Hum jo toote to is tarah toote - Poem by Ahmad Faraz

Hum jo toote to is tarah toote
jaise hathon se girr k pathar par

koi shafaaf aaiina toote
jaise palkon se toot tha aansoo

jaise seene main ik kamaan toote
jaise umeed ki nazuk daali

barg mosam main na gahaan toote
jaise aankhon main khwab ki doori

waqt e takmeel se ulajh jaye
jaise pairon tale zameen nikle

jaise sar par yeh asmaan toote
jaise ik shaakh pe bharosa kia

is pe jitne thay aashiyaan toote
jaise wehshat se hosh aa jaye

jaise ta dair main dheyaan toote
ab jo raiza howay to sochte hain

kis nay dekha tha tootna apna
hum jo toote to raayegaan toote
