Girya-o-zari shayari

The act of wailing is an expression of human misery. It is, however, typically associated with lovers. He keeps lamenting over his separation from the beloved. It is one of the stock themes of classical poetry. Here are some examples

nikal ga.e haiñ jo bādal barasne vaale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsegā chashm-e-tar ke baġhair

nikal gae hain jo baadal barasne wale the

ye shahr aab ko tarsega chashm-e-tar ke baghair

Saleem Ahmed

rote phirte haiñ saarī saarī raat

ab yahī rozgār hai apnā

rote phirte hain sari sari raat

ab yahi rozgar hai apna

Shakeb Jalali

maiñ ronā chāhtā huuñ ḳhuub ronā chāhtā huuñ maiñ

phir us ke baad gahri nind sona chahta hun main
