Khudaaya

Raat ke sukoon bhare sannaato me,
Theher jaate hai kadam mere,
Aur aankhein aasmaan ko taraashti hai,
Khojti hu ek sitara khud ke jaisa,
Unn arbo ki bheed me bhi,
Jo ho mujhsa akela.
Dil ki talaash aakhir puri hui,
Jab ek ki roshni nazar se milte hi,
Meri rooh ko chhoo gayi.
Fir chand lamhein beetein,
Hum dono ke darmiyaan,
Ankahi-ansuni baaton ki guftagu jab hone lagi,
Baaki sab taare bhi hogaye hairaan.
Pucha mene fir uss anmol sitaare se –
Inn arbo ki bheed me – kaise tu apni pehchaan banata hai?
Ya kabhi kabhi ghabrakar,
Khud ki chamak ko hi bhul jaata hai?
Taara fir has kar bola –
Bheedh hai, tabhi toh apni hasti dikhata hu,
Apni roshni, auron ki tarah,
Main khud hi banata hu.
Tarashaa mene khud ko jab,
Akelepann ki gehraaiyon me,
Mili mujhe hausle se jagmagaane ki qaabiliyat,
Magar mila na mujhe koi aisa,
Jo ho saka mujhse wabasta,
Bhula nahi main fir bhi apni roshni ko,
Jagmata raha, taaki mil sake mujhe koi,
Khud ke hi jaisa.
Hulchul kuch kardi iss taare ne mujh me,
Hogaya behad anmol yunn hi bas fir wo mere,
Samet liya usne apni timtimati roshni me,
Mera andar ka bhi chupa andhera.
Uska milna,
Jaise rooh se rooh ka milan tha.
Magar mera taara jo tha,
wo toh arbo sadi pehle hi,
Hogaya sifar tha.
Pyaar ki lau bann ke fir raha,
Wo mere mann ki dunia main,
Mil kar bhi nah mila,
Isme koi ruswaayi na thi,
Mila jab wo mujhe,
Mili mujhe khudaaya tha.
