A Toast To The Men - Poem by Edgar Albert Guest

Here's to the men! Since Adam's time
They've always been the same;
Whenever anything goes wrong,
The woman is to blame.
From early morn to late at night,
The men fault-finders are;
They blame us if they oversleep,
Or if they miss a car.
They blame us if, beneath the bed,
Their collar buttons roll;
They blame us if the fire is out
Or if there is no coal.
They blame us if they cut themselves
While shaving, and they swear
That we're to blame if they decide
To go upon a tear.

Here's to the men, the perfect men!
Who never are at fault;
They blame us if they chance to get
The pepper for the salt.
They blame us if their business fails,
Or back a losing horse;
And when it rains on holidays
The fault is ours, of course.
They blame us when they fall in love,
And when they married get;
Likewise they blame us when they're sick,
And when they fall in debt.
For everything that crisscross goes
They say we are to blame;
But, after all, here's to the men,
We love them just the same!

Kya Shay Hai, Kis Amroz Ka Farda Hai Qayamat
Ae Mere Shabistan-E-Kuhan ! Kya Hai Qayamat?

When they were come into Faery's Court
They rang -- no one at home -- all gone to sport
And dance

Mein To Uss Ki Aaqabat Beeni Ka Kuch Qael Nahin
Jis Ne Afrangi Siasat Ko Kiya Yun Behijab

Wo Ja Chuka Hai,
Magar Judai Se Qabal Ka
Ik Narm Lamha
Thehar Gaya Hai
Meri Hatheli Ki Pusht

Naa Kr Hum Sy Umeed E Wafa Faraz
Hum Kuty Nhen Jo Wafa Krty Phire Gy

I see Senora Sanchez
along the river.
Black catfish
pop the silver
water surface,
waves unroll

Woh meri chin-e-jabin se ghum-e-pinhaan samjha,
raaz-e-maktoob ba-be-rabti-e-unwaan samjha.

Teri jannat se hijrat kar rahe haiN

Farishte kya baghavat kar rahe haiN

Hum apne jurm ka iqraa

Asaan Hai Kya Aisi Mohabbat Karna
Jis K Badle Mohabbat Na Mile...

Roshni Meri Wafa Ki Bohat Door Tak JayeGi,,

Shart Ye Hai K Saleeqy Se Jalaao MujhKo....!!

Bolta hoon jo woh bulaata hai,
Tan ke pinjre main us ka tota hoon..

What can lambkins do
All the keen night through?
Nestle by their woolly mother
The careful ewe.

Ana Ki Baat Hai Warna Mohabbat Ab B Baki Hai
Usay Meri Mjhe Uski Zarorat Ab B Baki Hai

Farebi Bhi Hoon Ziddi Bhi Hoon Bad-Kalam Bhi..!!

Masoomiyat Kho Di Hai Maine Wafa Karte Karte..!

Ishq Fakeer-e-Haram, Ishq Ameer-e-Junood,

Ishq hai Ibn-e-Sabeel, Is ke Hazaroon Muqaam...

Aik Hee Milne Wala Tha,
Aesa Bichra Ke Phir Mila Hee Nahi

Mile kese sadiyon ki pyaas aur pani, zara phir se kehna,
Barri dilrubaa hai yeh saari kahani, zara

Woh hijar to deta hai judai nahin deta,
Kya tarfa tamasha hai bhujai nahin deta,
Mehsoos to hota h

Roya kuch es tara mere seenay se lag k wo
Aisa laga jaise kabhi be wafa na tha.
