Mirza Ghalib

(27 December 1797 – 15 February 1869 / Agra / British India)

Kiss Me


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.
