انتظار ۔ فیض احمد فیض

 

گذر رہے ہیں شب و روز تم نہیں آتیں

ریاضِ زیست ہے آزردہِ بہار ابھی

مرے خیال کی دنیا ہے سوگوار ابھی

 

جو حسرتیں تیرے غم کی کفیل میں  پیاری

ابھی تلک میری تنہائیوں میں بستی ہیں

طویل راتیں ابھی تک طویل ہیں  پیاری

 

اُداس آ  نکھیں ابھی اِنتظار کرتی ہیں

بہارِ حسن پہ پابندیِ جفا کب تک

یہ آزمائشِ صبرِ گریز پا کب تک

 

قسم تمہاری بہت غم اُٹھا چکا ہوں میں

غلط تھا دعوہِ صبرِ شکیب آ جاوٗ

قرارِ خاطرِ بیتاب تھک گیا ہوں میں

इन्तेज़ार – फ़ैज़ अहमद फ़ैज़

 

गुज़र रहे हैं शब ओ रोज़ तुम नहीं आतीं
रियाज़ ए ज़ीस्त है आज़ुर्दा ए बहार अभी
मेरे ख़्याल की दुनिया है सोगवार अभी

 

जो हसरतें तेरे ग़म की कफ़ील में प्यारी
अभी तलक मेरी तनहाइयों में बस्ती हैं
तवील रातें अभी तक तवील हैं प्यारी

 

उदास आँखें अभी इंतेज़ार करती हैं
बहार ए हुस्न पे पाबन्दी ए जफ़ा कब तक
ये आज़माइश ए सब्र ए गुरेज़ पा कब तक

 

क़सम तुम्हारी बहुत ग़म उठा चुका हूँ मैं
ग़लत था दावा ए सब्र ओ शकेब आ जाओ

क़रारम ए ख़ातिर ए बेताब थक गया हूँ मैं
