In His absence

(1116)  Akashe aj tarar mala

Today on sky is the garland of a star;
Within its mind is darkness.
Night and day in absence of its Maker,
The sea of woe is immense beyond measure.

In flower garden there is no sweet fragrance;
Without moon, the heavens are indifferent.
In frost there is no soothing coolness;
Flavorless, the honey lacks its substance.

Without his tail, the peacock is glum;
Crying, he spurns life's exuberance.
A pair of feet once restless to dance,
Now they've become cadence-oblivious.
