Too demanding

(1229)  Ami bhalobasiyachi durer tarake

I'm attached to a star of someplace remote;
Oh, I don't find it up close.
Why it's so, I don't know, I don't know.
In psyche was the hope that I'll receive love,
But You did not come down at all.
Why it's so, I don't follow, I don't follow.

A shrine I've adorned, a hymn I've composed...
With pleasing flowers I am threading a garland.
Maybe the way You have forgotten...
Or perhaps You forget nothing whatsoever.

Maybe somewhere a fault's still abiding;
Perhaps in love there's some vanity.
You could come to rectify the deficiency,
But that small mercy You did not concede.
