Thakan to agle safar k liye bahana tha - Poem by Iftikhar Arif

thakan to agle safar k liye bahana tha
use to yun bhi kisi aur simt jana tha

wahi chirag bujha jis ki lau qayamat thi
usi pe zarb pari jo shajar purana tha

mata-e-jan ka badal ek pal ki sarshari
suluk khwab ka ankhon se tazirana tha

wahi firaq ki baten wahi hikayat-e-wasl
nai kitab ka ek ek warq purana tha

qaba-e-zard nigar-e-khizan pe sajti thi
tabhi to chal ka andaz khusrowana tha
