Ik tu

Ek ki aankhein kohinoor
Ek ki adaayein maasha-allah
Ek ka chehra chaand chakor
Aur, aur ek thi tu.

Us chehre, un aankhon, un adaaon pe
… Kadam-kadam pe dil de haara
Ye bhool gaye ke aapse milkar
Ye dil tha hi kahaan hamaara?

Ek ki muskaan natkhat pari-si
Use dekh khushi bhi muskuraati thi
Aur gusse se nazar milaati thi toh
Rom-rom main mohabbat utth aati thi
Un muskuraati nasheeli balaaon pe…

Ek ki baatein meetthi man-mohini
Bas kho jaata jab who kucch kehti thi
Alfaazon main rang bhar deti thi who
Har lafz main dhun-si behti thi.
Un jaadooi apsaraaon pe…

Ik tu hi thi, aye dilruba
Na dhun-e-jannat, na noor-e-heer
Na chaand ka tukda na anaarkali
Na mallika-e-ilm na maahjabeen

Par yeh dil ko kain samjhaaye?
Doob hi chuka bechaara
Chaahke bhi aapse milkar ise
Koi aur nahi gavaara.
