Is it a secret?

(626)  Kamal kali kao na katha

Dear lotus bud, won't you say,
For whom do you stay awake?
Why keep mute on a talkative globe;
Whom do you pursue in a mental cubbyhole?

On many golden autumn nights,
Many dawns, many twilights,
Admiring suitors have arrived.
To none do you allow embrace,
Nor even do you choose a mate.
Within your mind but one name's afloat;
It seems heart's honey you've saved for him alone.

In rain and storm, you're never overcome;
In darkest gloom, you don't get lost.
Night and day, of just him you've thought.
