PRATEEKSHA
by Harivansh Rai Bachchan


Madhur Prateeksha hi jab itnee,
Priye
tum aate tab kya hota?

Maun raat is bhaanti ki jaise,
koi geet
veena par baj kar

Abhi abhi soi khoi si,
sapno mein taaron
par sir dhar

Aur dishaaon se prati-dhwaniyaan,

Jagrat swaro si aati hain
Kaan tumhaari taan kahin se, yadi sun
paate tab kya hota?

Tumne kab di baat,
raat ke soone mein
tum aane waale

Par aise hi waqt praan mann mere ho
uth-te matwaale

Saanse ghoom-ghoom phir-phir se,
asmanjas ke kshan ginti hain
Milne ki ghadiyaan tum nishchit yadi
kar jaate tab kya hota?
Utsukta ki akulaahat mein,maine palak
paanvde daale

Ambar to mash-hoor ki sab din, rahta
apne hosh sambhaale

Taaron ki mehfil ne apni, aankh bichha
di kis aasha se
Meri maun kuti ko tum aate dikh jaate
tab kya hota?

Baith kalpana karta hoon, pag-chaap
tumhaari mag se aati

Rag-rag mein chetan-ta ghulkar,

aansoo ke kan si jhar jaati

Namak dali sa ghul apna-pan, saagar
mein ghul-mil sa jaata
Apni baahon mein bhar kar priye, kanth
lagaate tab kya hota?

Madhur Prateeksha hi jab itnee, Priye
tum aate tab kya hota?
