Just to throw my own two cents to the post by Adnan, there's a rubai by Faiz Ahmed Faiz called Raat yun dil mein, which goes something like:
Raat yun dil mein teri khoi hui yaad aayee
Jaisay veeranay mein chupke se bahar aa jaaye
Jaisay sehraon mein haulay say chalay baad-e-naseem
Jaisay beemar ko bewajah qarar aajaaye
No wonder its no longer than that. A piece of art indeed! And no I'm not missing anyone in Istanbul. Its a wonder why I couldnt find any mp3 for this song through google. It must be out there somewhere.
