A small abode

(137)  Beshii kichu nahi cai

We don't want anything more—
We want a little love and a small abode,
A place to hide our head from sun, rain, and snow.

Knowingly, we will never neglect you.
Just as we keep ourselves, we will keep this house of ours.
We want a peaceful, love-filled nest—
That is all we ask.

In destructive thunderstorms, you are our protector;
In kinship, you are our father.
Unbounded cordiality and a peerless dwelling
May we ever get.
