दोस्ती है क्या !
रिश्ता या बंधन ?
नाम है अपनेपन का ,
रिश्ता है ,
अधुरेपन का।    
सहयोग है विश्वास का ,
नाम है
आत्मविश्वास का ,
खेल है
खिलौनों का
मेल है दिलों  का
एहसास है ,
कदमों का
बाधा है
मंजिलों की।
दर्द की दवा है
मर्ज़ का हल है।
निभाने का रिश्ता है
रखने वाला फ़रिश्ता है
स्वार्थ, छल, कपट ना हो
ऐसा पवित्र बंधन है।
