Us Simt Mujh Ko Yar Ne Jane Nahin Diya

— Munir Niazi

us simt mujh ko yar ne jane nahin diya
ek aur shahar-e-yar main ane nahin diya

kuch aur waqt chahte the k sochen tere liye
tune wo waqt ham ko zamane nahin diya

manzil hai is mahak ki kahan kis chaman main hai
is ka pata safar main hawa ne nahin diya

roka ana ne kawish-e-besud se mujhe
us but ko apna hal sunane nahin diya

hai jis k bad ahad-e-zawal-ashna 'Munir'
itna kamal ham ko Khuda ne nahin diya

Baade jeg og mit Hjerte...
