Darakht-e-jaan (Tree of life)

Darakht e jaan

Ek darakht ke tale se jo raah guzarti hai

Jahaan bhini-si dhoop chhaanv se chhanti hai

Us raah se hokar hi main roz guzarta hoon

Mann chahta hai, par main nahi theherta hoon

 

Kyunki mujhe aage ki or jaana hai

Kyunki mujhe apni manzil ko paana hai

 

Ye sochte hue main bina ruke chala aata hoon

Mann ki naa sun, zamaane ki soch jaata hoon

 

Par wo darakht har roz meri raah dekhta hai

Maano ki jaise wo mujhe rokta hai

Ki aye musafir chalna to saari umr hi hai

Aye musafir! kabhi kabhi theherna bhi zindagi hai

 

Kehta hai darakht ki do pal to tu sukoon ke jee le

Kehta hai wo ki in fizaon ko tu sanson mein pee le

 

Ye aala-zarfi hai uski, ki wo fir bhi raah dekhta hai

Apni chhaon-si palkon ko bichha ke rakhta hai

Aur doosri or main hoon jo use rozana mayoos kar guzarta hoon

Uske zarf ko nazar-andaaz kiye, main har roz nikalta hoon

 

Aise hi na jaane kab ek daur guzar gaya

Manzil to naa mili, par musafir zaroor reh gaya

Aur ek din fir us raah se jab main guzara tha

Raah wahi thi par wahan darakht naa tha

 

Par ab pachhtane ke siwa hai hi kya

Bina ruke chal ke bhi mila hi kya

Ab lagta hai sahi tha wo, ki sirf chalna hi nahi hai zindagi

Ab lagta hai sahi tha wo, ki theherna bhi hai zindagi

 

Kya pata ki kal afsos ke siwa kuch naa rahe

Aaj hi mojazaa hai zindagi, kal rahe naa rahe

Kal ki manzil ke liye aaj ke mojaze ko kyun khona

Jo mila hi nahi, use khone ke darr se kyun rona

 

Yahi hai zindagi, jo hath se nikal jayegi

Zara theher le, nahi to ye fisal jayegi

Musafir ho ke raah par chalna to achha hai

Par darakht tale kuch der theherna bhi achha hai

 

Ek darakht ke tale se jo raah guzarti hai

Jahan bhini-si dhoop chhanv se chhanti hai

Us raah se main aaj bhi guzarta hoon

Ab mann ki sun, main kuch der theherta hoon
