Before and now



(450)  Se amar apanar

He is my very own–
That I did not know; ere now, I did not know.
He was my melody, rehearsed meticulously,
But that I did not think; ere now, I did not think.

When He kept near,
Dancing to lyric and beat,
He was the sweetness of my psyche,
But I did not pay heed; ere now, I did not heed.

At present He has gone away, casting me aside,
Thrusting me into estrangement's fire;
But once there was so much love,
So much splendid aspiration.
At last I've understood; ere now, I did not see.

  1. Spiritual life is a baffling paradox, painfully sweet.
