehsaas,
Waqt ke bereham bawander mein,
Kho gaye hon sab jaise…

Fiza ki saari rangeeniyon mein,
Khiza sa khalipan kyon hai?
Aaj phir dil hai kyon udaas udaas-
Ek adhurapan sa kyon hai?
Bas ik khalish si reh gayee hai,
Jo har sheh mein
Ab basa karti hai….
