Romantic Poetry in Urdu

Poetry given below is from the famous poet Nasir Kazmi:

 

dil dharakne ka sabab yaad aaya

wo teri yaad thi ab yaad aaya

aaj mushkil tha sambhalna ae dost

tu musibat mein ajab yaad aaya

 

A few lines from the legendary Bulleh Shah:

 

Ranjha Ranjha karde hun mein aapey ranjha hui

sado meinun dheedo ranjha heer na akho koi

Ranjha mein wich mein rajnhe wich ghair khyal na koi

mein nahi wo aap hai apni aap kare dil joi

 

Selected romantic poetry in Urdu from Jaun Elia:

 

ji hi ji mein wo jal rahi ho gi

chandni mein tehel rahi ho gi

surkh aur sabz waadion ki taraf

wo mere sath chal rahi ho gi

 

Munir niazi is a famous Urdu poet. Few lines from his poetry:

 

un se nain mila ke daikho

yeh dhoka bhi kha ke daikho

doori mein kia bhaid chupa hai

iss ka khoj laga ke daikho

kisi akeli shaam ki chup

Geet puraney gaa ke daikho

Aaj ki raat buhut kaali hai

Soch ke deep jala ke daikho

 

And few romantic poetry lines from the great Parveen Shakir:

 

Apne sard kamre mein

mein udaas bethi hun

neem waa darichon se

num hawaein aati hein

mere jism ko chu kar

aag se lagati hein

tera naam le le kar

mujh ko gud gudati hein

kash mere par hotay

tere paas urh aati

kaash mein hawa hoti

tujh ko chu ke laut aati

mein nhi magar kuch bhi

sang dil riwajon ke

aahne hisaron mein

umar qaid ki mulzim

sirf ek larki hoon!

 

Habib Jalib, the revolutionary poet, few lines from his collection:

 

yeh aur baat teri gali mein na aayen hum

laikin yeh kia ke shehr tera chorh jayen hum

uss ke baghair aaj buht jee udaas hay

jalib chalo kahin se usay dhoond laye hum

 

Noshi Gilani is another famous Urdu poet. Few lines from her poetry.

 

Hijr ki shab mein qaid kare ya subhe visaal me

acha maula teri marzi tu jis haal mein rakhe

khail yeh kaisa khail rahi hai teri muhabbat

ek pal ki sarshari dey or dinon mein malaal rakhe

mein ne saari khushbooein aanchal se baand rakhein

shayad in ka zikar tu apne kisi sawal mein rakhe

 

Wasi shah is another famous Urdu poet. Romantic poetry in Urdu is perhaps incomplete without his collection:

 

us ki aankhon mein muhabbat ka sitara hoga

ek din aaye ga wo shakhs humara hoga

tum jahan mere lye seepyan chunti hogi

wo kisi aur hi dunya ka kinara hoga

zingadi! ab ke mera naam na shamil karna

gar yeh tay hai ke yahi khail dubara hoga

jis ke honay se meri saans chala karti thi

kis tarah uss ke baghair apna guzara hoga

yeh achanak jo ujala sa hua jata hai

dil ne chupke se tera naam pukara hoga

ishq karna hai tu din raat usay sochna hoga

aur kuch zehen mein aaya tu khasara hoga

yeh jo pani mein aaya sunehri sa gharoor

uss ne darya mein kahin paaon utara hoga

kon rota hai yahan raat ke sannaton mein

mere jaisa hi koi hijar ka mara hoga

mujh ko maloom hai junhi mein qadam rakhon ga

zindagi tera koi aur kinara hoga

jo meri rooh mein baadal se garjte hein wasi

uss ne seenay mein koi dard utara hoga

kaam mushkil hai magar jeet hi loon ga uss ko

mere maula ka wasi junhi ishara hoga
