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

No Hope

I am left with no hope at all,
No possibility to reach my goal,

The Day of my death is fixed,
I am so very anxious that I can not sleep all night.

Though I know the reward of obedience and worship,
But I have no tendency for it.

I am silent for a certain reason,
Otherwise I can convince you with my words,

Why I shouldn't cry,
For when I don't, she asks about me,

My heart is burning, though you cannot see the spot,
But O my doctor, can't you smell my heart burn?

I have reached to a certain state,
From where even I cannot find myself.

I am dying (Waiting anxiously) for my death,
I don't know where the hell my death has gone.

With what face you will go to Ka'ba, O! Ghalib,
You should be ashamed of yourself while thinking to go there.

कोई उम्मीद बर नहीं आती, कोई सूरत नज़र नहीं आती मौत का एक दिन मुयाय्यम है नींद क्यों रात भर नहीं आती आगे आती थी हाल-ए-दिल पर हंसी, अब किसी बात पर नहीं आती है कुछ ऐसी ही बात जो चुप है, वर्ना क्या बात करनी नहीं आती दाग-ए-दिल गर नज़र नहीं आता, वो भी आये चरागार नहीं आती हम वहाँ हैं जहाँ से हमको भी, कुछ हमारी खबर नहीं आती क्यों न चीखों की याद करते हैं, मेरी आवाज़ गर नहीं आती मरते हैं आरज़ू में मरने की, मौत आती है पर नहीं आती काबा किस मुंह से जाओगे ग़ालिब, शर्म तुमको मगर नहीं आती Koi ummeed bar nahi aati, koi surat nazar nahi aati Maut ka ek din muayyan hai, Neend kyun raat bar nahi aati Aage aati thi haal e dil pe hasi, Ab kisi baat par nahi aati Hai kuch aisi hi baat jo chup hai, Warna kya baat kar nahi aati Daag-e-dil gar nazar nahi aata, wo bhi aye charagar nahi aati Hum wahan hai jahan se humko bhi, Kuch humari khabar nahin aati kyon na cheekhon ki yaad karte hain, meri aawaaz gar nahin aati Marte hai aarzoo mein marne ki, Maut aati hai par nahi aati kaaba kis munh se jaaoge Ghalib, sharam tumko magar nahi aati
