best of urdu poetry

Ahmad Faraz


“Faraz” Ab Koi Sodaa Koi Junoo.n Bhi Nahi
Magar Qaraar Se Din Kat Rahay Hon Yun Bhi Nahi

Lab-o-Dehan Mila Guftuguu Ka Fun Bhi Mila
Magar Jo Dil Pe Guzarti Hai Keh Sakuun Bhi Nahi

Na Jaanay Kiun Meri Aankhain Barasnay Lagti Hain
Jo Sach Kahuun Tou Kuch Aisa Udaas Hun Bhi Nahi

Meri Zabaa.n Ki Luknat Se Badgumaa.n Na Ho
Jo TU Kahay Tou Tujhe Umer Bhar Miluun Bhi Nahi

Dukhon Ke Dhair Lagay Hain Ke Loog Baithay Hain
Is Diyaar Ka Mein Bhi Hun Aur Hun Bhi Nahi

“Faraz” Jaisay Diya Qurbat-e-Hawaa Chaahay
Wo Paas Aaye Tou Mumkin Hai Mein Rahuun Bhi Nahi
