Urdu poetry

I’m not much into urdu poetry but few lines I came across are worth a read :

Hui muddat ki Ghalib mar gaya par yaad aata hai,
Woh har ek baat pe kehna ke yoon hota to kya hota.

itna khaali tha andaroon mera,
kuch dino to khuda raha mujh main.

Pal bhar mein tamam umer ki sochein badal jati hain
jin rahon per chaltey hain wohi, rahein badal jati hain

karney ko kia nahi kartey log muhabbat mein
sirf hamarey liye hi kyun? rasmein badal jati hain

sochta hoon jane kaise? kah paoon ga main us say
milta hoon to dil ki sari batein badal jati hain

chahe “Manzil” “Dushwar” ho aur “Duur” bhi
humsafer us jaisa ho to musaftein badal jati hain

yun to “Raat” ka alam haseen hota hai, madhosh bhi
magar”chand”dekhoon to meri ratein badal jati hain

mat chaho,k mujhe aadat nahi itna chahne walon ki
yeh na ho log kahein, jald hi adatein badal jati hain

Masoom Mohabbat ka bas itna fasaana hai
Kaghaz ki haveli hey, baarish ka zamaana hai.

Koi Mujh tak Pohanch nahi sakta
Itna Aasaan to hai pata mera …
