Jo Hawaa Mein Hai
jo havaa men hai, lahar men hai
kyon naheen vah baat
        mujhamen hai?

shaam kandhon par lie apane
zindagee ke roo-b-roo chalanaa
roshanee kaa hamasafar honaa
umr kee kandeel kaa jalanaa
aag jo
        jalate safar men hai
kyon naheen vah baat
        mujhamen hai?

roz sooraj kee tarah uganaa
shikhar par chaḌhanaa, utar jaanaa
ghaaTiyon men rang bhar jaanaa
phir surangon se guzar jaanaa
jo hansee kachchee umar men hai
kyon naheen vah baat
        mujhamen hai?

ek nanheen jaan chiḌiyaa kaa
Daal se uḌakar havaa honaa
saat rangon ke liye duniyaa
vaapasee men neend bhar sonaa
jo khulaa aakaash svar men hai
kyon naheen vah baat
        mujhamen hai?

'Rachna Aur Tum'
Ramanath Awasthi


meree rachanaa ke arth bahut hain
jo bhee tumase lag jaay lagaa lenaa

main geet luTaataa hoo(n) un logon par
duniyaa(n) men jinakaa kuchh aadhaar naheen
main aa(n)kh milaataa hoo(n) un aa(n)khon se
jinakaa koee bhee paharedaar naheen

aa(n)khon kee bhaaShaa to anagin hain
jo bhee sundar ho vah samajhaa denaa.
