zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein laati hai humein


zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein laati hai humein
ye zameen chaand se behtar nazar aati hai humein

surkh phoolon se mehek uthti hain dil ki raahein
din dhale yun teri aavaaz bulaati hai humein

yaad teri kabhi dastak, kabhi sargoshi se
raat ke pichhle peher roz jagaati hai humein

har mulaaqaat ka anjaam judaai kyun hai
ab to har waqt ye hi baat sataati hai humein

– shahryar

at times as a knock on my door, at others as a whisper in my ear – in the final hours of the night i awaken to thoughts of you

a disarmingly simple nazm by shahryar, conveyed in a language that touches you without any literary dazzle. a quiet love, a serene demeanour, a certain honesty sear through these ordinary words. another gem from umraojaan.
