MORE BYMirza Ghalib

    ghar hamārā jo na rote bhī to vīrāñ hotā

    bahr gar bahr na hotā to bayābāñ hotā

    had I not wept, this my abode, would have been desolate

    if sea were not a sea would be a desert incarnate

    tañgi-e-dil gila kyā ye vo kāfir-dil hai

    ki agar tañg na hotā to pareshāñ hotā

    of heart's constriction why complain, this faithless heart surely

    if would not be constricted then, would agitated be

    baad yak-umr-e-var.a baar to detā baare

    kaash rizvāñ dar-e-yār darbāñ hotā

    after a life of abstinence, he wouldn't make me wait

    if only Heaven's doorman was, the sentry at your gate

    ghar hamara jo na rote bhi to viran hota

    bahr gar bahr na hota to bayaban hota

    had I not wept, this my abode, would have been desolate

    if sea were not a sea would be a desert incarnate

    tangi-e-dil ka gila kya ye wo kafir-dil hai

    ki agar tang na hota to pareshan hota

    of heart's constriction why complain, this faithless heart surely

    if would not be constricted then, would agitated be

    baad yak-umr-e-wara bar to deta bare

    kash rizwan hi dar-e-yar ka darban hota

    after a life of abstinence, he wouldn't make me wait

    if only Heaven's doorman was, the sentry at your gate
