What pleasure can the heart know in this derelict city

Who has found fulfillment in this mortal world

Having asked for long life, I brought back four days

Two passed away in yearning and two in waiting

Tell these desires to go and settle down elsewhere

There is little room in this so tainted heart

How ill fated is that for “Zafar” even for his burial

Was not granted two yards of earth (for his grave) in the land of the beloved

— Bahadur Shah Zafar
