Jahan tera naqsh-e-qadam dekhte hain
Khyaaba khyaaba erum dekhte hain

Where impression of your presence, I see
Visions of heavens all around, I see


Tere sarv-qaamat say ik qadd-e-aadam
Qayamat ke fitne ko kam dekhte hain

Your beautiful tall stature makes even
The turmoil of the end of days look shorter, in my view


Tamasha ke aye mahv-e-aa-eena daari
Tujhe kis tamanna se hum dekhte hain

Amusing it is, that you are absorbed in your reflection
While, with such a longing, I see you


Bana kar faqeeron ka hum bhays Ghalib
Tamasha-e ahl-e-karam dekhte hain

In a begger's guise Ghalib
Spectacle of generocity, I see

बात कम कीजिए, ज़हानत को छुपाते रहिये
अजनबी शहर है यह, दोस्त बनाते रहिये
दुश्मनी लाख सही, ख़त्म न कीजिए रिश्ता
दिल मिले या न मिले हाथ मिलाते रहिये
ये तो चेहरे का फ़क़त अक्स है तस्वीर नहीं
इस पे कुछ रंग अभी और चढाते रहिये
गम है आवारा अकेले मैं भटक जाता है
जिस जगह रहिये वहां मिलते मिलाते रहिये
जाने कब चाँद बिखर जाए घने जंगल मैं
अपने घर के दर-ओ-दीवार सजाते रहिये !!!

jisko Monday office jana hai.
