Ghazal! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

Arzu-e-sahar mein kiya karti
zindagi ko basar mein kiya karti

ashk behnay mein ik tabaahi thi
rokti na agar to kiya karti

mujh ko urrnay ka shoq tha hi nhi
baadalon per safar mein kiya karti

shehr veeraan, manzilen ma'adoom
aur tanha dagar- mein kiya karti

essi cheezon ki uss ko qadr na thi
apnay dil ko nazar mein kiya karti

saray shikway, gilay sbhi such thay
maanti na agar to kiya karti

Dil ki baazi mein haar behtar thi
phir bhala jeet kar mein kiya karti
