    bāteñ jo thiiñ durust purāne nisāb meñ

    un meñ se ek bhī to nahīñ hai kitāb meñ

    mahrūmiyoñ ne bazm sajā.ī hai ḳhvāb meñ

    sab ke alag alag haiñ manāzir sarāb meñ

    paanī tarah ahl-e-havas ne sharāb

    likkhī ga.ī hai tishna-laboñ ke hisāb meñ

    sab naam haiñ durust magar vāqi.a ġhalat

    har baat sach nahīñ jo likhī hai kitāb meñ

    sad-ātisha agar ho tirā rañg-rūp hai

    jo rañg phuul meñ hai nasha hai sharāb meñ

    us to ek lafz bhī ham ko nahīñ hai yaad

    kal raat ek sher kahā thā jo ḳhvāb meñ

    kuchh sher shāyad us ko pasand aa ga.e 'kamāl'

    hoñToñ ke kuchh nishāñ haiñ tumhārī kitāb meñ

    baaten jo thin durust purane nisab mein

    un mein se ek bhi to nahin hai kitab mein

    mahrumiyon ne bazm sajai hai KHwab mein

    sab ke alag alag hain manazir sarab mein

    pani ki tarah ahl-e-hawas ne sharab pi

    likkhi gai hai tishna-labon ke hisab mein

    sab nam hain durust magar waqia ghalat

    har baat sach nahin jo likhi hai kitab mein

    sad-atisha agar ho tera rang-rup hai

    jo rang phul mein hai nasha hai sharab mein

    us ka to ek lafz bhi hum ko nahin hai yaad

    kal raat ek sher kaha tha jo KHwab mein

    kuchh sher shayad us ko pasand aa gae 'kamal'

    honTon ke kuchh nishan hain tumhaari kitab mein
