Ghazals of Mirza Ghalib. The Ghazals are after a few paragraphs from the top of the page.

Hazaaro khwahishain aisi ki har khwaish pe dam nikle
Bahut nikle mere armaan par phir bhi kam nikle

Thousands of desires and each one takes a lifetime
I've had a lot of desires and yet they are less!

Mohabbat mai nahin hai fark jeene aur marne ka
Usee ko dekhkar jeete hai jis kaafir pe dam nikle

There is no difference between living and dying in love
I live by the sight of her, that unfaithful taking whose name I die!
