कैसे ताल मिलाऊँ मैं कुछ तो मेरी मजबूरी है| कुछ मुझको जल्दी भी है। फूल बनाने की कोशिश में| कैसे कली खिलाऊँ मैं। कुछ दिल पर चोटें ज्यादा हैं| कुछ मन पहले से भरा हुआ। नई चोट दिल पर लाने की| कैसे गली बनाऊँ मैं।| कुछ तो जहन भी अलग-अलग है| कुछ मन की भी दूरी है। नजदीक रहा बेशक जीवन भर| कैसे पास बुलाऊँ मैं। कुछ तो दिल में उमंग नहीं है| कुछ मन पहले से मरा हुआ। नई चाल में आने वाला| कैसे ताश बनाऊँ मैं।|
