Jaadoogari nigaah ki

(Original poetry by @kaunquest)

जादूगरी निगाह की समझाके जाइये 
आये है होश में अभी अभी न जाइये 

पहलू में आज आपके जो बेरंग होगये 
कहते है गुल वो आप से महकाके जाइये 

लिपटी दिल से आप के जो राज़दार है 
नाम उस किताब में मेरा लिखकरके जाइये 

जुगनू ख़याल-ए-यार के अपने चिराग है 
सुबह कभी तो लाइये घर आके जाइये 

होने लगे है हम भी कुछ मशहूर शहर में 
ऐसे ही रोज़ देखिये मुस्काके जाइये 

Jaadoogari nigaah ki, samjhaake jaayiye 
aaye hai hosh mein abhi, abhi na jaayiye... 

Pehloo mein aaj aapke, jo berang hogaye 
kehte hai gul vo aap se, mehkaake jaayiye 

 Liptii hai dil se aap ke, jo raazdaar hai 
naam us kitaab mein meraa, likhkarke jaayiye 

jugnuu khayaal-e-yaar ke, apne chiraag hai 
subho kabhii to laayiye, ghar aake jaayiye 

 hone lage hai hum bhi kuch, mashhoor shehar mein 
aise hi roz dekhiye, muskaake jaayiye

Ajay, I am always mesmerized by the imagination of poets. You have some nice ideas in this song (poem).

One issue I notice is that of weight (wazan). In Urdu poetry, wazan makes quite a bit of difference. I see the first sher is getting slightly out of weight.

For example, "aaye hai hosh mein abhi, abhi to na jaayiye" would be in wazan as "aye abhi hain hosh mein, abhi na jaiyee". However, the latter takes away some of the intensity from the "iltejaa" (request) made in it.

Like it a lot. Can you write something on "the good memories of the past"?
