kab yaad mein tera saath nahi


kab yaad mein tera saath nahi
kab haath mein tera haath nahi
sad shukr ki apni raaton mein
ab hijr ki koi raat nahi

maidaan-e-wafa darbaar nahi
yaan naam-o-nasab ki poochh kahaan
aashiq to kisi ka naam nahi
kuchh ishq kisi ki zaat nahi.. 

nasab – lineage

jis dhaj se koi maqtal mein gaya
wo shaan salaamat rehti hai
she jaan to aani jaani hai
is jaan ki to koi baat nahi…

dhaj – attitude; maqtal – place of execution

gar baazi ishq ki baazi hai
jo chaahe laga do darr kaisa
jo jeet gaye to kya kehna
haare bhi to baazi maat nahi.. 

– Faiz Ahmed Faiz

there isn’t a moment when memory doesn’t have you as its companion. there isn’t a moment when this hand doesn’t hold yours. amongst the nights we share, there isn’t a night of separation. if not in reality, in my inner world, that is true.
