Nooraan

 

Roz oh os kabar te aaya kare,
Baal ke diva te mudd jaaya kare.
Nooraan osda naa par dil di siyaah,
Siyaah hi burqa reshmi paaya kare.
Aakhde ne vich javaani giraj oh,
Nit navaan dil maar ke khaaya kare.
Kattdi ik raat oh jis aalne,
Umar bhar panchi oh kurlaaya kare.
Bhoore bhoore kes te mukhadde da til,
Saari basti vekh lalchaaya kare.
Badal jaanda rukh havaavaan da tadoun,
Haik lammi la ke jad gaaya kare.
Sadd ke reh jaaya kare dandaasa,
Naal houtthaan de jadon laaya kare.
Dukhan lag jaaya karan kaliyaan de dil,
Sharbati jad nain matakaaya kare.
Aakhde ne naujavaan ik manchala,
Pyaar paake de geya os nu dagaa.
Jouk ban ke pi geya os da lahu,
Choop leeta marmari angaan chon ta.
Zakhmi kar ke sutt geya nainaan di neend,
Doul ke kitey tur geya gholli hinna.
Chaardi si roz jis nun dil da maas,
Shikara ban ke udd geya si oh huma.
Yaad aa jaandi jadon os di nuhaar
Aandaraan vich raddakada ohda sarkadda.
Sochdi ki bewafa hai aadmi,
Be wafai hi taan hai osda sila.
Ban ke rehna si je aadam di gulaam
Janam kyun lita si taan maayi havaa.
Ttheek hai har cheez je hai be wafa,
Os da hak si oh vi ho jaaye be wafa.
De ke hauka vechdi saste oh saah,
Fazar da taara hai ajj teekan gavaah.
Jisam ohda baraf naalon vi safed
Lekh ohde raat naalon vi siyaah.
Nit navaan patan te naviyaan beddiyaan
Nit navey ohde baadbaan ohde malaah.
Raat har labhdi navaan taara koi,
Har subha labhdi naheen manzil di raah.
Peendi moumi seeniyaan di nit tarael,
Chattdi houttaan toun oh havasaan di savaah.
Ban na sakki karbala seeney di peedd,
Ho na sakki pher vi banjar nigaah.
Haukkeyaan di ohde ghar aayi baraat,
Hanjuaan sang ho geya os da nikaah.
Beh ikkalli katadi hijaraan de sout,
Gaahndi rehndi raat din yaadaan de gaah.
Sadeya os naamvar ik chitrakaar.
Yaaradde di os nu dassi nuhaar.
Chitra do, ik aapna ik yaar da,
Khoon apne naal karvaaye tiyyaar.
Kabar patt ke chitra dafnaaye gaye,
Naal dafnaaye gaye hanjuaan de haar.
Kabar naedde khu vi khudvaaya geya,
Chaandi di ajj teek hai osdi nisaar.
Aakhde ne ajj vi koh-kaaf toun -
Nahaaun aave roz ik pariyaan di ddaar.
Baal di os kabar te oh nitt deeya,
Roundi rehndi oh raat din julfaan khilaar.
Os raahe jo vi raahi langhda,
Jhalliyaan vat pucchdi osnu khalaar.
Dittha je kitey mera bodiyaan vaaladda,
Neele nainaan vaaladda kitey ohda yaar?
Aakhde ne saal kai hundey chale.
Oudaan hi ajj teek oh deeva baley.
Jad kadey vi taiz vagdi hai hava,
Vich havaavaan mahak jahi ik aa raley.
Hichkiyaan di ajj vi aave avaaz,
Kabar nedde je koi aashiq khaley.
Har amaavas di haneri raat nu,
Aake outhe baitthde ne dil jaley.
Lae ke os deeve chon boond ik tael di,
Yaar de houtthaan te har koi maley.
Rounde laa ke dhhaasana os kabar naal,
Hijar di looni jinhaan de hadd galey.
Duur os vaadi ‘ch oh tibbiyaan cho paar
Naal mere jo koi ajj vi chaley.
Luddchhe pai ajj teek vi nooraan di rooh,
Odaan hi ajj teek oh deeva baley.
