1. Hazaron khwaishein aisi ki har khwaish pe dum nikale, 

Bahot nikale mere armaan lekin phir bhi kam nikale…

2. Kisi faqeer ki jholi mein jab maine ek sikka dala;

Tab yeh jaana ke iss mehangayi ke zamaane mein;

Duaen aaj bhi kitni sasti hai…

3. Haathon ki lakeron pe mat ja e Ghalib,

Naseeb unke bhi hote hai jinke haath nahi hote…

4. Kal bhi kal ki bat huwi, 

Aaj bhi kal me beet gaya, 

Kal phir kal me aaj huwa, 

Phir youn hi zamana beet gaya…

5. Mohabbat me nahi fark,

Jeene aur marne ka,

Usi ko dekh kar jeeta hai,

Jise kaafir pe dum nikle…

6. Kal Tak To Kehte They Ke Ghalib,

Bistar Se Uthah Nahin Jaata,

Aaj Duniya Se Jane Ki Taaqat Kahan Se Aa Gayee …

7. Badi wehshat se dekh raha hu is maikhane ko,

Is ne waqt hi nahi diya sar jhukane ko,

Mujhe marne se dar nahi lagta aye “umar”,

Bas sharm si aarahi hai us ke paas jane ko…

His words will heal your heart and touch your soul. Tell us your favourite shayaris of Ghalib in the comments.
