My wicker basket

(189)  Duhkhera sathii tumi sukhera bandhu tumi

In grief You are my companion, in joy You are my friend;
Do not thrust me from Your view.
When tears burst from pain or pleasure,
Do not leave me unattended.

In the chronic cadence of dance, safeguard my garland;
Keep an eye on the colored flowers that fill my wicker basket.
Approaching with a tender smile, take them away with love—
Never hesitate or be reluctant.

Though You might want what I cannot give,
Do not disdain what I can commit.
