Friendless and aimless

(1167)  Amar calar pathe andhara rate

One dark night on my pathway,
Lamp in hand, Who are You that came?
I know You not, but near You came;
Effusively, love You gave.

In darkness, recognize the path I don't;
And none was with to call my own.
So I went on, summoning allies unknown...
You poured in my ear the mantra to invoke.

A penchant for movement, addicted to the road I've roamed;
Nonstop I have raced about without existential goal.
Then Yourself You appeared, and the light You showed;
To journey on the righteous path, me You told.
