Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)

But Failed

Bare blemish ticker tried to screen but failed,

Extent of blues wrought to be amounted to cure but failed.

Reflection of moon like skirt defiled by a degenerate entity,

Tried to efface the blemish of the moon repeatedly but failed.

There is no reckoning of watery-Oculus in this vast universe,

You had to rub off teardrops from every eye but failed.

This time is in destitute, every thread are found not less,

You had to entertain the desolate tickers but failed.

Every being in this time became mere a fire blowing eye,

Did all the efforts to bring the angel to witness but failed.
