Where goes the time?

(282)  Manete lukiye theke

You lie hidden inside the mind
Within the mind, You do Your liila.
In the mind, Lord, I catch hold of You;
Outside, You don't let Yourself get caught.

Your game consists of pleasure and pain—
So much respect, so much neglect.
Your liila, eternally—
Where it leads, please let me see.

If I don't look enough within,
Don't You perceive my sincerity?

Meanwhile, Lord, where goes the time?
Today, I stand alone in the dark.
Piercing the heart of darkness,
Let loose the splendor of Your light.
