Kabhee ham khoobsoorat thay…

Kabhee ham khoobsoorat thay

Kitaabon main basi khushbu ki maanind saans saakin thee

Bohat say ankahay lafzon say tasveerain banatay thay

Parindon kay paron per nazm likh ker,

door ki jheelon main basnain waalay logon ko sunaatay thay

Jo ham say door thay laikin, hamaray paas rehtay thay

Naye din ki musaafat jab kiran kay saath,

angan main utartee thee

Tu ham kehtay thay

“Ammi, titlion kay per bohat hee khoobsoorat hain”

Hamain maathay pey bosa do,,kay ham ko, titlion kay,jugnuon kay

des jaana hai

hamain rangon kay jugnoo,roshni ki titlian aawaz detee hain

Naye din ki musaafat rang main

doobi hawa kay saath khirki say bulaati hai

Hamain maathay pay bosa do…

Hamain maathay pay bosa do…

Hamain maathay pay bosa do…

-Ahmed shamim

 

 

[bosa= kiss, manind= like, titlyon= butterflies, musaafat= journey]

    Beautiful….brings back the memories…it was first sung in a PTV drama ( Sahira and Rahat Kazmi ). We used to live few houses away from Ahmed Shamim when this was sung..and Nayyara Noor voice adds to its beauty. Thanks man.🙂

    @ beeca
    couldn’t agree more to you, like always🙂 its not a ghazal by the way.

    @Zios
    Its nice to know that you actually know the poet in person. I would love to read more of him.

    @aashley
    the melody n the voice makes one weep like the lady in the vdo.

    @lubz

    my taste is great when it comes to clothes, movies, poetry and women😉😛 I am a proud gemini!!

    But jokes aside, I can totally relate to you.
