mujh ko bhī tarkīb sikhā koī yaar julāhe


aksar tujh ko dekhā hai ki taanā bunte


jab koī taagā TuuT gayā ḳhatm huā


phir se bāñdh ke


aur sirā koī joḌ ke us meñ


aage bunñe lagte ho


tere is taane meñ lekin


ik bhī gāñTh girah buntar


dekh nahīñ saktā hai koī

maiñ ne to ik baar bunā thā ek rishta


lekin us saarī girheñ


saaf nazar aatī haiñ mere yaar julāhe!

mujh ko bhi tarkib sikha koi yar julahe


aksar tujh ko dekha hai ki tana bunte


jab koi taga TuT gaya ya KHatm hua


phir se bandh ke


aur sira koi joD ke us mein


aage bunne lagte ho


tere is tane mein lekin


ek bhi ganTh girah buntar ki


dekh nahin sakta hai koi

main ne to ek bar buna tha ek hi rishta


lekin us ki sari girhen


saf nazar aati hain mere yar julahe!
