Lagi ik Umr!

Lagi ik umr lekin
phir samajh mein aa gai mujh ko
mukhalif samt chalti
her hawa batlaa gai mujh ko
k apni zindagi jeenay ka yeh
behtar qareena he
saharay dhoondna chhorro
saharay baantnaa seekho
keh yeh roshan haqeeqat he
sahara dhoondnay waalay
sada tanha hi rehte hen

    ye ek sad poem hy.
    ye poem sachi b hy.
    haqiqat udas q krti hy!
    shayad 'umeed' lagany waly udas hoty hn. or haqiqat bhoolny waly bhi.
    m ny bachpan me ek sher parha tha.
    'm Tujh sy na maangu, to na maangu ga kisi sy.
    m Tera hun, Tu mera Khuda, mera Khuda hy' (Report) Reply
