• Kahan Tak Aankh Royegi Kahan Tak Kiska Gham Hoga;
    Mere Jaisa Yahan Koi Na Koi Roz Kam Hoga;
    Tujhe Paane Kee Koshish Mein Kuch Itna Ro Chuka Hun Main;
    Ki Tu Mil Bhi Agar Jaye To Ab Milne Ka Gham Hoga!
    ~ Wasim Barelvi
  • Kyon Hijr Ke Shikwe Karta Hai Kyon Dard Ke Rone Rota Hai;
    Ab Ishq Kiya To Sabr Bhi Kar Is Mein To Yahi Kuch Hota Hai!
    ~ Hafeez Jalandhari
  • Kabhi Kabhi Yaad Mein Ubharte Hain Naqshe Mazi Mite Mite Se;
    Wo Aazmaish Dil O Nazar Kee, Wo Kurbatein Si, Wo Fansle Se;
    Kabhi Kabhi Aarzoo Ke Sehra Mein Aake Rukte Hain Kafile Se;
    Wo Sari Baatein Lagav Kee Si, Wo Sare Unvaan Visal Ke Se!
    ~ Faiz Ahmad Faiz
  • Kabhi Ro Ke Muskraye, Kabi Muskura Ke Roye;<br/>
Uski Yaad Jab Bhi Aayi, Use Bhula Ke Roye;<br/>
Ek Uska Hi Naam Tha, Jise Hazar Bar Likha;<br/>
Jitna Likh Ke Kush Hue, Usse Jyada Use Mita Ke Roye!
    Kabhi Ro Ke Muskraye, Kabi Muskura Ke Roye;
    Uski Yaad Jab Bhi Aayi, Use Bhula Ke Roye;
    Ek Uska Hi Naam Tha, Jise Hazar Bar Likha;
    Jitna Likh Ke Kush Hue, Usse Jyada Use Mita Ke Roye!
  • Zakham Aisa Diya Ki Koi Dawa Kaam Na Aayi;<br/>
Aag Aisi Lagai Ki Paani Se Bhi Bujh Na Paayi;<br/>
Aaj Bhi Rote Hain Hum Unki Yaad Mein;<br/>
Jo Chod Kar Chale Gaye Aur Unhe Hamari Yaad Tak Na Aayi!
    Zakham Aisa Diya Ki Koi Dawa Kaam Na Aayi;
    Aag Aisi Lagai Ki Paani Se Bhi Bujh Na Paayi;
    Aaj Bhi Rote Hain Hum Unki Yaad Mein;
    Jo Chod Kar Chale Gaye Aur Unhe Hamari Yaad Tak Na Aayi!
  • Jab Se Usne Shehar Choda Har Raasta Sunsan Hua;
    Apna Kya Hai Sare Shehar Ka Ek Jaisa Nuksan Hua;
    Ye Dil Ye Aaseb Kee Nagri Maskan Sochun Vehmon Ka;
    Soch Raha Hun Is Nagri Mein Tu Kab Se Mehman Hua!
    ~ Mohsin Naqvi
  • Aaj Bhi Behta Hai Uska Diya Hua Zakham;<br/>
Main Chah Kar Bhi Use See Na Paaya;<br/>
Bas Kehne Ke Liye Hi Zinda Hun Main To Yaaro;<br/>
Par Marzi Ke Saath Kabhi Jee Na Paaya!
    Aaj Bhi Behta Hai Uska Diya Hua Zakham;
    Main Chah Kar Bhi Use See Na Paaya;
    Bas Kehne Ke Liye Hi Zinda Hun Main To Yaaro;
    Par Marzi Ke Saath Kabhi Jee Na Paaya!
  • Tu Khush Rahe To Main Muskuraunga;
    Kahin Bhi Ho Tu, Tujhe Na Bhula Paunga;
    Mere Gham Ka Tu Dard Na Lena;
    Ki Iss Dard Mein Bhi Main Sukun Paunga!
  • Har Bul-Hawas Ne Husn-Parasti Shiaar Kee;
    Ab Aabroo-e-Sheva-e-Ahl-e-Nazar Gayi;
    Nazare Ne Bhi Kaam Kiya Wan Naqaab Kee;
    Masti Se Har Nigah Tere Rukh Par Bikhar Gayi!

    Translation:
    Each common lover has become a fake priest of beauty,
    The distinction of the visionary lover has been erased.
    Looking itself performed the function of secreting you,
    Each blinded gaze refracted on the glories of your face.
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
  • Zuban Khamosh Aankhon Mein Nami Hogi;<br/>
Yahi Bas Meri Ek Dastan-e-Zindagi Hogi;<br/>
Bharne Ko Toh Har Zakham Bhar Jayega;<br/>
Kaise Bharegi Wo Jagah Jahan Teri Kami Hogi!
    Zuban Khamosh Aankhon Mein Nami Hogi;
    Yahi Bas Meri Ek Dastan-e-Zindagi Hogi;
    Bharne Ko Toh Har Zakham Bhar Jayega;
    Kaise Bharegi Wo Jagah Jahan Teri Kami Hogi!
