Mohsin Naqvi

(1955 - 15 January 1996 / Sadat, Punjab / Pakistan)

Zikr-e-shab-e-firaq se wahshat use bhi thi

zikr-e-shab-e-firaq se wahashat use bhi thi
meri tarah kisi se muhabbat use bhi thi

mujh ko bhi shauq tha naye chehron ki did ka
rasta badal k chalne ki adat use bhi thi

us rat der tak wo raha mahw-e-guftagu
masruf main bhi kam tha faragat use bhi thi

sunata tha wo bhi sab se purani kahaniyan
taza rafaqaton ki zarurat use bhi thi

mujh se bichar k shahar main ghul mil gaya wo shakhs
halanke shahar bhar se raqabat use bhi thi

wo mujh se barh k zabt ka adi tha ji gaya
warna har ek sans qayamat use bhi thi

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
