तेरे चले जाने का,
तुमको ना पाने का,
अकेला हो जाने का,
गम से ना उभर पाने का,
इस गम अपने अंदर दबाने का,
वक्त रहते सच ना देख पाने का,
पर सकून है.....
तेरे खुश हो जाने का,
धन दौलत का ख्वाब पाने का,
मेरी तरह गमों में ना बह जाने का,
अब travel वाले अरमानों का गला नहीं घोटते होगे,
Pretty dress को लेने से पहले प्राइस price tag नहीं देखते होगे,
Latest iPhone सबको दिखा के खूब फेंकते होगे,
Luxary staycations पे अच्छी धूप सेकते होगे,
आशा करता हूं......
