via Daily Prompt: Anticipation


Following is a couplet from very renowned ghazal((in Middle Eastern and Indian literature and music) a lyric poem with a fixed number of verses and a repeated rhyme, typically on the theme of love, and normally set to music.) of Mirza Ghalib.

I couldn’t have bettered this post than this couplet.

Couplet :

ye na thi hamari qismat ki visal-e-yar hota

agar aur jiite rahte yaha intizar hota

Translation :

It was not in my fate to unite with you
even if I had lived more, there would only have been an anticipation of our union.
