Treasure Island

Jan Nisar Akhtar

(14 February 1914 - 19 August 1976 / Madhya Pradesh / India)

Zindagii ye to nahiiN tujhko saNvaaraa hii na ho


zindagii ye to nahiiN tujhko saNvaaraa hii na ho
kuch na kuch teraa ehsaan utaaraa hii na ho

kuu-e-qaatil kii baRii dhuum hai, chal kar dekheN
kyaa Khabar, kuuchaa-e-dildaar se pyaaraa hii na ho

dil ko chhuu jaatii hai raat kii aavaaz kabhii
chauNk uThtaa huuN kahiiN tuune pukaaraa hii na ho

kabhii palkoN pe chamaktii hai jo ashkoN kii lakiir
sochtaa huuN tere aaNchal kaa kinaaraa hii na ho

zindagii ek Khalish de ke na rah jaa mujhko
dard vo de jo kisii suurat gavaaraa hii na ho

sharm aatii hai ke us shah'r meN ham haiN ke jahaaN
na mile bhiik to laakhoN kaa guzaaraa hii na ho

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
