Cinders and Ashes, Ashes and Cinders

Khaaq mein mil jaana hai sab kuchh
Phir uss khaaq ki mitti mein,
Kya dhoondhogay tum, un vaadon ko,
Jo na jal kar raakh huay?
In jalti-bujhti aankhon kay toh
Saaray sapnay hi khaak huay.
Dekhna mujhay yun sotay huay
Itna sukoon, jo tumhari aankhon mein bhi na mil paaya,
Us shithil kaaya mein na jaanay kahaan se aaya!

Maun mein sama jayega sab kuchh
Phir uss maun ki chattanon mein
Kya sunn paogay apnay sach ki goonjein,
Jo na tumharay alfaaz huay?
Unn dheemi maddham aawazon ke toh
Saaye bhi na-paak huay.

Sunn na mere jeevan ke sannatton ko
Unn ki bulandiyin mein mera khuda mainay paaya

Khaaq huee jab meri kaaya.
