Swimming upstream

(1123)  Aloke tomar liila

With effulgence lies Your game divine...
On seeing darkness why do You give fright?
In the heart are many states of mind...
When mood's forgot, why make sense of want arise?

Those who, Yourself in alluring dress
Have witnessed in the midst of fondness...
About them have You got some other view
Such that You have kept far removed?

Those who cherish You,
Hoping just to give You pleasure...
Toward them a look You don't take,
As if, forgetting, You have gone away.

I am an atom; You are Cosmic Being,
Without any limit, any boundary...
But for an atom to get rid,
That You cannot; well You know it!
