• Koi Mere Dil Se Pooche Tere Teer-e-Nim Kash Ko;
    Yeh Khalish Kahan Se Hoti Jo Jigar Ke Paar Hota!

    Translation:
    Ask my heart about your half-drawn bow,
    This anguish would not arise had the arrow passed through my body.
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
  • Zindagi Kee Rah Mein Raaste Badal Jate Hain;<br/>
Waqt Kee Aandhi Mein Insan Badal Jate Hain;<br/>
Sochte Hain Tumhein Itna Yaad Na Karein Lekin;<br/>
Aankh Band Karte Hi Irade Badal Jate Hain!
    Zindagi Kee Rah Mein Raaste Badal Jate Hain;
    Waqt Kee Aandhi Mein Insan Badal Jate Hain;
    Sochte Hain Tumhein Itna Yaad Na Karein Lekin;
    Aankh Band Karte Hi Irade Badal Jate Hain!
  • Barish Hui To Phulon Ke Tan Chaak Ho Gaye;
    Mausam Ke Haath Bheeg Ke Saffak Ho Gaye;
    Badal Ko Kya Khabar Hai Ki Barish Kee Chaah Mein;
    Kaise Buland-o-Baala Shajar Khaak Ho Gaye!
    ~ Parveen Shakir
  • Har Zakhm Kisi Thokar Kee Meharbani Hai; <br/>

  • Tere Naam Ki Thi Joh Roshni Use Khud Hi Tum Ne Bujha Diya;<br/>
Na Jala Saki Jise Dhoop Bhi, Use Chandni Ne Jala Diya;<br/>
Hun Gardishon Mein Ghira Hua, Mujhe Ab Apni Khabar Nahi;<br/>
Wo Jo Shaqs Tha Mera Rehnuma, Use Raaston Mein Hi Ganwa Diya!

    Wo Jo Shaqs Tha Mera Rehnuma, Use Raaston Mein Hi Ganwa Diya!
  • Paas Aakar Sabhi Door Chale Jate Hain;<br/>
Akele The Hum, Akele Hi Reh Jate Hain;<br/>
Ab Apne Dil Ka Dard Hum Kise Dikhayein;<br/>
Kyonki Marham Lagane Wale Hi Ab Zakhm De Jate Hain!
    Paas Aakar Sabhi Door Chale Jate Hain;
    Akele The Hum, Akele Hi Reh Jate Hain;
    Ab Apne Dil Ka Dard Hum Kise Dikhayein;
    Kyonki Marham Lagane Wale Hi Ab Zakhm De Jate Hain!
  • Nadaan Ho Jo Kehte Ho Ki Kyon Jeete Ho Ghalib;
    Kismat Mein Hai Marne Kee Tamanna Koi Din Aur!

    Translation:
    Ignorant are the ones who ask why Ghalib is still living,
    My fate is that I should yearn for death until some other day.
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
  • Kis Ko Qatil Main Kahun Kis Ko Masiha Samajhun;<br/>
Sab Yahan Dost Hi Baithe Hain Kise Kya Samajhun;<br/>
Wo Bhi Kya Din The Ki Har Veham Yaqeen Hota Tha;<br/>

    Sab Yahan Dost Hi Baithe Hain Kise Kya Samajhun;
    Wo Bhi Kya Din The Ki Har Veham Yaqeen Hota Tha;
    Ab Haqeeqat Nazar Aaye To Use Kya Samajhun!

    Kisi Ke Liye Apna Yeh Haal Kyon Hota Hai;
    Waise To Iss Duniya Mein Kafi Cheezein Pyaari Hain;
    Jo Nahi Milta Usi Se Pyaar Kyon Hota Hai!
