“hone tak…” – Mirza Ghalib  

“Aah ko chaahiye ik umr asar hone tak 

Kaun jeeta hai teri zulf ke sar hone tak

Daam har mauj mein hai halqa-e-sad-kaam-e-nihang 
Dekhen kya guzre hai qatre pe gauhar hone tak

Aashiqi sabr-talab aur tamanna betaab 
Dil ka kya rang karun khoon-e-jigar hone tak

Ham ne maana ke taghaful na karoge lekin 
Khaak ho jayenge ham tum ko khabar hone tak

Partau-e-Khur se hai shabnam ko fanaa ki taaleem 
Main bhi hoon ek inaayat ki nazar hone tak

Yak nazar besh nahi fursat-e-hasti ghafil 
Garmi-e-bazm hai ik raqs-e-sharar hone tak

Gham-e-hasti ka Asad kis se ho juz marg ilaaj 
Shamaa har rang mein jalti hai sahar hone tak”
