This is a Ghazal written by Kaifi Azmi sahab in form of a tribute to
Guru Dutt. Guru Dutt (supposedly) committed suicide in 1964. Kaifi saahab wrote this and recited in an unreleased interview (sometime in early 80s).
I was lucky enough to obtain an audio copy of it. For those who love and/or understand Urdu Poetry will feel cherished listening to this small recording.
Rahne Ko Sadaa:
Rahne ko sadaa dahar me aata nahi koi
Tum jaise gaye aise bhi jaata nahi koi
Ik baar to khud maut bhi ghabra gayi hogi
Yun maut ko seene se lagata nahi koi
Darta hoon kahin khushq na ho jaaye samundar
Raakh apni kabhi aap bahata nahi koi
Saaqi se gila tha tumhe, maikhaane se shikvaa
Ab zahar se bhi pyaas bujhata nahi koi
Maana ki ujaalon ne tumhe daag diye the
Beraat dhale shamma bujhata nahi koi
