    Saath (साथ)

    जब मंज़िलें धुंदली हों और जब रास्ते हो अनजाने क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब सासें फूलने लगे और चलना हो नामुमकिन क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब हौंसले हो तंग और जब हिम्मत न बन्धे क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब उम्मीदें जॉए बिखर और निराशा ही हाथ लगे क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब जेबें हो खाली और तेज़ भूक लगे क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब चिलचिलाती हो धुप और कहीं छाँव न दिखे क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब सब दामन चुरा लें और कोई मान न दे क्या तुम साथ दोगे जब सात वचन मैं लूँ ये और हाँ कह निभाऊँ उम्र भर उन्हें क्या तुम साथ दोगे

    I Believe

    Sunlight streams through my window But fails to lighten up my dark corners The corners of my vacant heart Life just passed me by While I sat making other plans A long winding highway with pain at every bend A journey spent in waiting for the next milestone Just tunnels without any light at the end Good things come to those who wait they say How much longer? How much further? No stopovers, no goodbyes No fleeting moments stolen from life Lifes just a one way track headed nowhere Hope is the fuel I run on And I still wait because I believe Yes, I believe

    Life In a Cliche

    I love to catch the morning sun in my eye Always believed there's a cloud with the silver lining somewhere in the sky I long to catch the winter morning breeze When it rains I relish the sight of the washed green leaves Yes there's a rainbow somewhere with a pot of gold For every ending there's a story still untold I know that good things come to those who wait That there will come a day when all the work is finished or when it is not too late I still feel the bitter truth is better than a lie That belief is in saying why not rather than…

    चौथ का चाँद

    एक ऐसी ही चौथ की रात थी जब एक चाँद बादलों में छिप गया फिर लौट के वो दिन आ गया एक चौथ फिर से आ गयी फिर आँखें यूँ ही नम होंगी यादें फिर क़ाबू को तोड़ेंगी वक़्त थमता नहीं किसी के जाने से फिर भी कुछ लम्हे वहीं ठहर जातें हैं लाख़ आंसुओं के बह जाने पर भी कुछ मंज़र आँखों का घर बना लेते हैं यक़ीन बस यही है के एक दिन समय संग पीड़ ये भी कम होगी फ़िलहाल नैन ये भीगे विचरते हैं एक झपक में एक बरस यूँ बीत गया किसी दिवाली दीप फिर जलेंगे उन दियों में रोशन फिर ख़ुशियाँ होंगी छटेंगे बादल…

    Mother

    I walk alone Trying to find a way back home I look for a landmark Yet I keep coming back to the start I am tired and strained The sights and sounds seem unfamiliar The shadows grow longer I am scared and frightened I see a light shining in the distance I open my eyes Yes, I am home A loving touch A hand runs its fingers through my hair It's you mother I am comforted by your tender loving care

    A Date with a Memory

    How does one prepare To face impending despair What do you do When you know the blues are going to hit you You see the pages of calendar turn A date with a memory awaits Passing time hasn't yet healed the burns Of a day when you were hit by a cruel twist of fate You try to move on Carefully treading down memory lane Past flashing images of a loved one gone The heart laments, aches and pains The day passes punctuated with awkward silences With the mind and heart attempting conversation What one says the other refuses Each year its the same situation Someday the mind hopes the…

    The Perfect Circle

    I pen these lines to say ‘Thank You’ on what my little one says is Friendship DayThere are indeed things to express and today’s as good as any other dayAlways maintained and truly believe that friends are the family one can chooseOur most potent weapons always ready at our behest to convince, corrupt or confuseTo all the friends who befriended me or I ever madeAt work, the university, the neighbourhood or first gradeClose or distant so many of you have had a role to playIn shaping me into the person I am from the proverbial clayTo those who really don’t fit the classical definition of a friendThe ones that are…

    Since You’ve Been Gone

    Since you’ve been goneBeen trying each dayTo find the strengthPick up the piecesAnd somehow move onDays run into daysYears begin to turn into yearsYes time has tried to be a friendBut the heartache won’t mendThere’s no easy wayI look aroundI see the world I’ve builtThe life I liveThere’s an emptinessDespite the happiness I foundSo much has changed for meYet so much has notMy first birthday had you carrying me in your armsAnd now my first one with you in my memory, my heart closer than you'll ever beMaybe it’s not going to changeThe way I feelGuess it’s meant to beThe emptiness is you driving meIt’s destiny even if it’s strangeSince…

    उलफ़त

    उनकी उलफ़त का ये आलम है के कोरे कागज़ पे भी ख़त पढ़ लिया करतें हैं ज़िन्दगी ऐसी गुलिस्तां बन गयी उनके प्यार मेंके कागज़  के फूलों में ख़ुशबू ढूँढ लिया करतें हैं हम तो फिर भी आशिक़ हैं मानने वाले तो पत्थर में ख़ुदा को ढूँढ लिया करतें हैं

    दिवाली

    इस बरस दिवाली के दियों संग कुछ ख़त भी जल गये  कुछ यादों की लौ कम हुई  कुछ रिश्ते बुझ गये  भूले बंधनों के चिरागों तले अँधेरे जो थे वो मिट गये बनके बाती जब जले वो रैन भर सारे शिकवे जो थे संग ख़ाक हो गये
