On "Mir Taqi Mir"

Even Mirza Ghalib acknowledged Mir Taqi Mir as a bigger poet than him. Reason? He conveyed deepest emotions in simple language and in small baher. Following shyer of Mir Taqi Mir mesmerized me for days. What a beautiful way of conveying the haal of a lover. Not widely known but Mir Taqi Mir was a son of a sufi saint and his poetry was a disguise of Malamati Sufism - and was commonly sung by faqeers on Dilli's lanes.

Note - I am still looking for full ghazal

ہم ہوئے تم ہوئے کہ میر ہوئے

ایک ہی زءف کے اسیر ہوئےواقعی میر کا جواب نہیں
