Meri Maa!

Maine na jana, maine na samjha,
Kab sara sama badal gaya…
Dil mei ab bhi hain bahut si batein
Jinko kehna ka samay shayad tall gaya…
Lagta hai sab kuch naya naya
Chayyi ho jaise koi nayi fiza…
Aaj bhi yaad hain wo beete din,
Jab kabhi hota tha din tere bin…
Yaadien mann par chhayi rehti thi,
Ghadiyan jaise tham jaati thi…
Mann karta tha bhaag kar aa jaun tere anchal mei,
Batadun tujhe ki tu rehti hamesha hai is dil mei…
Shayad mai ye kabhi tujhse keh na paaun maa,
Magar tere bin mai shayad reh na paaun maa!
