har ek baat pe -- by Mirza Ghalib

I'm in a very poetic mood now. I love the following Gazal sung by Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh. It was written by Mirza Ghalib.
Enjoy !
"har ek baat pe kahate ho tum ki tuu kyaa hai"
by Mirza Ghalib

har ek baat pe kahate ho tum ki tuu kyaa hai
tumhii.n kaho ke ye a.ndaaz-e-guftaguu kyaa hai

rago.n me.n dau.Date phirane ke ham nahii.n qaayal
jab aa.Nkh hii se na Tapakaa to phir lahuu kyaa hai

chipak rahaa hai badan par lahuu se pairaahan
hamaarii jeb ko an haajat-e-rafuu kyaa hai
[pairaahan=dress/cloth/robe; haajat=need; rafuu=darning]

jalaa hia jism jahaa.N dil bhii jal gayaa hogaa
kuredate ho jo ab raakh justajuu kyaa hai

rahii na taaqat-e-guftaar aur agar ho bhii to kis ummiid pe kahiye ke aarazuu kyaa hai

[guftaar=speech]
