The Silver Lily - Poem by Louise Gluck

The nights have grown cool again, like the nights
Of early spring, and quiet again. Will
Speech disturb you? We're
Alone now; we have no reason for silence.

Can you see, over the garden-the full moon rises.
I won't see the next full moon.

In spring, when the moon rose, it meant
Time was endless. Snowdrops
Opened and closed, the clustered
Seeds of the maples fell in pale drifts.
White over white, the moon rose over the birch tree.
And in the crook, where the tree divides,
Leaves of the first daffodils, in moonlight
Soft greenish-silver.

We have come too far together toward the end now
To fear the end. These nights, I am no longer even certain
I know what the end means. And you, who've been
With a man--

After the first cries,
Doesn't joy, like fear, make no sound?
Louise Gluck

Nigaahen Bolti Hain Be-Tahaasha,

Muhabbat Pagalon Ki Guftagu Hai..

Chup chup Rehna seekh liya hai ,
har dukh sehna seekh liya hai ,

Ashkon ki Moujon ne dil k
anda

Ae maut unhe bhulaaye zamane guzar gaye,
Aa ja ke zehr khaaye zamaane guzar gaye,
O jaane wale aa

Dilon ko khareedney wale hazar mil jayege,
Aap ko dagha dene wale bar-bar mil jayege,
Milega na aa

Umer Iss Tarha Meri Ishq Main Guzri WASI, ,
jaise Pardais Mai Tehwaar Guzar Jata Hai, , , , ,

In ko Nasir na kabhi ankh se girne dena,
Un ko lagte hain meri ankh mein pyare aansu..

Na Hawas Us K Jism Ki
Na Shoq Us Ki Izzat Ka

Be-Matlabi Sa Banda Hun
Us Ki Sadgi Pe Marta Hun..

Aaj to hum ko paagal keh lo, pathar phenko, tanzz kar lo,
Ishq ki baazi khel naheen hain, khelo ge

Hawa e dasht mughay aab tu aajnabi na Samagh
Kay aab tu bhool gay Rastay bhe ghar kay mujhay

بنام طاقت کوئی اشارہ نہیں چلے گا
اداس نسلوں پہ اب اجارہ

Kyun Hota Hai Ye Aitbaar ki Dehleezon Pe Aksar..

Jo Boht Apney Hon Wohi Apne Nahi Rehtay..

Barg-E-Gul Par Rakh Gyi Shabnam Ka Moti Bad-E-Subah

Aur Chamkati Hai Iss Moti Ko Sooraj Ki Kiran

Qismat saath nahi deti,,
Ye Bilkul teray jaisi hai,,

Bichhad ke phir milenge hum, yaqeen kitna tha..
tha toh ek khwaab, haseen kitna tha.

Mere zawaal

Chalne Ka Hosla Nahi Rukna Mahal Kar Dya
Ishq Ke Is Safar Ne Tu Muj Ko Nidhal Kar Dya

Zahid sharab peene de masjid mein beth kar,
Yaa woh jagha bata jahan Khuda nahin..
(Mirza Ghalib)
