Koi to hai...

Vo aakhrii gulaab yaa ke vo ashq kaa katraa
Yaa alvidaa ka lafz...
Dil to nahin jo aajkal, Seene mein sulagtaa hai...

raakh se raakh tak ka safar to hogayaa khatam
ab kis manzil ko doondne chale, ummeedon ke saath gham
*********************************************************************

Koi to hai, deewaar-o-dar mein, ke ghar sisaktaa hai
Soye nahin, vo raat bhar mein, kyaa Dar sa lagtaa hai

Log kehte hain tere kuuche mein
aahaT sii hai, ajeeb sa aalam hai
Yahaan apnaa bhi hai aana jaana,
roke hamen, koi to bataaye, ye kaise charche hai..

Phir aansuuon mein kaajal ghulaa hai
Zulf bikhre hai, vo savar rahe hai
Na hum nazar mein na aaine mein,
na jaane kyon, naam apnaa hai, us honT pe shikwaa hai

Bas mein hota to baDke chuute
gale lagaate, hum kuch to kehte
ye do jahaan ke faasle mitaate..
haan waqt ka, rukh hum badalte, ye aakhri armaan hai...

Wha....shirshak hee ek umeed ke naam se jagi hai.."Koi to hai.." bahut khoob tarike se ek umeed ki kiran nazar aayee hai iss nazm mein...daad hee daad kabool farmayein..! :)
Sirf ek guzarish hai...jahan 'to hai wahaan tho...'h' na lagayein...pronunciation (oocharan) badal jaata hai...try it and you will realize it :)

Keep writing...
cheers

Dawn, thanks for the comments. I will remember to use 'to' from now on then. Today, I changed a few words on this one..
