The unanswered question

(726)  Tomar kache amar prashna

Lord, to You these are my queries;
Indifferent One, hear me please.
Why do living beings come in tears,
When they survive only by smiling?

Why is the flower eaten by worms
And honey consumed by black bees?
Why aren't smiles sold at market
When babies cry perpetually?
Some can't scrape together a grain of wheat,
While others eat, scrapping a sea of kheer.

When evening colors have beckoned me,
Why then is the dark of night so deep?
Why does the mind wander astray
When You are present ever and always?
