MORE BY Mirza Ghalib

    phir kuchh ik dil ko be-qarārī hai

    siina juyā-e-zaḳhm-e-kārī hai

    restless again this heart is found

    my breast now seeks a deeper wound

    phir jigar khodne lagā nāḳhun

    āmad-e-fasl-e-lāla-kārī hai

    'gain nails my liver lacerate

    red tulips soon will be in spate

    qibala-e-maqsad-e-nigāh-e-niyāz

    phir vahī parda-e-amārī hai

    towards the goal are eyes now keen

    again the curtain is between

    chashm dallāl-e-jins-e-rusvā.ī

    dil ḳharīdār-e-zauq-e-ḳhvārī hai

    eyes: broker of wares of disgrace

    heart: buyer with zest to abase

    vahī sad-rañg nāla-farsā.ī

    vahī sad-gona ashk-bārī hai

    'gain hundred hues of sad lament

    and hundred fold are tears spent

    dil havā-e-ḳhirām-e-nāz se phir

    mahsharistān-e-be-qarārī hai

    my heart in hope of graceful gait

    is doomsday's ferment incarnate

    jalva phir arz-e-nāz kartā hai

    roz bāzār-e-jāñ-sipārī hai

    'gain beauty's airs are on display

    life is the price you pay today

    phir usī bevafā pe marte haiñ

    phir vahī zindagī hamārī hai

    dying for that faithless one again

    my life, the same, does then remain

    phir khulā hai dar-e-adālat-e-nāz

    garm-bāzār-e-faujdārī hai

    doors of her court open again

    her lover's lawsuits are amain

    ho rahā hai jahān meñ andher

    zulf phir sirishta-dārī hai

    now darkness in this world does reign

    her tresses rule here once again

    phir diyā pāra-e-jigar ne savāl

    ek fariyād o āh-o-zārī hai

    heart's pieces file a claim once more

    plaint and lament is here galore

    phir hue haiñ gavāh-e-ishq talab

    ashk-bārī hukm-jārī hai

    love's witnesses are in demand

    tears need be shed is the command

    dil o mizhgāñ jo muqaddama thā

    aaj phir us rū-bakārī hai

    suit tween her lashes and my heart

    will 'gain be heard today from start

    be-ḳhudī be-sabab nahīñ 'ġhālib'

    kuchh to hai jis parda-dārī hai

    your stupor's not of cause devoid

    there's something that want to hide

    phir kuchh ek dil ko be-qarari hai

    sina juya-e-zaKHm-e-kari hai

    restless again this heart is found

    my breast now seeks a deeper wound

    phir jigar khodne laga naKHun

    aamad-e-fasl-e-lala-kari hai

    'gain nails my liver lacerate

    red tulips soon will be in spate

    qibala-e-maqsad-e-nigah-e-niyaz

    phir wahi parda-e-amari hai

    towards the goal are eyes now keen

    again the curtain is between

    chashm dallal-e-jins-e-ruswai

    dil KHaridar-e-zauq-e-KHwari hai

    eyes: broker of wares of disgrace

    heart: buyer with zest to abase

    wahi sad-rang nala-farsai

    wahi sad-gona ashk-bari hai

    'gain hundred hues of sad lament

    and hundred fold are tears spent

    dil hawa-e-KHiram-e-naz se phir

    mahsharistan-e-be-qarari hai

    my heart in hope of graceful gait

    is doomsday's ferment incarnate

    jalwa phir arz-e-naz karta hai

    roz bazar-e-jaan-sipari hai

    'gain beauty's airs are on display

    life is the price you pay today

    phir usi bewafa pe marte hain

    phir wahi zindagi hamari hai

    dying for that faithless one again

    my life, the same, does then remain

    phir khula hai dar-e-adalat-e-naz

    garm-bazar-e-faujdari hai

    doors of her court open again

    her lover's lawsuits are amain

    ho raha hai jahan mein andher

    zulf ki phir sirishta-dari hai

    now darkness in this world does reign

    her tresses rule here once again

    phir diya para-e-jigar ne sawal

    ek fariyaad o aah-o-zari hai

    heart's pieces file a claim once more

    plaint and lament is here galore

    phir hue hain gawah-e-ishq talab

    ashk-bari ka hukm-jari hai

    love's witnesses are in demand

    tears need be shed is the command

    dil o mizhgan ka jo muqaddama tha

    aaj phir us ki ru-bakari hai

    suit tween her lashes and my heart

    will 'gain be heard today from start

    be-KHudi be-sabab nahin 'ghaalib'

    kuchh to hai jis ki parda-dari hai

    your stupor's not of cause devoid

    there's something that want to hide
