Dil hee tou hai

December 7, 2007

Dil hee to hai na sang-o-Khisht dard se bhar na aaye kyon ?
royenge ham hazaar baar, koee hamein sataaye kyon ?

Dair naheen, haram naheen, dar naheen, aastaan naheen
baithe hain rehguzar pe ham, ghair hamein uthaaye kyon ?

Haan wo naheen khuda-parast, jaao wo be-wafa sahee
jisko ho deen-o-dil azeez, uskee galee mein jaaye kyon ?

‘Ghalib’-e-khasta ke baghair kaun se kaam band hain ?
roiye zaar-zaar kya, keejiye haay-haay kyon ?

________ Ghalib
