Mir Taqi Mir

(1723 - 1810)

a jayen ham nazar jo koi dam bahut hai yan
mohlat basan-e-barq-o-sharar kam bahut hai yan

yak lahza sina kobi se fursat hamein nahin
yani ki dil ke jane ka matam bahut hai yan...

Kya kahun tum se main ke kya hai ishq,
Jaan ka rog hai, bala hai ishq.

Ishq hi ishq hai jahaan dekho,
Saare aalam mein bhar raha hai ishq.

Ishq maashuq ishq aashiq hai,...

Laga na dil ko kya sunaa nahin tu ne,
Jo kuch ke Meer ka is aashqui ne haal kiya..

Sharminda hon ge, jaaney bhi do imtihaan ko,
Rakhe ga tum ko kon aziz, apni jaan se..

Sakht kaafir tha, jis ne pehle “Mir”,
Mazhab-e-ishq ikhteyaar kiya..
