Sabse bada Mukam ...


A poem with a lil usage of urdu in it but i have given meanings of the words in bold hoping tht a reader nt well-versed with urdu would also be able to grasp what is being conveyed..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Hasil thi unki mohabbat, teri rehmat thi Ei-Mushaahit 
{rehmat - blessing,Mushaahit - God }
safar kat raha tha madhoshi mein, aisa tha mera musaahib
{musaahib - companion}

Magar dil mein hazaaroon manziloon ko paane ki thi aarzoo 
{aarzoo - wish,aspiration}
har manzil ho ek naya mukaam beshumaar, aisi thi justajoo
{mukaam - pinnacle,beshumaar - extravagant,justajoo - Desire }

Kashmakash ke bhavar mein ulfat ki kashti thi, 
{Kashmakash - dilemma,bhavar - whirlpool,ulfat - love}
Nakhuda tha main, meri khwahishein bani patvaarein thi... 
{Nakhuda - boatsman, patvaarein - oars}

Garoor, ghamand aur vishwas tha ki akeyle ahle-duniya ko karenge hasil,
bhawar mein dagmagate hue dekha humne sirf unki palkoon mein saahil...
{ahle - whole,palkoon - eyes, saahil - shore}

Aaj main nakhuda hoon magar patvar uski muskaan hai,
uski aaghosh mein guzre zindagi, ye khwahish sabse bada mukaam hai...
