MORE BY Meer Taqi Meer

    hastī apnī habāb hai

    ye numā.ish sarāb hai

    my life is like a bubble now

    mirage-like appears this show

    nāzukī us ke lab kyā kahiye

    pañkhuḌī ik gulāb hai

    the softness of her lips is close

    to velvet petals of a rose

    chashm-e-dil khol is bhī aalam par

    yaañ auqāt ḳhvāb hai

    do let your heart's eye see this world

    tis but a dreamlike state unfurled

    baar baar us ke dar pe jaatā huuñ

    hālat ab iztirāb hai

    repeatedly to her address

    I go, lo, such is my distress

    nuqta-e-ḳhāl se tirā abrū

    bait ik intiḳhāb hai

    your brow inscribed upon your skin

    a line of poetry akin

    maiñ jo bolā kahā ki ye āvāz

    usī ḳhāna-ḳharāb hai

    when I spoke out, she did complain

    "that derelict is here again"

    ātish-e-ġham meñ dil bhunā shāyad

    der se kabāb hai

    this heart long burnt in sorrow's hell

    there is a barbecue like smell

    dekhiye abr tarah ab ke

    merī chashm-e-pur-āb hai

    just as a monsoon cloud appears

    these eyes of mine are full of tears

    'mīr' un nīm-bāz āñkhoñ meñ

    saarī mastī sharāb hai

    miir in her half-ope eyes there is

    the fullness of wine's heady bliss

    hasti apni habab ki si hai

    ye numaish sarab ki si hai

    my life is like a bubble now

    mirage-like appears this show

    nazuki us ke lab ki kya kahiye

    pankhuDi ek gulab ki si hai

    the softness of her lips is close

    to velvet petals of a rose

    chashm-e-dil khol is bhi aalam par

    yan ki auqat KHwab ki si hai

    do let your heart's eye see this world

    tis but a dreamlike state unfurled

    bar bar us ke dar pe jata hun

    haalat ab iztirab ki si hai

    repeatedly to her address

    I go, lo, such is my distress

    nuqta-e-KHal se tera abru

    bait ek intiKHab ki si hai

    your brow inscribed upon your skin

    a line of poetry akin

    main jo bola kaha ki ye aawaz

    usi KHana-KHarab ki si hai

    when I spoke out, she did complain

    "that derelict is here again"

    aatish-e-gham mein dil bhuna shayad

    der se bu kabab ki si hai

    this heart long burnt in sorrow's hell

    there is a barbecue like smell

    dekhiye abr ki tarah ab ke

    meri chashm-e-pur-ab ki si hai

    just as a monsoon cloud appears

    these eyes of mine are full of tears

    'mir' un nim-baz aankhon mein

    sari masti sharab ki si hai

    miir in her half-ope eyes there is

    the fullness of wine's heady bliss
