वापिस लौट औओ

 वापिस लौट औओ

कहां चले गए तुम

 देखो पीडित है मन

सूख गया है दिल उपवन

सूखी सरिता,सूखा झरना

क्या एेसे ही है मुझे नित मरना।

 

मां विहल है

पिता रहे सिहर

भाई उदास,बहन सरल

मैं पी रही नित नए गरल।

 

बच्चों की किलकारी

नहीं गूंजी है घर में

जब से गए हो तुम

वे तो रहते हर दम गुमसुम।

 

वापिस लौट आऔ

नहीं मेरा ह्रदय दुखाओ

संत्पत मन पर

गिर रही बिजलीयां सारी।

 

कई गिद मंडरा रहें हैं

नित्य मुझे डरा रहे हैं

और मैं सिमटी सी

         संकुचित सी

         वचिंत सी

बैठी हूं आस लगाए।

 

क्यों लौटकर नही आऔगे

मुझे फिर नही हंसाओगे?

 

मानो कि दुख है

भाग्य हमारा विमुख है

आऔ मिलकर उसे ललकारें

बैठी हूंं मैं पलक पसारे

प्रियवर वापिस लौट आओ,अब और ना राह दिखाओ।
