Taking leave and saying thanks

(283)  Elam ese kaj karilam

I came and did the job;
Now it's time to go back.
I received a trayful of flowers,
And threaded a garland in return.

Compared to what I received,
I exchanged much less.
What I got in color and form
And fragrance was the best.

For those who loved me,
This garland is wet with tears.

Drawn by duty I am leaving,
But memories stay with me for life.
This sweet memory, this undying song,
Can it ever be forgotten?
