Epitaph

कह रहा हूँ दिल का फ़साना

ज़रा ध्यान से सुनना

के क्या पता तुम्हे इसमें 

ज़िन्दगी का फ़लसफ़ा मिल जाए

जिसे ढूँढ़ते हो ज़माने में सदियों से

इस कहानी में तुम्हे वो वफ़ा मिल जाए

इन स्याह लफ़्ज़ों  में कहीं किसी दिल को भी

तन्हा ही सही, थोड़ी सी जगह मिल जाए

ये जो हो गये हैं, अकेलेपन के कारण बीमार से

इनकी बीमारी को भी, क्या पता, यहाँ दवा मिल जाए

ये जो चराग है बुझने को तड़पते

खुदा की नेमत हो, और इन्हें जरा हवा मिल जाए
A friend of mine, asked what’s going to be written on your epitaph…….

How’s your story going to begin?

I didn’t know then, I know now!!!

How’s your story going to begin???

🙂

    Simply beautiful
    I am glad you know how yours is going to start,
    But mine? I have no idea!! It’s probably going to remain a mystery, and might as well start with a mystery.

      Firstly, thank you!!!
      I didn’t know mine until today,
      Ah!! Wouldn’t that be unique!!! A blank epitaph!!!

      After all do we need words to say something???

    Wah wah! Kya kaha hai. Itni serious baat ko itni khubsurati se bayaan karna koi asaan kaam nahi,aur tumne wahi bakhubhi kiya hai!
