Nanhe Farishtay : An Ode to The Peshawar Kids


Nanhe Nanhe aakhon mein
Saje the Sapne hazaar;
Umeedon ke ghode bhaag rahe the..
Saaton samundar paar!

Lipat ke apne hi rang mein,
Abhi khoj rahe the dhoop;
Deshshatgard ka pehli baar,
Dekha Itna ghinauna roop

Khelte khilte bachpan ka
Ghot diya gala yun..
Syahi ke neele rang mein
Ghul gaya mera lahu..

Abhi Subah hi to mangi thi
Ammi-Abbu ne dua..
Itni chhoti umar mein hi
Unse kitni door hua!!

Aa rahe hai hum Maula,
Ab Jannat ko banayenge,
Tere naye paathshale,
Ko Khoob dil se Sajaayenge!

Pooch ke Uski Raza
Tumko hum farmayenge!
Yun Na rona jaane pe mere..
Laut ke hum jald hi aayenge

Jism hi to hai yeh mera
mitti mein Kiya dafan
Umeeden ab bhi kaayam hai
Use na pehnana Kafan!

Atma meri lau hai
Yun na bujhne paayega..
Tu bhi kabhi na kabhi..
Apne Farishto ko bulwayega

Aayenge tab ban ke tere
Nanhe Farishte hum
Tere shahadat ke din
Tujhe le jaane sang!
