Enchanting Urdu couplets

Read the following qita'a I hope you would like it. It is one my favourites:

Aao is lamha-e-fursat ko farozaan karlein
Teergi badhne se pahle chiraaghaan karlein
Shab guzarni hai to kucchh uska bhi samaan karlein
Dil ke zakhmo ko ginein, dard ka unwaan karlein


The lines were penned by Ali Abbas Ummeed, a native of Ghazipur.
