The Book of Poems - II

Page V

                         
   Manzar hae wohi thathak rahee hoon
   Hairat se palak jhapak rahee hoon

   Yae tu hae ke mera wahma hae!
   Band aankhon se tujh ko tak rahee hoon

   Jaise ke kabhee na tha ta'ruf
   Yoon milte huve jhijhak rahee hoon

   Pehchan! Mein teri roshni hoon
   Aur teri palak palak rahee hoon

   Kaya chain mila hae-sar jo us ke
   Shano'n pe rakhe sisak rahee hoon

   Ik umr hui hae khud se ladtey
   Ander se tamam thak rahee hoon

                        - Parveen Shakir
