With just a memory

(901)  Apar payodhi par haye ele

You arrived, having crossed the shoreless sea,
For my sake bestowing so much mercy,
Respecting all lowly creatures
And forgetting Your own lofty stature.

Numerous ages have elapsed thenceforth,
And from the sky many a star was lost;
But calling to mind those rosy feet of Yours,
I've simply swum past every obstruction.

Tempests have come to put out the lantern,
And comets wanted to burn the flower;
Time's vicious teeth have been hankering
To devour all of my sweetness.
