Kuch alag si thi uss chehre ki jalakh,
Jaise suraj ki kiran se roshan hota falak.
Tha uski har khoobi ko dil mei samaya,
Sachi jaise khudaya.
Ek aawaz se jiski khilta tha har din,
Aaj lagta hai hua arsa tere bin.
Aawaz teri hui yu nam,
Bas isi baat ka hai gam.
Samay ne hai aisa khel rachaya,
Jisse aaj tak kabhi nhi koi bach paaya,
Kami toh bohot hai khalti,
Teri surat dekh ek umeed ki kiran hai khilti.
Zindagi ko jeena sikhaya,
Par tere bina jeena hi kaha aaya.

जिन्दगी: एक आशा
एक आशा की किरण हैं यह जिन्दगी,
आशा है टूटते सपनो का सहारा
आशा है डूबती किश्ती को किनारा,
रख आशा की है हौसले तेरे बुलंद
ना कर अपनी आशाओं को एक कमरे में बन्ध,
ऊड़जा की तेरी हर राह है सुनहरी
तेरे रास्ते से है तेरी हर उड़ान गहरी,
हर इंसान तुझे अपने से कम पायेगा
पर समय आने पर तू ही सिकंदर कहलायेगा,
बदल दे किस्मत,
अपनी निराशा मे ढूँढ आशा
क्युंकि जिन्दगी तेरी नहीं हैं कोई तमाशा,
एक आशा की किरण हैं यह जिन्दगी
टूटते को सहारा हैं, डूबते को किनारा हैं।

I Am A Free Spirit
I soar high in the sky;
As I own wings of ambition to fly,
I am a storm as I break shackles of hypocrisy,
I dance with determination to put your ego down,
I embrace my tears;
As I rule my fears,
I'm a dreamer, an enthusiast
I'm a rebel, a leader
With freedom i'm a mystery;
Because I build my own history,
I grow every second
because I’m a phoenix and that is my reality,
Enough to bring down the world's brutality,
And that’s how they all know me,
A free spirit,
who owns no limit.

The Last Touch
The Last Touch of yours brought me into senses,
Gave me strength to climb all the fences;
Wished this touch to last few more hours,
Because the time was ours.
All I wanted was to hold you a bit tighter,
But, I know you were a long term fighter.
If I knew that this touch was your last,
I would have told the time not to be so fast.
Losing you was my biggest fear,
But you gave me the power to bear.
We had to share a lot, endless stories,
Pushing away all my worries;
From the sleepless nights,
To our all non-sensical fights.
I survived because of your selfless care,
But my dear Time, this wasn't fair.
But I crave for that Last Touch.

She was more like a warrior to me as throughout my life I have seen her fighting with her health issues, and inspite of all struggles she played her each and every role to the best. She is the reason behind for whatever I am today. And my every little success I owe to her.
