Maine kya kamaya….

Kal raah mein chalte chalte, ek bohot purana dost mila mujhe
milte hi woh muskuraya, khusi se gale lagaya mujhe

Baatein karte huye mujhse poocha
“itne sheher, itne gaon ghooma, aakhir kya kamaya?
Nahi tuney koi gaadi kharidi, nahi tuney koi ghar banaya “

Main chup raha, kuch na keh paya;
kaise samjhata usey maine kya kamaya

Kaise mol lagata un unginat muskaan’o ka,
woh aankhon ki chamak, woh saath bitaye hue raaton ka

Kitno ke khusi mein khus hua, kitno ke gham mein ro pada;
kaise mol lagata un khilkhilati haseen, un bahaye hue aansuon ka

Kaise kehta usey ki maine naa koi gaadi kharidi,
na koi ghar bana paya;
sirf kuch dost banaye, kisi ke ghar mein raha
aur kisi ne dil mein basaya

Ab in lamhon ke sahare hi saari umar katjayegi chaine se,
in yaadon mein hi rehgaya aur ghar, gaadi ki fikar na kabhi sataya

Kaise batata usey ki aiye dost mere,
maine tujhe kamaya, teri yeh muskaan kamayi
Tera mujhko lekar yah fikar kamaya

Kaise samjhata usey ki maine kya kamaya……
