Given below is a simple yet beautiful couplet by Firaq Gorakhpuri.

Main hoon, dil hai, tanhai hai
tum bhee hote to achcha hota


I am there, my heart is there and so is my loneliness,

If you were also there it would so good.

Firaq was Raghupati Sahay and was a writer, critic and, according to one commentator, one of the most noted contemporary Urdu poets in India. You can read more about him on our blog.
