Koi ummid bar nahin aati

MIRZA GHALIB

koī ummīd bar nahīñ aatī
koī sūrat nazar nahīñ aatī

maut kā ek din muayyan hai
niind kyuuñ raat bhar nahīñ aatī

aage aatī thī hāl-e-dil pe hañsī
ab kisī baat par nahīñ aatī

jāntā huuñ savāb-e-tā.at-o-zohd
par tabī.at idhar nahīñ aatī

hai kuchh aisī hī baat jo chup huuñ
varna kyā baat kar nahīñ aatī

kyuuñ na chīḳhūñ ki yaad karte haiñ
merī āvāz gar nahīñ aatī

dāġh-e-dil gar nazar nahīñ aatā
bū bhī ai chārāgar nahīñ aatī

ham vahāñ haiñ jahāñ se ham ko bhī
kuchh hamārī ḳhabar nahīñ aatī

marte haiñ aarzū meñ marne kī
maut aatī hai par nahīñ aatī

kaaba kis muñh se jāoge ‘ġhālib’
sharm tum ko magar nahīñ aatī
