iss baar dilli

iss baar dilli murjha gayi hai

vahi thand hai

vahi saal hai

vahi din hai

vahi raat hai

par iss baar; sawaalo ke jaal me dilli aa gayi hai

pehle hasti thi, iss baar dilli murjha gayi hai

dekhe jab aansu dilli ke

to dil aisa toota ki jud na sake

dekhi darti dilli jab

aise taakat gayi baaju se

ki dam lagaye na bane

jabse rooh bhuli hai dilli

bani hai jaise bheegi billi

iss dilli ko jagana hoga

vaapas aane ka plan bana na hoga

dilli bhul chuki hai shayad

ki me bhul chuka hu purani dilli ko

unn galiyon ko unn qil lo ko

ab nayi dilli pe dil aa gaya hai

uski nayi aday-egi, rang roop aur aatma ab dil behlati hai

mujhe ye nayi dil ab zyaada bhaati hai

par dilli, samsyaein bohot hai

tum tez chalne ke chakar me gaon ke budhe baap ko bhul na jaana

vo ab bhi tumhare intezaar me betha hai

vaapas aa jao; uska dil behlana

aur me?

me bas tumhe dekh ke dil bhar lunga

tum jaisi ho bohot ho

mat badlna

badlogi to log sauda karenge

aur ye saude vaali dilli meri dekhi bhaali hai

fas gayi to samjhogi ki aakhir andar se ye kitni kaali hai

purani baatein yaad karogi

to uss jhuth ko kaise saaf karogi?

jo kabhi sach nahi tha

pyaar hi hai sirf ek sach

mujhse behtar kaun jaanta hai?

jo uske bina jeene ki zidd me chal diya tha

aur haar kar ghar lauta tha

tab

tab bas dilli ki aankhon ne hi bachaya tha

me jaanta hun sach, isliye mujhe kehne do

dilli ke dard tum mujhe sehne do

tum rehne do

main sambhal lunga sab kuch

bas tum hasti raho

vaapas aa gaya hun

dekhne,

ki aakhir kaunsi baat sata gayi hai

puchne

aakhir kyu dilli murjha gayi hai?
