He did not have much desires for worldly things.

While on his death bed, his father instructed Meer to "Adopt the path of love. A life without love is an ordeal and losing one's heart in love is the real art. Though this path is riddled with difficulties, love is what drives the world." ... more »

Best Poem of Meer Taqi Meer

Ankhon Mein Ji Mera Hai Idhar Yar Dekhna

ankhon mein ji mera hai idhar yar dekhna
ashiq ka apane akhri didar dekhna

kaisa chaman ke ham se asiron ko mana hai
chak-e-qafas se bag ki diwar dekhna

ankhen churaio na tuk abr-e-bahar se
meri taraf bhi didah-e-khunbar dekhna

ae ham-safar na able ko pahunche chashm-e-tar
laga hai mere paon mein a kar dekhna

hona na char chashm dik uss zulm-paishah se
hoshiyar zinhar khabardar dekhna

sayad dil hai dag-e-judai se rashk-e-bag
tujh ko bhi ho nasib ye gulzar dekhna

gar zamzama yahi hai koi din to hamsafar
is fasl hi mein ...
