Ummeed Shayari

We live because there is always a hope around. Life may be tough but this toughness is softened because we see, or try to see, some rays of hope even in the clouds that hang low and heavy. It applies to all of us including the lovers who would perish if left in lurch without hope of union. You may be interested in looking at these verses.

na koī va.ada na koī yaqīñ na koī umiid

magar hameñ to tirā intizār karnā thā

no promise,surety, nor any hope was due

yet I had little choice but to wait for you

ham ko un se vafā hai ummīd

From her I hope for constancy

who knows it not, to my dismay

aaj kuchh baat hai jo sham pe rona aaya

Every evening was, by hope, sustained

This evening's desperation makes me weep
