Antithesis of selfishness

(741)  Jalbhara meghe bijali haniya

With clouds full of rain, the lightning flashing,
You had arrived at dark midnight.[1]
With hearty expectation and affection,
You had smiled in the mirror of my mind.

I was looking within the material world
To find bliss through objects inert.
Not once did I gaze at Your face;
I did not see that You'd returned.

Mad was I, with my own self obsessed,
Just liking to think of personal interest.
I did not consider Your resolute aim,
The very quintessence of Your existence.
