(778)  Amar ghare tumi ele

In my shrine You arrived;
So why then did You go?
If leaving was Your desire,
Why did You come like so.

The stars flash in the firmament;
You set alight a thousand gems.
Surrounding me, they all said:
"How could you let Him depart...
He should come again."

Weeping, the jasmines[1] sprawl in the dust;
With the dew they do not open up.
The lilies of the pond don't blossom,
Even now they sob.
