मैले देखेको सपना

हिजो मैले देखे एउटा सपना

सपना मा त लग्यो बिपना झैँ त्यो सपना

भन्छु है त बिपना झैँ लाग्ने सपना मा देखेको कुरा मैले

देखे मैले सान्ति बिश्व भरि छाएको

मित्रता को भावना सबैको मनमा आएको

क्रन्दन, कोलाहल र चित्कार को माहोल बिश्व बाटै हटेको

सान्ति र सुरक्ष्याको बिगुल बिश्व भरि फैलिएको

महिला हिंसा बिरुध्ह सभै दाजु, भाइहरु लगेचन  है

अब दिदि बहिनि हरु ढुक्क संग हिड्ने छन् है

सभै निरङ्कुश ससक ले घुडा टेकेछन् है

जनता को सासन, जनता लाई सासन, जनता बाट सासन हुने रे है

सभै फुल हरु फुल्न र फक्रन पाउने छन् है

सभै बालबालिका हरु आमाको न्यानो काख र बाबा को छत्र छाया पाउने छन् है

रातो माटो र हरियो वन सबैले जोगाउने रे

कार्बन को मात्रा सबैले घटाउने रे

नेपाल तेस्रो मुलुक रहेन रे

चेतना, सान्ति र सीक्स्या ले हामी पनि पहिलो मुलुक भयेउ रे

हिजो मैले देखे एउटा सपना

सपना मा त लग्यो बिपना झैँ त्यो सपना



Patriotic.  I have always considered myself to be patriotic.  I’m sure part of that feeling comes from Dad always flying the flag on special holidays and his service during World War II. 836 more words

to see where that sun beam
