Was it all for naught?

(1392)  Asbe bale, gele je cale ele na

Having said You will return,
You left; and, having gone, You never came.
The jasmine garland has withered;
You accepted not the sandalpaste.

The song composed was just for Thee;
Its tune was practiced round the clock.
The One for Whom that song and melody,
He did not hear it... He came not.

All the flowers have dropped away;
Only a piece of string has endured.
At end of day, like a bloom disgraced,[1]
Is the song that was not heard.

  1. What was the use of my penance when You've gone and pay heed no more?
