‘Tune Hi Toh’

Akansha Mittal, a student poet and storyteller from Gurgaon’s Girl Government College, sent us her poem for the ATKT.in Shortlist.

Kyuki tune hi toh mere pyaar ko parkha tha,
Kyunki tune hi mere pyaar ki harr berukhi ko saha tha,
Jab maine bewafai ki, tune hi usko apne dil mein khud ki amanat ki jagah di,
Meri harr baat ko tune zindagi me sabse pehli ahmiyat di,
Tune hi toh savera laya tha iss andhkar ke jeevan mein..

Haan, aaj tu thoda badal gaya hai, thode alag hain mijaaz tere,
Parr ye teri aashiqui hi hai jo mujhe zinda rakhti hai,
Aur marte dum tak mera vishwas hai tu aayega aur badlega aur iss zindagi me firse savera laayega..
