Everyone but me

(953)  Tomari lagiya achi je jagiya

Because of You awake am I;
On my joined eyelids there's no sleep.
I have but one desire, and it's unsatisfied;
Why this stinginess with me only?

In air and sky, Your hymns Earth sings;
Amid the fragrance, floral pollen swoons.
Your splendor is amazing in each molecule
And in the private crannies of the psyche.

The sweet smile of stars, the lamp of the moon...
Among life's light-rays, they are all good;
Yet in this climate, even more nectar You pour,
Making hearts brim with a gentle footfall,
With southern wind wrapped in a tender touch.
