One of ma fav... by The Ghalib!

Har Ek Baat Pe Kehte Ho Tum Ke 'Too Kya Hai' ?
Tumheen Kaho Ke Yeh Andaaz-E-Guftgoo Kya Hai ?

Na Shole Mein Yeh Karishma Na Barq Mein Yeh Ada
Koee Batao Ki Woh Shokh-E-Tund_Khoo Kya Hai ?

Yeh Rashk Hai Ki Wo Hota Hai Ham_Sukhan Tumse
Wagarna Khauf-E-Bad_Aamozi-E-Adoo Kya Hai ?

Chipak Raha Hai Badan Par Lahoo Se Pairaahan
Hamaaree Jeb Ko Ab Haajat-E-Rafoo Kya Hai ?

Jalaa Hai Jicm Jahaan Dil Bhee Jal Gaya Hoga
Kuredate Ho Jo Ab Raakh, Justjoo Kya Hai ?

Ragon Mein Daudte Firne Ke Ham Naheen Qaayal
Jab Aankh Hee Se Na Tapka To Fir Lahoo Kya Hai ?

Woh Cheez Jiske Liye Hamko Ho Bahisht Azeez
Siwaay Baada-E-Gul_Faam-E-Mushkaboo Kya Hai ?

Piyoon Sharaab Agar Khum Bhee Dekh Loon Do Chaar
Yeh Sheesha-O-Qadah-O-Kooza-O-Suboo Kya Hai ?

Rahee Na Taaqat-E-Guftaar, Aur Agar Ho Bhee
To Kis Ummeed Pe Kahiye Ke Aarzoo Kya Hai ?

Bana Hai Shaah Ka Musaahib, Fire Hai Itaraata
Wagarna Shehar Mein 'Ghalib' Kee Aabroo Kya Hai ?

~The Ghalib

Zaat Adhoori!

Tum Bin Meri Zaat Adhuri
Jesy Koi Baat Adhuri

Hijr K Sare Din Hen Poorey..
Lekin Hy Hr Raat Adhuri..

Lafzon Ki Gehrai Mey Jhanko
Samjho Na Hr Baat Adhuri

Num Aankhen Or Sookhi Palken
Hoti Hy Barsat Adhuri

Mujh Se Mujh Ko Cheen Geya Saqi
Reh Gai Meri Zaat Adhuri?
