Neem ki meethi yaadein

Halke haathon se thapthapaate,
Woh nanhe pair mere patte bhi kuchal na paate!
Mere kadve shaakh woh shauk se chabaate,
Aur meethe ber dekh unke jeebh lablabaate.

Mein unke liye haath uthaakar
Aasmaan se hawaayein maang leta,
Aur apni jadon ki mutthi mein,
Dharti ko samet leta.

Din guzarte gaye, waqt kat ta gaya,
Ek din uthaa to dekha: Mein hi kat gaya.
Gilahriyon se un bachho ka pataa poocha,
To woh mooh pher kar doosre ped par chadh gaye.
Shaakh ki taraf dekha,
To who sharm se jhad gaye.

Barso beetein, ab to mitti par,
Woh nanhe pairon ke nishaan bhi guum hain kahin.
Zara socho, kuch yaad karo,
Kahin un bachhon mein se ek tum to nahin?
