Dil Shayari

Reading these verses, you would pass through various states that the human heart takes us through. You would wonder how these verses written by others are indeed the true voice of our own feelings. They seem to express our own desires and passion, sadness and deprivation, as also our experience of separation in the midst of an elusive hope for union.

añdherī raat ko maiñ roz-e-ishq samjhā thā

charāġh ne jalāyā to dil bujhā merā

andheri raat ko main roz-e-ishq samjha tha

charagh tu ne jalaya to dil bujha mera

People meet each other, fairly frequently

But, meeting of hearts, seldom does one see
