• 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/>
Ab Haqeeqat Nazar Aaye To Use Kya Samajhun!
    Kis Ko Qatil Main Kahun Kis Ko Masiha Samajhun;
    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!
    ~ Ahmad Nadeem Qasimi
  • Jo Nahi Aata Uska Intezar Kyon Hota Hai;<br/>
Kisi Ke Liye Apna Yeh Haal Kyon Hota Hai;<br/>
Waise To Iss Duniya Mein Kafi Cheezein Pyaari Hain;<br/>
Jo Nahi Milta Usi Se Pyaar Kyon Hota Hai!
    Jo Nahi Aata Uska Intezar Kyon Hota Hai;
    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!
  • Jane Kis Mor Pe Le Aayi Hai Zindagi;<br/>
Band Hain Dareechey Tamam Na Koi Kinara Dikhai De;<br/>
Nahi Maloom Ulfat Kee Hai Kaun Si Manzil;<br/>
Ki Tere Siwa Ab Na Humein Guzara Dikhai De!
    Jane Kis Mor Pe Le Aayi Hai Zindagi;
    Band Hain Dareechey Tamam Na Koi Kinara Dikhai De;
    Nahi Maloom Ulfat Kee Hai Kaun Si Manzil;
    Ki Tere Siwa Ab Na Humein Guzara Dikhai De!
  • Ai Khuda Kisi Ko Aisi Zindagi Na De;<br/>
Zindagi De To Yun Bebasi Na De;<br/>
Dil Mein Rahe Sada Chahtein Yaar Ke Milan Kee;<br/>
Par Na Ho Sake Mulaqat Unse Aisi Koi Mazboori Na De!
    Ai Khuda Kisi Ko Aisi Zindagi Na De;
    Zindagi De To Yun Bebasi Na De;
    Dil Mein Rahe Sada Chahtein Yaar Ke Milan Kee;
    Par Na Ho Sake Mulaqat Unse Aisi Koi Mazboori Na De!
  • Mere Marne Ke Baad Kisi Ko Koi Khaas Farq To Nahi Hoga;
    Bas Ek Tanhayi Royegi Ki Mera Humsafar Chala Geya!
  • Dil Hi To Hai Na Sang-o-Khisht, Dard Se Bhar Na Aaye Kyon;
    Royenge Hum Hazar Baar Koi Humein Sataye Kyon;
    Daer Nahi, Haram Nahi, Dar Nahi, Aastaan Nahi;
    Baithe Hain Rehguzar Pe Hum Gair Humein Uthaye Kyon!

    Translation:
    It is only a heart, not stone or mortar, why should it not fill with pain,
    We will wail a thousand times, why should anyone torment us.
    It is not a temple, mosque, a dearly beloved's door, nor a patron's entryway,
    We are wayfarers, why should anyone evict us!
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
  • Dil Tootega To Fariyad Karoge Tum Bhi;
    Hum Na Rahe To Humein Yaad Karoge Tum Bhi;
    Aaj Kehte Ho Hamare Paas Waqt Nahi;
    Par Ek Din Mere Liye Waqt Barbaad Karoge Tum Bhi!
  • Ai Subah Main Ab Kahan Raha Hun;
    Khwabon Hi Mein Sarf Ho Chuka Hun;
    Sab Mere Bagair Mutmain Hain;
    Main Sab Ke Bagair Jee Raha Hun!

    Meaning:
    Sarf = Expenditure
    Mutmain = Quiet
  • Dillagi Mein Dil Ko Hum Kaisa Rog Laga Baithe;<br/>
Zindagi Ko Chorh Kyon Maut Ko Gale Laga Baithe;<br/>
Humne Samjha Tha Dil Lagakar Dil Ko Chain Milega;<br/>
Aisi Lagi Chot Ke Dil Ko Bedard Se Dard Laga Baithe!
    Dillagi Mein Dil Ko Hum Kaisa Rog Laga Baithe;
    Zindagi Ko Chorh Kyon Maut Ko Gale Laga Baithe;
    Humne Samjha Tha Dil Lagakar Dil Ko Chain Milega;
    Aisi Lagi Chot Ke Dil Ko Bedard Se Dard Laga Baithe!
  • Hum Ne Mana Ki Taghaful Na Karoge Lekin;
    Khaak Ho Jayenge Hum Tumko Khabar Hone Tak;
    Partawe-e-Khur Se Hai Shabnam Ko Fanaa Ki Taleem;
    Main Bhi Hun Ek Inayat Kee Nazar Hone Tak!

    Translation:
    I agree that you will not remain indifferent but,
    I will be dust by the time you become aware of me,
    The sun's ray teaches a dewdrop how to vanish,
    I live because you have not bestowed the grace of your attention upon me.
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
