Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Poem Lyrics



अपने होने पे मुझको यकीन आ गया Lyrics in Hindi
पिघले नीलम सा बहता हुआ यह समां
नीली नीली सी खामोशियाँ
न कहीं है ज़मीन
न कहीं आसमां
सरसराती हुयी टहनियां, पत्तियां
कह रही हैं की बस एक तुम हो यहाँ
सिर्फ मैं हूँ मेरी सांसें हैं और मेरी धडकनें
ऐसी गहराइयाँ
ऐसी तनहाइयाँ
और मैं सिर्फ मैं
अपने होने पे मुझको यकीन आ गया

Apne Hone Par Mujhko Yaqeen Aa Gaya Lyrics in English
Pighle neelam sa behta hua ye sama
Neeli-Neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahin hai zameen, na kahin Aasmaan
Sarsarati hui tehniyaan, pattiyaan
Keh raheen hai ki bas ek tum ho yahaan
Sirf main hoon
Meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein
Aisi gehraiyaan, aisi tanhaiyaan
Aur main sirf main
Apne hone par mujhko yaqeen aa gaya

जिनको पहनके होंटों तक आ जाए वोह 
आवाज़ की बाहों में बाहें डा…
