there was no difference between life and death in love ~ Mirza Ghalib

Hazaaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle
Bahut niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle

Nikalna khuld se aadam ka sunte aaye hain lekin
Bahut be-aabru hokar tere kuuche se hum nikle

Mohabbat mein nahin hai farq jeenay aur marnay ka (2)
Usi ko dekh kar jeetay hain, jis kaafir pe dam nikle

Hazaaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle
Bahut niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle

Khuda ke vaaste parda na kaabe se uthaa zaalim (2)
Kaheen aisa na ho yaan bhi wahi kaafir sanam nikle

Kahaan maikhaane ka darwaaza Ghalib aur kahaan vaaiz (2)
Par itna jaantay hain kal voh jaata thaa ke ham nikle

Hazaaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle
Bahut niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle…
