सब कुछ हो फिर भी सब न हो

जो अब तक होता आया
वो शायद अब न हो
ज़िन्दगी के लम्बे सफ़र में
दुःख भरी कोई शब् न हो

बचपना है प्यार है
यारी है दोस्ती है
हंसी है ख़ुशी है
उम्मीदें है ख्वाहिशें हैं

सपनो के टूटने पर
उम्मीदों के छूटने पर
उतना दर्द
शायद अब न हो

एक रास्ता था वो भी
एक रास्ता है ये भी
उस राह के छूटने पर
अकेलापन शायद अब न हो

नयी मंजिलों का इंतज़ार है
नयी राहों से मुझे प्यार है
इन राहों पर मिलने वाली मंजिलों में
सब कुछ हो
फिर भी सब न हो

  1. नयी मंजिलों का इंतज़ार है
    नयी राहों से मुझे प्यार है
    इन राहों पर मिलने वाली मंजिलों में
    सब कुछ हो
    फिर भी सब न हो

    kya likh diya yaar... mast panktiyaan likhi hian..

    and the pics along with it adds charm to whole aura that you have created!!!

  2. wah wah..bahut achi kavita hai!!

  3. Wah....
    And yet again I will say: "You are a thinker".

    The first picture reminds me of a picture of me and my sister...I was about 6-9 months old and my mom had me all secured in the back seat of my sister's (who was 4 at that time) tricycle, and my sister was apparently taking me for a ride!

  4. the thought is expressed beautifully...however..as years pass the experience of pain and disappointment...changes, but the intensity never lessens..if any thing it deepens...

    but hope your paths are always filled with happiness and good things..i know it is a bit unrealistic but!! ...still, that is what i wish for you..always :)

  5. Wah! Kya likha hai!
    Ek dum dil ko chu gaya...

  6. oye hoye ! kya gambhir kavita likhi hai aapne.. mazaa agaya ...

  7. is the surname misspelled?

  8. @ Geet
    aakhiri do line to mujhe bhi bahut achchi lagi... :)

    thanks :))

    @ Vaishali

    @ Jas
    ab kaa karen control nahin hota hai :P

    send me that picture :)

    @ Joy
    i am not sure about the intensity actually... i feel it depends on how much you want it to effect you... I would not really generalise how people deal with pain and dissapointment...

    and thank you hai ji for the wishes :)

    @ Swati

    @ Shivi
    :) maine koshish to ki ke thoda sa light kar doon par hui hi nahin :P chai ki patti thodi zyada pad gai :P

    @ Bhoomi
    thanks :)

    @ Burf
    haan bhai, i had corrected it par phir se galat ho gaya.. have corrected it again...

  9. i make that statement from some what extensive and intensive work with human experiences and emotions......over time only the external armour gets more efficient emotions do not get dulled !!...will have this dialogue some years hence may be...

  10. @ Joy
    and that is a very valid point... your experience with dealing with people makes your comments more authentic and closer to truth... I am not challenging what you said, just that I don't agree to a generalization !

  11. As a poetry by some unknown poet, I congratulate the poet. As feelings my brother is going through, I wish him happiness.

  12. @ anjuli

    @ Subbu
    aur agar poet aur brother ek hi ho to kya karega tu?

  13. Effervescent life - nothing stays constant but we still strive all our lives for it...

    loved the last two lines...

  14. I've asked my dad to hunt for that picture and a few others (they are visiting India at the moment). Many years ago we lost quite a few of the old pictures to flood damage. :(

  15. @ Ceedy
    you bet !!!

    I liked the last two lines as well :)

    @ Jas
    Oh !!! I hope dad can find those pictures... do share ok !!!

    @ Mayuri
