Ik Karang Ik Kahaani

 

Haanniyaan tere shehar valloun
Aa rahi hai ajj hava!
Maar dhinddi mukkiyaan hai -
Ro rahi saari fiza!
Nikal aayi hai chhapaaki
Taareyaan di arash te,
Maar palla abar da -
Gayi chann da deeva bujha!
Raat edaan saun rahi hai
Jis tarah habshan koi,
Phull amaltaas de
Peele jehe joodde ‘ch la
Vekh ke pagdaanddiyaan
Tere shehar vall jaandiyaan,
Aa rihae mere jigar de vich
Peed da ik zalzala!
Phull sooha aatashi -
Guhdda gulaabi jigar da,
Pher ajj maayusiyaan de
Adan vich hai khidd riha.
Pher nainaan di niaaeen -
Ho rahi hai ajj sairaab,
Pher khooha hikkaddi vich
Agg da hai gidd riha.
Lai sabar diyaan chhaapiyaan,
See dil nu vaaddaan keetiyaan
Gham da ijadd pher hai -
Dil de kiyaare phir reha!
Pher mere kaalje nu -
Dhu jehi hai pai rahi,
Yaad kar beete dinhu
Hai dil ‘ch paala chhidd riha!

Yaad hai ik vaar aidaan hi,
Hava si chal rahi!
Raat - raani raat de -
Pindde mehak si mal rahi!
Teriyaan mushki littaan vich
Mere houtthaan di kali,
Vekh saari gulfashaan si -
Taareyaan di jal rahi.

Aandaraan vich tere mere
Ho rahi si ik jaloon,
Mehak saadde jisam di si
Kahkashaan vich ral rahi.
Saaddiyaan gallaan ‘ch vadhada -
Ja reha si ik savaad,
Badaliyaan de mehal bati
Chann di si bal rahi!

Saan asi oh raat saari
Mil gale rounde rahe.
Raat bhar nainaan diyaan -
Jogaan aseen jounde rahe!
Ragadd mathe dehriyaan te
Roat kai sukhe asaan,
Bhar ke paleeyaan hanjuaan da
Tael saan chonde rahe!
Gutakade chitte kabutar -
Vaakana tere mehal vekh,
Meriyaan jhuggiyaan de jaale
Raat bhar rounde rahe.
Ghol kallar chaanani da
Ambaraan de daabadde,
Aas da maela vichauna
Raat bhar dhounde rahe!
Vikt pa ke hauli hauli
Saah mere chagale gaye.
Ho gayi jootthi javaani
Naen ho gadale gaye.
Havas da paapi phulera
Ittar kadd ke lai gaya,
Phull mehake roop de -
Ho hasar lai phugale gaye!
Chadd gayi tere deedeyaan te
Sone chaandi di ve paann,
Lakh saanna ton men laaye
Par na mudd badale gaye.
Chhambh tere iskh da -
Ik roz rakkadd ho gaya,
Mar gaiyaan ve ticharaan
Te duur udd bagale gaye!
Pher ik din meriyaan -
Kanna de parde cheerdi,
Langh gayi awaaz
Shehnai di kookaan maardi.
Ghull gaye saare garaan di -
Paunn vich tere suhaag,
Ja rahi si paalki
Veehveen sadi de pyaar di.
Motiyaan de bha tera.
