Dekha hai

Kabhi yaad kia to kabhi usse bhulaa kar bhi dekha hai
Iss be’mani dunya ko humne azmaa kar bhi dekha hai

Dhoka hai naya sa aur mein hoon adab-e-firaq se nawaqif
Us se nazdikiyan to kabhi faasla barhaa kar bhi dekha hai

Musavvir bhar nahi paata kissi bhi rang se iss khalla ko
Issiliye waqtan fa waqatan muskuraa kar bhi dekha hai

Munkir ho jaatay hain jab kahin uska naam koi leta hai
Uske afsanay ko dil mein kab se dabaa kar bhi dekha hai

Ke laut aye wo, kabhi diye vastey guzishta mohobbaton ke
Kabhi talkhion ka teer kamaan se chalaa kar bhi dekha hai

Dosti kya, koi humdardi bhi jataye to aetbar karte nahi ab
“Hote nahi sab aik jaisay” khud ko behlaa kar bhi dekha hai

Tumhe waffa seekhna hai to humari tareekhion ko parakho
Maujud rehti hai jab kabhi khud ko jalaa kar bhi dekha hai

Jalwon mein raakh to kabhi saleebon pe charha insaan
Tere aagaye ae khuda maine sarr jhuka kar bhi dekha hai

Tujhse nahi harjayi shayad apne naseeb se haaray hain
Issi khayal se hath ki rekhaon ko mitaa kar bhi dheka hai

Tumhari waahid adaa pasand ayee “Zaib” maut ko shayad
Ye jo saanson par tumne ehsaan jataa kar bhi dekha hai.
