MIL JAATI HAI HAR CHEEZ IBAADAT SE

Bachpan mein logon sey suna tha ki mil jaati hai har cheez ibadat sey

Dil karta hai ki ab aazmaa loon dua kar ke apne parwar digaar sey

Na jaane kitne sholon ko liye apne jigar mein firtey hain kab sey

Unko dhoondhtey huye chaltey hain ab lekin mulakaat na hoti hai un sey

Yeh toh nainsaafi hai ki wo milta nahi jinko maanga tha maine maalik sey

Waada kiya aur sab waadon ko nibhaya par kyun unko chheen liya mujh sey

Jo jakham khaya hai aur jo jahar piya hai ab kayse bachoon us dukhde sey

Intzaar ki bhi hadd hoti hai ab ham jiye ya fir mar jaaye unki bala sey

Jab jindgi jinda dili ka naam hai toh kyun unko  door kiya hai mujh sey

Aysa kyun nahin ho sakta hai ki meri dilruba waapas aajaye fir sey

 

Ek Aag Lagi Hai Dil Mein

Ab ek aag laga hai dil mein thoda jal se bujha do par hawaayen to inko na do

Yeh aag jo dhadhak rahi hai seene mein bhadak jaayegi ab koi sadaayen bhi na do

Jitney bhi jahar mila hai jeewan mein hamko sab apne hi logo ne diye hain

Ab to tum bhi nahi ho yahan is jindgi ko kaun duwayen de dukh dard se bhare hain

Aysa ho jaaye ki palat kar aajaawo agar tum to mera jina khushhaal ho jaaye

Meri jeene ki chah phir aajaayegi mera jewan chaman chain se bhar jaaye

Saath dena hi hai to ayse door door rah kar mujhko sadaayen to na do

Bula lo hamko apne hi paas ya aajaawo mere pass mujhko sajaayen to na do

Is toote dil ke dhadhakti aag ko bujha do ab inko koi hawaayen to na do

Hawa dena hai to aysa do ki ham yahan na rahe aur tum bhi yahan na raho

CHAMAN KHIL UTHEGI

Meri akkal toh chakra gayi hai is duniya ki haal dekh kar

Koi chaahne wala chala jata hai hamko yahin pe chor kar

Jab kisi ki madhur yaaden hamko sataati rahen aa aa kar

Ayse akelepan mein main kidhar jaawoon iss dilko le kar

Duniya ke sabhi yaar muskuraatey rahe mere is haal par

Main jalata rahoon apne dukh dard ki shamma yahin par

Lakhon gam ki lao seene mein thartharati rahe raat bhar

Jab baansuri si surili aawaz aake jagaye hamko raat bhar

Purani yaaden nayee ban ke aati rahen samney raat bhar

Unki yaadon ke chaand tarey maddratey rahen raat bhar

Diwaane ki tarah main phirta rahoon sab kuchh haar kar

Yeh jina bhi koi jeena hai jab dildaar nahin rahi ghar par

Koi toh mere ghar aangan mein diya jala jaye phirse akar

Sab chaman khil uthegi mere duniya ki nayi haal dekh kar

Another Ode to My Beloved Wife Saroj

(after 18 months of her passing away)

 

I just want to turn back the clock of my life to when I heard her say,
That I could be her charming prince and she would love me all day
What will I do you know, I would build another Saroj Niwas as my nest

So that all the world could see me rejoicing my love life again with my guest

My lovely princess that I chose will live forever with me to start my life anew

I will plant the soul of my pretty lotus in the pond that will be bright and new

I will plant roses in the garden nearby but there would be no thorns to pierce my heart

All the shady trees will wipe my tears and there would be stones to bruise my heart

But I do not know how to turn back the clock that have stolen the hours away

I know not how to remove the thorns and rocks that are hurting me everyday

I want to live that same love life once again but I am told that gone is that day

If I want to do this, I will have to slay the dragon that takes human life away

Prince Lakhan and the Princess Saroj will then live their love life forever as they want

No dragon would ever come to separate them but bless them to live, as they want.
