Aaj phir ek khayal aaya ,
Khud se roothey barso hue yeh yaad aaj aaya..
Roothna to tujhse tha,
par tu tha hi kab apna, jo rooth paatey tujhse hum..
Ek shayad sirf hum hee to apne the, baki sab ko to gair paya.
Wafa kii har gair se humne,
par bewafayi khud se hi kar gaye.
Pathar ki duniya me insaan dhundney nikle the,
par khud hi patthar ban gaye.
Manaa lete hain yun toh har roothey hue ko hum,
Par khud ko manaye barso hue,
Yeh yaad humein aaj aaya..
Today a thought came by,
Making me think it’s been ages I met myself.
It should be you, whom I should be annoyed to never taking pain to meet,
But when you were mine ? that I could express my anger to you.
May be it was Me for myself only, rest all were strangers.
Always I had been loyal to everyone,
but proved disloyal to myself only in being loyal to all.
In this cold hearted world was trying to search a human heart, but ironic got turned into cold hearted one myself.
Always I am able to make peace with all, but it’s been ages I had made peace with myself.
All thoughts came by today and made me wonder what enemy I had been to myself.
