Jaate Jaate Vo Mujhe Achi Nishani De Gaya

The lyrics of all the ghazals of Jagjit Singh sahab is truly remarkable. Here is another example, where the words are beautiful beyond expression. Without further adieu..

Jaate Jaate Vo Mujhe Achi Nishani De Gaya
Umr Bhar Doharaunga Aisi Kahani De Gaya

Us Se Mein Kuch Pa Sakun Aisi Kahan Umid Thi
Gham Bhi Vo Shayad Bara-e-Meharabani De Gaya

Sab Havaen Le Gaya Mere Samandar Ki Koi
Aur Mujh Ko Ek Kashti Badabani De Gaya

Khair Mein Piyasa Raha Par Us Ne itana to Kiya
Meri Palakon Ki Kataaron Ko Vo Pani De Gaya
