Mirza Ghalib

Kiss Me

Ghalib born Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan was a prominent Urdu and Persian poet during the last years of the Mughal Empire.






Ghooncha-e-nashiguftha ko dhoor se math dikha key yoon
Bosey ko poonchtha houn mein munh se muchey batha ki yoon

Translation:

Don't stay afar pouting your lips at me like a rosebud;
I asked you for a kiss--let your lips answer my plea.
