ek baat purani kehni thi
jo baat zuban pe aati hai
fir chhan se kanch ka dil ho kar
wo bat bikhar si jati hai

ek baat purani kehni thi…

kuch yaad humari rehti thi
un patto ke har shakho me
un galiyo me, chowbaro me
jaha ful bichhaya karte the

jaha neend me simti hui aakhen
tumhe dekh k chowk sa jata tha
wo hasta tha, kabhi rota tha
par tumko dhundta rehta tha

us raat ki baat nirali thi
jis raat ko tum the paas mere
kisi aur jahan ki baat thi wo
kisi aur jahan me baste the

ek baat purani kehni thi….

na tum ye samjh paoge kabhi
na tumko samjh ye ati hai
jo baat jigar se utri hai
wo hoto me reh jati hai

kabhi fursat ki tanhaiyi me
ek dard ubhar si ati hai
jab naam tumhara leti hun
wo baat seham si jati hai

ek baat purani kehni thi….
